Welcome! We are so excited that you’re interested in the position of Camp Longleaf counselor!
Spending a portion of your summer as a counselor is a great opportunity to gain work experience and valuable skills all while enjoying our beautiful pine forest in the heart of the Emerald Coast. As a counselor, you will live in the cabins with campers and help foster an environment at camp that inspires campers to get out of their comfort zone, develop new skills, gain self-confidence, and create lifelong friendships.
The ideal counselor will be at least 18 years old, have experience working with children, a positive attitude, and an appreciation of the natural world. College students are encouraged to apply. Our counselors are required to pass a background check and complete First Aid/CPR Certification (offered during summer counselor training before camp is in session). A full job description can be found in the Counselor Application below.
"Spending this month at Camp Longleaf has been one of the best experiences of my life. Even through the early morning and late night exhaustion it was 100% worth it."
-Loblolly Laura, Camp Longleaf Counselor 2019
