You already know you love camp.  You love the ministry, the community and getting to be a part of seeing lives transformed. Kidder Creek's Jr. Counselor Program will allow you to be a part of facilitating a life transforming week for our little day campers.  Under the guidance of Kidder Creek staff, spend your morning leading groups of campers in skits, songs, crafts, games, pond time and learning about the truth and love of Jesus. 

Your evenings will be spent doing recreation and adventure activities with your fellow Jr. Counselors and spending time in worship and fellowship around the campfire.  Come and be a part of what God is doing at Kidder Creek!
For Students Entering 9-12 Grades.

Amenities

Waterfront

Besides a great waterfront, the Kidder Creek pond features the Aqua Glide which has a

Camperships
