Counselor Training Week Key To Ci Success

It’s not just our teachers who train to serve at Ci. Our counselors all go through an intense week of training, equipping them to serve our campers, answering their questions, and directing them toward Christ and His Word. Here’s what one of our counselors, Brook, had to say about this week, as well as her experience as a counselor (content slightly edited for clarity): 

Throughout the 2 1/2 weeks I felt as though I gained valuable communication skills. The comradery and encouragement with the group was incredible, proving that a group from so many different backgrounds could have a common passion. The week of training, especially, improved my communication skills with my peers, and those in authority over me. I greatly enjoyed being able to cultivate relationships with people around my age who share some of my own interests… 

I would share my experience with such an incredible group, and how much I grew mentally and spiritually. The whole experience was challenging with the long hours and occasionally difficult campers. The group of counselors provided encouragement and laughs when it was needed. You’ll drag yourself into bed and sleep like a baby when you get home but be grateful for every second you spent with an amazing group of people doing what you all love. 

Before coming to Camp Infinity, I was nervous and unsure of what college life would bring. After growing closer to several college students who love the Lord, I was at peace with whatever the Lord still has in store for me. My experience at Camp Infinity grew my love for the Lord, and patience to see what He has for me to learn. 

We are recruiting for Ci 6.0 now. If you know anyone studying or working in a STEM field who would be interested in serving our campers, please direct them to CampInfinity.com/interest.
