Being a Camp Counselor...
Is like no other job you’ll ever have. Every day will bring you wonderfully bizarre experiences and adventures. By the time you’re back, you’ll never be short of an interesting story to tell your mates. As a Counselor, you'll be living in a bunk with the campers and your role during the day will be split between leading activities you've highlighted in your application and supervising the campers as they move between activities. You may also find yourself assisting in other activities as part of your campers' daily schedule. Life at camp can be pretty hectic and the job is certainly a tough one. Not to worry though, it will be the funniest job you'll ever have.
What to Expect
Spending a lot of time with campers. That’s right, you’ll be waking up early and heading to bed late, surrounded by energetic and excitable children - it’s the hardest job you’ll ever love.
Gain as much experience working with children as possible. The more experience you have, the stronger your camp counselor application will be.
What Not to Expect
To stick solely to your skill area. If you’re hired as a sport coach, you’ll still be getting involved in fashion shows and supporting other teams when called upon. “That’s not my job” is not a phrase used at camp.
The opportunity to teach and get involved in a huge variety of summer camp activities. You’ll get the chance to try things you’ve never experienced before.
