The Camp Aide Experience

PART 1: Camp Aide Training

    This 2 day training is required to participate at COCUSA as a Camp Aide. We’ll have hands on training and lots of interactive workshops to help you practice leading different Camp activities alongside our summer staff. You’ll have a blast participating in your favorite Camp activities while learning what it takes to be a leader. Space at Camp Aide Training is limited to 12 students each session. Choose one of the options below for Camp Aide Training.

  • Session 1

    • Dates: May 31 - June 1
    • Location: Woodland Baptist Church (Peoria)
  • Session 2

    • Dates: June 5-6
    • Location: Grace Presbyterian Church (Peoria)
  • Session 3

    • Dates: June 7-8
    • Location: Oak Grove Bible Church (East Peoria)


   Those who complete Camp Aide Training will join us as a Camp Aide for two (2) weeks. As a Camp Aide, you’ll put what you learned into practice by assisting with a variety of activities, games, and crafts. You’ll also lend a hand preparing for activities, cleaning up, and completing other work projects determined by Camp directors. Each day will have time for you to focus on your relationship with God through reading the Bible and discussing it with a COCUSA staff member. Of course, you’ll still get to enjoy field trips, swimming, and other favorite Camp activities. The Camp Aide program will help you develop the skills you’ll need to be a great COCUSA staff member in the future.

    You will be signed up for two weeks as a Camp Aide when you register. After you complete your two weeks as a Camp Aide, you may request to serve additional weeks, but we’ll base our decision on your availability, our openings, and the quality of your work from your previous weeks.

Please contact us with any questions regarding our Camp Aide program.
