Country Life Kids Camp offers a unique and rewarding opportunity for teens through college age students with a passion for leading, teaching and inspiring our youth.  All young adults struggle with life battles facing adversity, social challenges, changes in responsibilities, freedoms, discovering their identity, finding a life purpose, etc.  This training experience provides not only a work experience, but also a tool kit for life in the business world.  Through a supportive atmosphere, we help young adults discover their strengths, gain confidence and learn valuable leadership lessons in an environment where accountability, good decision-making and safety come first.  Our program engages young adults with the opportunity to share their time and talent with younger children and take an active role in building this ever-important ministry of making a difference in a young child’s life.  We encourage you and your family to click the links to our brochures below that might fit the experience you are looking for based on your age and graduate status.  We encourage you to apply and interview with us for this amazing opportunity.  Please note that if you cannot commit to the time commitment required we encourage you to contact us about our volunteer and service hour opportunities for all ages!   

Our staff consists of only the most qualified and passionate counselors.  In fact, each counselor under the age of 25 is first admitted into our Camp Counselor in Training, Staff in Training or Internship programs.  These three programs are geared for different ages and are competitive feeder programs for us to select the best counselors for our camp.  They are three week volunteer programs that provide the future counselors with the mentoring, training and experience needed to succeed.

"Working at Country Life Kids Camp as a Camp Counselor in Training (CCIT) definitely impacted me long term.  Coming into camp, I was kind of nervous, I thought I would be the "low kid on the totem pole" since I was the youngest and that counselors wouldn't look at me as a responsible person and that the kids would ignore me because I am only sixteen.  I was wrong.  Everyone was so nice and respectful, what I enjoyed most was getting to work with so many different kinds of people.  I learned to appreciate the unique qualities that every child and counselor processes."     -Jess Dutko
