Leadership Camp (Pennsylvania)
June 18 – 24, 2023
For boys entering 6th – 8th grade
Being a Counselor
Leadership Camp is an action-packed, one-week overnight summer camp for entering 6th – 8th grade boys. Drawing upon decades of experience, the camp aims to help boys develop the skills and virtues necessary to be leaders. In order to achieve this goal, the staff is crucial. Leadership Camp is looking for counselors who stand out in maturity, industriousness, spirit of service, and desire to grow in personal character.
Counselors spend a week in the summer serving a group of campers. Leadership Camp rests on the idea that one cannot give what one does not have. Therefore, both during the preparatory workshop and the camp itself, counselors receive training in their job and advice and encouragement about how to develop their own character. Additionally, spiritual activities – such as daily Holy Mass, the Rosary, and times of prayer – are offered for those interested.
Becoming a staff member is a selective process. Interested candidates can apply below.
Senior Counselors: Responsible for a team of about 10 campers and 2 junior counselors. Must be entering college or in college.
Junior Counselors: Assistant to a Senior Counselor on a team of about 10 campers. Must be entering high school junior or senior.
