Team Leader/ Counselor
One of the things that is unique to Camp Mack is the significant number of volunteer leaders that serve during the summer in camp leadership. Camp Mack is always looking for qualified leaders to help facilitate this program. While the average age of the Team Leader or Counselor is over 30, persons as young as 18 can serve as a Team Leader or Counselor. While age is significant in determining readiness for leadership at Camp Mack, perhaps more significant is the example of Christian values demonstrated by the individual who is leading. You are invited to consider the role that you might play in the life of a child this summer. Apply today.
