What other Camp Counselors have to say

"Working at camp is one of the most demanding jobs I think I may ever have, but it’s also the most rewarding job I think I may ever have. Not only are the friendships with other staff members special, but the bonds and relationships that can be built with campers (and their siblings, and families, even) is something I’ll always cherish. I got to witness the growth in several kids, but the coolest part about witnessing that growth, is being able to know that I played a small part in that growth."
