Apply now to be a 2020 4-H camp counselor

Southwest Minnesota 4-H camp counselor applications are now open for youth in grades 9 and older. Serving as a camp counselor is a key leadership role for many 4-H youth. Camp counselors learn important leadership skills like teamwork, commitment and cooperation. Camp counselors support younger youth in their learning and guide them in having a positive and fun experience. Counselors work with staff to create and lead camp activities.
