Volunteer Counselors: About


The role of a counselor is a unique experience. You get the chance to work with kids in different grade levels ranging from 2-12th grade, helping them grow their connection with nature and their relationship with God.



As part of our dedicated team, counselors are integral to the transformative experiences we offer at Camp Cedar Glen. Living on-site, you'll be in the heart of the action, sharing in every moment of joy and discovery alongside our campers. Your journey with us begins with comprehensive training and a thorough California State Background check, ensuring the highest standards of safety and care.

Our staff arrives a day prior to the campers, setting the stage for a well-prepared, memorable camp experience. This commitment underscores our dedication to creating a safe, enriching, and supportive environment for everyone at Camp Cedar Glen.

Camper Care

Our counselors are the heart of Camp Cedar Glen, sparking joy and enthusiasm that are essential for a memorable camp experience. Your presence and passion fuel the fun and forge the strong community bonds that define our camp. By engaging with campers, you create a nurturing environment where meaningful relationships blossom—our cornerstone for fostering positive behavior and a sense of belonging.

At Camp Cedar Glen, we embrace the curiosity our campers have about God and faith. They look to us for guidance, not for perfect answers, but for sincere and thoughtful responses that reflect a caring spirit. Your role in these spiritual conversations is invaluable, offering insights that help shape their understanding and growth in a supportive, faith-filled setting.
