Brethren Woods has a Jr. Staff program for 15-17 year olds to work at leadership development, one part of our camp mission.

Past Jr. Staff have had an incredible experience and played a vital role in the success of each summer.

Plus, we offer Jr. Staff a 50% discount off any of our Senior High Camps, so you can still spend a week as a camper too!
