CRITFC Salmon Camp Jr Counselor Application

The success of Salmon Camp depends on great people who are committed to and enjoy working with kids. The Junior Counselors are Yakama, Umatilla, Warm Springs, or Nez Perce youth who are incoming 9-12 graders or who graduated high school this spring (ages 16-18). The junior counselors help the camp counselors with Salmon Camp and get an opportunity to gain leadership and mentoring experience.

Application must be received by June 24, 2022 for consideration.

Camp Conditions

Salmon Camp is a five-day/four-night camp. The weather will be hot and sunny during the day, and possibly chilly at night. It is strongly suggested that students leave all valuables at home (video games or other electronic devices, money, jewelry, etc.). CRITFC is not responsible for any lost, damaged, or stolen property. There is cell phone service in the camp, but phones will be stored by the camp coordinator outside of limited daily screen time periods.


It is the responsibility of the parents or guardians of camp attendees to get their child to and from the designated check-in and pick-up locations. Details and locations will be provided to junior counselors upon selection.
