Counselors Make the Camp!

Join the Junior Leader team at Camp Rocky

Junior leaders (JLs) are volunteer staff members who are passionate about resource conservation and creating a fun and engaging camp environment. Our facility is truly a hidden gem in the Colorado Mountains, surrounded by examples of all of Colorado's natural landscapes with great access to hiking, fields and courts for all types of sports and traditional camp games, and a fantastic kitchen team who keep us well fed.
