What are the responsibilities of a Junior Counselor?
- Classroom and instruction assistance
- Cabin duties such as wake-up call and nighttime supervision
- Kitchen assistance
- Camp physical improvements
While at camp, even during their recreational and free time, JCs represent the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department.
JCs are nominated by GMCC staff during Advanced Weeks. Written letters for application to the program are no longer accepted.
