Camp Courage Junior Counselor Application
The Junior Counselor program is for teens 16-18 years old who would like to further enhance their leadership skills by learning what it’s like to be a camp counselor.
Please read the following information carefully:
The Application deadline is March 1st, 2020. All parts of the application, including at least two references, must be received by this date.

Placement in the program is based on qualifications and is at the discretion of the Camp Directors. Junior Counselors can receive community service hours.
Camp Courage is not a “cancer camp” where cancer is the focus; it’s a place where kids can be kids. Yes, they share this unfortunate disease, but that’s not what defines them, and it’s not what defines Camp Courage. We put cancer on the back burner, immersing kids in a week of outdoor adventures and fun. Activities include fishing in an on-site pond, a zip-line, the Big Swing, high ropes course, archery, boating, camp crafts, and hiking. Camp Courage is housed at the Balarat Outdoor Education Center near Jamestown Colorado, about 50 miles northwest of Denver.
