Counselors are young adults who exhibit and articulate a genuine, active life of faith. With their enthusiasm to know and share Christ, counselors are role models who invite campers to dive deeper into their faith. Daily prayer, reflection and study are key in helping to develop excellent camp programs.
Counselors exhibit savvy leadership. Hearing and valuing the input of others, they make thoughtful decisions that maximize the fun and learning opportunities at camp. Many counselors come to the team with experience in faith formation, teaching, outdoor activity skills and/or leadership experience from their academic pursuits.
Counselors connect with each other in their shared service to campers and time off from camp is “Montana Amazing”. They are hiking Glacier National Park, whitewater rafting, sampling local huckleberry ice cream and fostering connections that endure.
“Getting to live in community you really become like a family. It helps in the work as you kind of become a well oiled machine. We would also go on adventures together on our time off, or even just hang out around the campfire. I still spend time with fellow counselors that I go to Carroll College with and keep in touch with others. it’s a great way to form new friendships.”

Volunteering at Legendary Lodge summer camp is a great way to serve young people and grow in your faith. Volunteers are a critical part of camp as we believe in connecting campers with caring adults to walk with them on their journey. This informs the main role of a volunteer, which is to accompany our campers through the camp week, joining them in their activities, play, small group discussions, and prayer experiences. Volunteers are also asked to assist paid staff in some of the general tasks which help camp continue to run smoothly.
