Campers who age out of our summer camp program may continue to attend Camp St. Charles through our Mentor program. Mentors are 14 and 15 year old former campers who have been selected to be Mentors through an application process. Each spring, we encourage first time mentors and their parents to attend the mentor orientation meeting.
Mentors may earn 86 hours of service hours during a two week session at Camp St. Charles. Mentors are encouraged to confirm with their school, prior to serving as a mentor, to ensure that the hours will be accepted. Mentors will receive a letter on check out day to document their service. We are happy to complete other paperwork that may be required.
Mentors meet regularly with the mentor program coordinator to gain skills for working with children, providing leadership and for support as they begin the transition from child toward young adult.
2nd year mentors do not need to reapply for the mentor program. Mentors who successfully completed service in 2016, are welcome to return for summer 2017. Former mentors who are 16 years old may wish to apply for a staff position at Camp St. Charles. Successful participation in the mentor program does not guarantee a future staff position.
Please mail complete mentor applications to Camp St. Charles Attn: Laura Hall P.O. Box 99 Issue MD 20645
First time Mentors are encouraged to attend the pre-summer meeting on Saturday, April 8, 2017 at 11am at Camp St. Charles. Please let us know that you will be joining us.
