We get it. You sometimes hear it from your friends or relatives. Being a camp counselor can have the connotation of being a “summer off” from preparing for the “real world.” But as we all know, it’s the lessons learned at camp that are some of the most powerful in our day-to-day lives. In this role of responsibility, the challenges faced and experiences gained provide skills and confidence that are applicable not only in daily life, but in any field or industry. Remember: Every summer, parents trust you with their most valuable possessions: their kids!
