We have created a Leadership Program for Kingston’s Campers that want to stay at camp, and eventually become camp counselors or lifeguards. This is for campers entering 7th grade to 9th grade (13 to 15) and must be 13 by the first day of camp. This program is entered by invitation only.
Gophers are given more responsibility and some basic chores. They spend their days team-building, maintaining camp, learning about teaching games and activities, along with expected behavior around younger children. They also create great camp crafts and lead games (toward the end of the time they are there).
Because they are interacting with the campers thoughout the day they enhance our games and activities to a creative and fun level.
Gophers must attend an all camp training day, and come for a minimum of 3 full weeks. Because this is a Leadership Program and Gophers are role models, they must sign a behavioral contract and adhere to it.
If you received our invitation e-mail you can sign in to our Registration Software and either register and sign the invitation form online or download the Gopher Registration 2016 & Gopher invite 16 to send in by mail. After you accept our invitation, we will send you the procedures for registering in the Gopher Program.
Replies to Invitations to become a Gopher will not be accepted after June 1, 2016.
