“Being a camp counselor is the hardest job that you will ever love. You’re going to bed exhausted every single night, but you’re so excited to wake up in the morning and do it all again! Every day is full of moments that foster positive relationships, laughter, and the biggest smiles you can possibly imagine.”

-Summer Counselor

A job, and especially one as a Summer Camp Counselor provides so much more. The American Camp Association agrees.
