Working as a Cooking Specialist at Summer Camp is one of the best ways to spend a Summer.
It’ll mean you’ll spend the summer teaching children how to cook and bake, and you’ll make a lot of fun memories.
After cooking up a storm in the kitchen, you’ll be able to get stuck into all the fun that camp and America has to offer.
Nicole, today’s Guest Blogger, talks us through her experience as a Head of Cooking and her favourite camp memories.
I was offered a job as a Cooking Specialist at Summer Camp and also got the Head of Cooking role too.
Before I started, I felt pretty nervous, but I felt ready for the challenge too. I was pretty shocked though!
However, as soon as I arrived at Summer Camp, that all went away. I knew I’d leave with a completely different outlook on life than I had when I went in.
Camp changes you as a person and it brings the best out of you. It shows you how living in the moment can make you a better person.
I taught about four lessons a day as a Camp Cooking Specialist so it was busy, but it was fun!
Most of my time was spent teaching and making the treats with the campers, but there was so much more to camp too.
We made brownies, cakes, cookies, and traditional camp food like S’mores tray bakes. You just can’t go through camp without having S’mores!
Some of my favourite memories from camp were made in the kitchen with the other staff and the campers.
Two of my girls helped me tidy up my kitchen in their free time and showed me the little things really matter.
I didn’t expect the youngest campers to get so involved, but they loved whisking the chocolate cake mix.
Working as a Cooking Specialist at Summer Camp means I spent a lot of time in the kitchen, but I did plenty outside it too.
Even as a Cooking Specialist, I got involved with lots of other camp activities so my camp experience wasn’t restricted.
I got to get involved with Colour Run, and I married my camp bestie at the Camp Carnival, which was fun!
Most importantly for me, I got to spend the summer with the most amazing kids and staff.
If you’re debating going to Summer Camp, no matter the role, I think you should take the leap and go!
