Counselor Training

Jillian CrenshawWe know that young campers look up to their counselors and aspire to be just like them. At Lakeshore’s Counselor Training Camp, we take a weekend to guide our counselors-to-be towards the type of leaders that parents and children want them to be.

Counselor Training #1: February 11-13, 2022
Counselor Training #2: April 22-24, 2022

To register for counselor training, click here and it will lead you to our online summer registration form. Registering for counselor training is similar to registering for a summer camp session.

Each church is asked to provide adult counselors to stay in the cabin with their group, as well as participate with their youth during sessions and free time. In order to follow Safe Sanctuary guidelines, we recommend two adults of the same gender of the youth they are bringing. However, at a minimum, each group needs to bring one counselor per six youth of the same gender. Counselors must be at least 4 years older than the oldest youth they will be supervising.

This does NOT include Counselor Training! You do not need or have to send adults with your kids from your church if they are coming to the Counselor Training Retreat.
