our counselors


Our Summer team consists of resident Bible School staff and seasonal volunteers. The majority of our volunteers have attended our nine-month Bible School program or one of the affiliated Torchbearers International schools, and are personally known to us. All of our team members desire to share Christ's life and have demonstrated a love for our Lord Jesus Christ in accordance with God's Word. Each Staff member must have a completed background check and references before being accepted. Every summer, parents identify our staff as His Hill Ranch Camp's greatest asset. A two-week training period is designed for our summer staff to become educated in camp policies and prepare them for the challenges and opportunities of our camp ministry.
