Our trained counselors and staff will ensure your child has a great experience at ECC. 

One of the unique aspects of ECC is that our counseling staff is made up of young people who once attended ECC as campers themselves. Because of this system, each counselor has a deep understanding of the essence of our community, and their lives have been touched and changed by their own experience at camp. They are not only well-trained and able to provide excellent care to the children and teens who come to camp, but they are also able to welcome campers into the community in a loving and inclusive way – the way they were once welcomed themselves.

Other staff positions at ECC are often filled by former counselors, but we do accept applications from anyone interested. Candidates that would be considered for hire would need to have experience working with children and an understanding of the importance of Christian community. Contact the director at director@eccri.org to talk about staffing possibilities.

Junior Counselors and Counselors

After completing their training summer, CITs are then welcome to apply to be Junior Counselors. Junior Counselors rotate through our City Camp program every 2 weeks giving them an unforgettable experience. Junior Counselors can apply to be Counselors. As a result, the counselors who lead cabins have two full years of experience behind them before being responsible for a group of campers.
