After a year-long closure due to COVID-19, for many Arizona overnight summer camps, the 2021 summer camp season is a light of fun at the end of a tunnel.
St. Joseph’s Youth Camp is a non-denominational, nonprofit youth camp near Flagstaff.
The camp’s season is set to begin June 13.
“We are looking forward to providing youth with the outdoor, educational and leadership experiences, that has been especially missing from schools since COVID has started,” said St. Joseph’s Youth Camp Director Sarah Amos. “Summer camp is one of the greatest highlights for many children and we are just so excited to be creating those memories this summer.”
St. Joseph’s Youth Camp is looking for teens ages 16 to 17 to be youth counselors for the upcoming summer season. Youth counselors register for a week-long counselor-in-training week, when they will go through First Aid/CPR/AED certification, child safety training, and have the opportunity to earn community service hours. Additionally, the teens will partake in personal development activities and discussions aimed to give them skills in communication, leadership, greater good, positivity and inclusion. With these skills, they will be ready to be a leader both at camp this summer and in their day-to-day lives.
