what is senior staff?
YOU'RE THE HEARTBEAT OF CAMP.
Our Senior Staff help set the tone for all that we do at camp. Graduated high school seniors and current college students from all over the state make up the majority of our summer staff team. From helping lead and facilitate our super-fun camp activities to being a good role model for our campers, Senior Staff are involved in every aspect of what makes camp... CAMP!
If you want to grow in your walk with Christ this summer, make lasting friendships and lifelong memories, Senior Staff is where it's at!
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, 12th grade-college students can help us provide an environment where people can encounter God.

What will I do at camp?
Be a mentor.
Our Senior Staff set a Godly example for our team and show our campers how to grow in their walk with Christ as well as learn the ropes (literally!) of all our fun camp activities.
Super-fun camp activities
Senior Staff lead and facilitate tons of super-fun activities such as:
- Canoes / Paddleboards
- Archery / BB Guns / Tomahawks
- Gaga Ball / 9-Square In The Air
- Archery Tag / Nerf War
- + Much more!
Day Camp in Huntsville is for kids from the greater Houston area. They get picked up on our buses and spend the day at camp!
Wilderness Ridge in Waco is for boys who come from all over Texas. Their parents drop them off to spend the week at camp!
As counselors, Senior Staff get to have a blast by leading songs and skits, playing group games and camp activities, and pouring into kids lives by being great role models!
Lifeguarding + Ropes Courses
Qualified Senior Staff will be certified in CPR/First Aid, Lifeguarding and advanced Ropes Course skills. Once certified, you will manage and lead these areas for our campers. You can use these skills for future years at camp or wherever else you may work in the future!
Senior Staff also pitch in and help in Guest Services, where they help keep camp clean and campers happy! From housekeeping to kitchen cleaning to activity setup, Senior Staff serve our guests alongside the rest of our staff team in order to provide an amazing environment for our campers.
