Until Camp Starts!

Mentor Program

Campers who age out of our typical summer camp program may continue to attend Camp St. Charles through our Mentor program. Mentors are 14 and 15 year old former Camp St. Charles campers who have been selected to be Mentors through an application process.


Returning 14 and 15 year old campers may only attend Camp St. Charles by participating in the Mentor program. 


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 are encouraged to bring required forms to check out day.


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. Mentors may also assist with clean up, food preparation and other tasks that we also rely on camp staff to assist with during the summer season.


2nd time mentors do not need to reapply for the mentor program. Mentors who successfully completed one season, are welcome to return for next summer. 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, nor is it required for employment. The junior counselor program application process is highly competitive, especially for female applicants, so junior counselor hopefuls should complete their staff application documents and submit them by Jan 1 or earlier.  Interviews will continue until all positions are filled and interviews will not be scheduled without a complete application.


We will be hosting zoom meetings for Mentors! Mentors and their parents are encouraged to attend. 

First time and returning mentors are encouraged to attend the zoom meeting. Meeting details will be shared with enrolled mentors, we typically host the mentor zoom in late April.

The mentor application and a minimum of 2 references are due by Nov 1, 2023. 


All of the mentor forms linked below will be accessed via a parent's camp registration program. For each reference, provide a name and email and the reference link will be sent directly to the reference. Parents will receive confirmation when a reference is completed. Two references are required, we provide 3 requests in case a reference is too busy to complete the reference in a timely manner. We recommend emailing the references directly to alert them to the request, which may be misdirected to a spam folder.
