A Volunteer Camp Counselor Program
Leaders in Training
Procter is a camp and conference center in Madison County, about 30 miles south of Columbus, Ohio. Our site includes a reflection pond, lake, pool, hiking trails, and a woodland area. In the summers, we host hundreds of campers in grades first through twelfth. In addition, Procter Center Farm provides food for our Dining Hall, an education site for our guests, and food to our community.
Each summer, we hire Kitchen & Housekeeping, Farmers, Groundskeepers, Camp Counselors, Lifeguards, and Camp Nurses. All of our staff serve as leaders and mentors to our campers, guests, and customers. Being a part of our staff means working hard and having a ton of fun.
To support our programs and ensure that each child gets the attention he/she/they deserves, we ask teens to be a part of our LIT Program – Leaders in Training! LITs spend the day right along side the kids, playing games, doing arts and crafts, canoeing, fishing and more! A LITs job is to make the campers’ experience even more special and safe while gaining experience in organizational leadership, customer relations, family services, interpersonal communication, and outdoor recreation. Volunteer for a week, a month, or all summer long! We provide initial training and program oversite.
Procter Center is owned and operated by the Episcopal Diocese of Southern Ohio, so part of the programming that occurs on-site is discussing faith and what that looks like in the 21st century. People from all faith backgrounds are encouraged to apply.

Procter is a great place to get away from everyday life. I stayed in one of the cabins where there are 4 rooms with 2 sets of bunk beds. The cabin also had A/C, showers, a bathroom, a kitchen, and a living room area furnished with a couch. The cabins are a short walk away from the dining and conference hall or the lake.
The staff was very welcoming and I even had the opportunity to visit with some of the summer farm staff! It was great talking to Procter’s farm manager, Danielle, who told me that the farm uses sustainable practices: pasture-raised pork and chicken, free-range egg layers, and crops are grown using organic methods. She was happy to sell me some bratwurst and my roommate and I enjoyed them that night!
In between my work sessions, I had a wonderful time wandering around Procter’s pond and visiting with the pigs and chickens.
