Junior Counselors assist each counselor in leading a group of 16 children of the same sex and age. These 16 campers remain together for the full session and you will be "their JC". This continuity allows you to learn and address the strengths and weaknesses of each child and helps build those strong social bonds that will make camp so memorable for your campers.
