what is a junior counselor?
MAKE MORE THAN JUST A COUPLE BUCKS. MAKE AN IMPACT.
Camp is THE PLACE TO BE for high school students looking for a summer job. Students who've completed 10th-11th grade by the summer have the opportunity to join our team at Forest Glen. Each Junior Counselor is paired with a Senior Staffer who will teach them the ropes (literally!) and help them grow in their walk with Christ. High school students can make some money and also make an impact with us this summer.
Founded in 1974, Forest Glen has locations in the beautiful Sam Houston National Forest, just an hour north of the Greater Houston metroplex, and in the peaceful Brazos Valley, just 45 minutes southeast of Waco, TX. By joining our Summer Staff, high school students can help us provide an environment where people can encounter God.
