Counselor

Get ready for the best summer of your life. No, seriously, we’re not kidding. Camp Cedarbrook is a great place to spend your summer. Not only is it a great missions opportunity, you make new friends and family and you impact hundreds of girls lives. You get to be in the great outdoors in New York’s Adirondack mountains instead of working inside cooking fries or folding clothes. Prepare yourself for a whole new group of best friends and an adventure you won’t forget.

Why work at Camp Cedarbrook in the Adirondacks:

Our staff are people who love God, love camp, and love teaching campers. Our staff forms a strong, committed team with a single focus: a safe summer filled with learning, fun, and spiritual growth. “I’ve been thinking a lot about how camp is such an amazing experience. Like, I’ve learned more about myself and my faith than I ever could have imagined. I’ve interacted with girls on such a deep level and had the opportunity, not only to help them grow, but share in this growth. Sometimes I just think how cool that is, and I get so excited!! I get to share in so many campers’ spiritual growth, and that personal interaction really can’t be achieved anywhere else. I don’t know if that makes sense? I just have appreciated this experience so much.” -Kayla Kroning, Cedarbrook Staff Member
