Rewarding employment with valuable life experiences
Camp Counselor/Day Camp Director (Volt alkalmazott) – Silver Springs, NY – 2018, január 15.
Every day would run off the same schedule, including flag raising before breakfast, multiple games and activities before lunch, with a rest period after lunch, followed by more games and activities until dinner, and finally one camp wide game before an evening campfire before bed. Each counselor would be responsible of a cabin of campers with a co-counselor. Each counselor was responsible for getting to events/meals on a timely matter, keeping up with the well-being and health of each camper, as well as setting up activities and games and running these events. Creativity and a friendly personality were essential to being a successful counselor. As for Day Camp Director, I was in charge of the entire Day Camp program, including a weekly plan of activities for the campers, keeping up with the well-being and health of each camper, keeping a rapport with the parents of campers, and collecting and managing money for the program, as well as keeping up with payments and making calls or notices for parents when they owe money.
Valuable learning lessons, work was more rewarding than pay
