Teen Counselor Information

Henrico 4-H Teen Counselors

Teens turning 14 years old or older by January 1, must apply to attend camp.  At this age, teens are expected to serve in a leadership role as Teen Counselors.  Training is given before camp to prepare teens for the responsibilities of this role.


At camp, Teen Counselors will…

— Supervise 9- to 13-year-old campers both in cabins and during all activities.

— Show a positive attitude, lead by example, and be a role model for campers.

— Participate in all camp activities, and be on time for these activities.

— Provide motivation and encouragement for all campers, especially those who have trouble adjusting to camp.

— Assist campers with cabin and team duties, and make sure these duties are completed.

— Provide leadership for team activities.

— Abide by all rules of the 4-H Center, as well as other rules outlined by 4-H agents and staff.

— Help settle down and account for campers at lights-out.

— Spend quality time with campers, not with other counselors and camp staff.

— Assist 4-H camp staff and agents with classes, programs, and routine duties as needed.

— Immediately inform adult leaders and agents of any problems and concerns.

— Have fun, while remembering they are at camp as leaders, not campers.

— Be patient, caring, responsible, and adaptable in dealing with people and  situations at camp.
