Camp counselors have to wear a lot of hats. They lead campers throughout their week and in spiritual guidance; they console kids who are lonely and homesick; they help plan and implement a lot of the great camp activities; and when there’s a need for it, they help with a few housekeeping tasks now and again. It’s a job that contains much more variety than almost anything else you can find. You’re always on your feet, always learning, often laughing, and never bored. It’s an ideal job for a lot of people, and it’s up to you to apply!
