4-H Camp may be one of the first jobs many of our employees ever have. Working at camp is a job that is not only fun, but very rewarding. At the end of the season, our workers leave with a skill set that can help them in the future, no matter what their future career field may be.
As they help campers navigate through many different activities, our employee’s fine tune their leadership skills. They become encouragers who help dissolve campers’ fears of trying new things or being away from home for the first time. In the process, they gain confidence in themselves and their ability to lead others.
