Selection Process

Working at Camp Araminta is an opportunity that you won't want to miss. But, with the fun and excitement of camp leadership we must also look out for the physical and spiritual safety of our campers. We take this responsibility seriously and this is reflected in our leader selection process.

LITs and Counselors will be selected based upon recommendations of their priest/youth leaders and provided references as well as prior experience and spiritual maturity. The Camp Araminta executive staff will carry out interviews with candidates and their references as well as performing a background check on each candidate over 18.
