What makes being a C5 Texas camp counselor unique from any other camp counselor position?
"We get to help the campers grow in several different aspects of their lives; as we, the counselors also grow. We not only help the campers grow into amazing leaders, but we also get the opportunity to nurture their physical, mental, emotional and spiritual life."
- Toya Glen: C5 Counselor, Team Leader
"Because it is a five-year program, and you continue to see the teens each year, the relationships are stronger between camper and counselor."
- Rudy Pecina: C5 counselor
"As a C5 counselor, you are given the opportunity to work with teens and help them meet and exceed expectations and go beyond to accomplish their goals."
- Andrew Head: C5 counselor,Trek Coordinator
"As a counselor and camper, the challenge is mutual. The growth is mutual. The success is mutual. The life-changing experience...priceless."
