After a year-long closure due to COVID-19 for many Arizona overnight summer camps, the 2021 summer camp season is a light of fun at the end of a tunnel.
St. Joseph’s Youth Camp, a non-denominational, 501c(3) youth camp in Mormon Lake near Flagstaff, is among those reopening. The camp’s season is set to begin Sunday, June 13.
“We are looking forward to providing youth with the outdoor, educational and leadership experiences, that has been especially missing from schools since COVID has started,” camp Director Sarah Amos said. “Summer camp is one of the greatest highlights for many children and we are just so excited to be creating those memories this summer.”
St. Joseph’s, which provides a traditional camp experience for youths ages 8 to 17, is looking for teens ages 16 and 17 to serve as youth counselors for the upcoming summer season.
Youth counselors register for a week-long counselor-in-training week, where they will go through First Aid/CPR/AED certification, child safety training, and have the opportunity to earn community service hours.
Additionally, the teens will partake in personal development activities and discussions aimed to give them skills in communication, leadership, greater good, positivity and inclusion.
Registration deadline is Friday, June 11. For more information or to register, visit sjycaz.com.
