There will be COVID-19 Protocols to protect all the campers and staff at Rock Springs. The first protocol is the number of campers we can bring will be limited from the past. That way we can make sure everyone has plenty of space to practice social distancing. Because of this we are opening registration for camp on April 15th It will be first come first serve. You will use the registration link to fill in your camper’s information; you will either get directed to Camp Doc where you will pay and register your camper or you will get your information put on a waiting list. The camper’s spot will not be secured until payment is received.  All the counties that camp with Oz-Some will have access to registration at the same time.

Camp Counselors

Do you enjoy kids, have lots of energy, and like the outdoors?!  Apply to be a camp counselor! Teams of 2 counselors are responsible for a group of 8 campers 24/7 during camp.  You and your co-counselor will be responsible for getting your group to the activities, encouraging them to try new things, helping them experience all that camp has to offer, and be a young adult role model.

Counselors are required to attend training the day before camp begins. Counselors must be at least 14 by the time of camp. 

Camp Counselor applications are due April 15th (or as soon as you fill it out! Don't wait until the last minute!)

You can co-counsel with a friend or if you don't have someone in mind, we will pair you up with someone from another county so you can make more friends!!

Adult Volunteer Helper

Extra adults are usually needed at camp. Duties include: helping with a variety of camp activities, assisting in classes, helping in the dining hall, etc. Adults will help supervise a cabin and assist counselors as needed. One half of the camp registration fee is provided if you are selected to help. Adults will go to and from camp the same time as campers.
