For girls entering 10th grade to seniors in college

Dear parents and applicants, 

A Pathfinder counselor is given great responsibility since they are directly caring for 5-9th grade campers at an overnight camp. They are also tasked with giving catechism and virtue classes as well as being a lively Christian role model for their younger campers and peers.


Because of the demands required of them, a Pathfinder counselor should be well known by the staff at Aster Study Center. Due to the high volume of applicants we have low acceptance rate and encourage you to check out our other summer leadership programs. Applications for these programs will be open in January.
