What does “between the ages of 16 and 20” mean?

I’m applying for a camp counselor position for a summer camp where I live, and it says that interested applicants must be between 16 and 20 to apply. Does that mean only people who are 17-19 years old can apply to be a counselor? I’m 20 years old, by the way.
English is not my first language (Vietnamese is), so please excuse me if I don’t know what that phrase means.

    You can be 16, 17, 18, 19 or 20 to apply.

    When it says “between” like that, it means starting @ 16 up until 20.

    You’re good to go…

    It could mean 17 to 19 years old, but more often in includes the years stated, so that it would be people 16, 17, 18, 19, OR 20 years old.

    Since whether or not you can work at that camp depends on the interpretation of that phrase, it would be best to ASK the camp management if 20-year-olds are eligible. Making the application will be a waste of time if it turns out you aren’t eligible to begin with.
