Junior Counselor Leadership Camp
The expanded SCFK Jr. Counselor Program for children entering 7th and 8th grades provides campers the opportunity to learn all about Monroe Community College, while developing leadership skills with MCC Student Life and Leadership staff. Campers will participate as Jr. Counselors at the SCFK program part time while learning about what happens behind the scenes at MCC and exploring future career interests. Team building and self-exploration are the focus of the program.
