Camp Counselor Selection Night is for 4-H youth who have submitted a 2016 Camp Counselor Application by November 15 and have not previously served in the Counselor/Counselor in Training role. Applicants must attend Counselor Selection Night to be eligible to be a counselor in 2016. No make-up opportunities are available.

All candidates will be randomly assigned to small groups and participate in six stations to assess their skills related to camp counseling. The stations include:
• A teaching activity
• A group challenge
• A decision-making exercise
• A team theme building activity
• A written test
• A group interview

Each station will have a qualified facilitator who will rate each applicant. Participants should dress like they would for a job interview. Selection will be based on selection night performance, the application and references.
