Camper Committee

Join the GCC Camper Committee!

If you are a junior or senior in high school and have attended at least one GCC session, you qualify to apply to be part of the 2023 GCC Camper Committee. As a member of the Camper Committee, you become an important part of guiding the future of camp through ideas and input - then helping make them a reality.

Camper Committee members work closely with GCC staff and directors to represent the collective camper voice, influencing a positive, inclusive culture at camp. Committee members will participate in leadership development, exciting aspects of camp planning (like helping design GCC merchandise!), and planning creative social media campaigns for GCC platforms. Members will also gain valuable experience in events, like working with the GCC staff to plan and volunteer at events.


Thank you to our 2022 Camp Committee members for their hard work!
