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.

CAMP COUNSELOR!

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!
