General Counselor Jobs are the most common at camp. They don’t require any qualifications, you just get to enjoy all the activities at camp. You’ll be helping a group of campers learn new skills and overcome challenges. That means you may even learn a thing or two yourself! Camp counselors are able to get involved with lots of different camp activities while leading their campers. This could include sports such as hockey or soccer and arts and crafts like ceramics and fine art. Being a camp counselor is all about having a fun and rewarding summer experience.
Working as a Camp Counselor is none-stop fun! You and your campers will create amazing memories together throughout the summer. Not only will you have the chance to experience the very best camp has to offer but you’ll also experience amazing day trips. From theme parks to days at the beach, no day at the camp is ever the same!
A typical day at camp would involve getting up bright and early in the morning with your campers for breakfast and flag raising. You would then head to your first activity of the day and then lunch at mid-day. Afterwards, your next activity sessions will begin as well as a mid-afternoon snack! Evenings are for dinner time and scheduled evening activities. This could be your traditional campfire or a weekly showcase of films, theatre and camp awards.
Remember, summer camp isn’t all work! You’ll be spending plenty of time around the campfire and enjoying traditional camp food. You can expect days off in the week where you will be able to explore the local area or even do a day trip a little further out of town.
