Counselors assigned to Week 1 will attend training on July 6th, 2024. Arrival time is TBD in the afternoon.

Most counselors are 14 years old by July 1. Counselors will need to provide their own transportation to and from Camp SOAR. Everyone must have received a tetanus shot no earlier than 2013, often referred to as TDap or DTaP on most immunization records.
Throughout training, counselors will learn about a day at camp, proactive and some reactive stratgies for behaviors, communication skills, and ways to form connections with fellow counseors and campers. Training day provides a chance to meet all of your wonderful fellow counselors who help make Camp SOAR such a terrific experience for everyone: campers, counselors, and staff.
