Our Extended Family

We believe that meaningful relationships are the most important tool we have in shaping lives for and by Christ.

It is within the one-on-one friendships and interactions with their counselors that campers are able to see and witness the tangible love of Jesus.  Our counselors come alongside campers to listen, mentor and model what it looks like to passionately follow Jesus Christ.  These authentic relationships, set in the unique and fun context of camp, creates an environment ripe for life-changing experiences.

Only Girls!

Mt. Gilead hires an all-female staff to run its summer camp program. The minimum requirement for working as a first-year counselor at Mt. Gilead is to have your freshman year of College completed. The exception to this rule will be our senior high school age staff who have graduated our two-year Leadership Training Program who may serve as co-counselors in-training for some of our youngest campers.

Most of our summer camp staff are former campers, and 90% or more of our annual summer staff are returning employees.
