Our Volunteer Counselors are a cherished part of the Family Camp community at Camp Koinonia.

 

These volunteers have two main jobs: to serve the families of Koinonia and to serve the kids of Koinonia.

 

Being part of the Family Camp staff is a life-changing experience. Counselors find lifelong friends at Koinonia. We thank God for our wonderful Counselors!

 

Things you will need to fill out your Counselor Application:

-Your health insurance and medication information

-The email addresses or phone numbers of two references

-Your summer availability 

 

Service to Families: Each Counselor is assigned to a family for the week. The Counselors will experience camp with his or her “camp family,” sitting with them at Mass and meals, participating with them in skits, and getting to know each individual member of the family. Counselors assist the family by helping them get situated at camp and introducing them to all the great camp traditions such as hikes to the falls, campfire songs and surprise KKs (Kris Kringles).

Service to Kids: Every morning in between Morning Prayer and lunch, the campers are split up into morning groups. Each Counselor will be assigned to work with a particular age group. As group leaders, they will read Bible stories, assist with making crafts, lead spiritual discussions and play games with the kids in their group.

 

The Counselor Experience: Being part of the Family Camp staff is a life-changing experience. Counselors will start the week on Saturday getting to know one another and training and preparing for the days ahead. Each night thereafter, they will engage in Staff Sharing, a time to deepen their spiritual connection and bond with fellow staff. They receive support and leadership development from Program Staff and Spiritual Directors.  Finally, on Thursdays, the Counselors will finish the week with fun-filled staff games and activities.

 

Perks: Counselors find lifelong friends at Koinonia. Counselors are eligible to receive documented service hours for their week at Camp Koinonia. Counselors enjoy all the fun we have to offer at Koinonia, including swimming, volleyball, tetherball, square dancing, arts and crafts, and ping-pong. Most importantly, Counselors make a huge impact on the families and kids they serve. We thank God for our wonderful Counselors!
