Senior counselors are adult male leaders of cabins and crafts at camp. We take extra care in selecting our counselors and other staff at Ohio Brigade Camp. Many of the staff members have served at camp for many years in the past and have an excellent track record for being responsible, honest, and caring. All senior staff come with a recommendation from their church leaders. We also run a background check on all leaders to ensure the safety of our campers.
Junior counselors are high school age males who assist the senior staff during our Stockade and Tree Climber (grades 3-6) weeks, helping to lead the cabins and crafts and run daily activities. All junior counselors come highly recommended by their church and school leaders. Additionally, our junior counselors go through a week of intense training to ensure they have what it takes to best serve the campers.
