Summer Camp Councelor

July - August 2018 • Winchester, NH

What I liked

I absolutely loved being able to learn what it’s like to be a councelor from the ground up, as it was my first time ever going to a summer camp in general. Everyone was so friendly and happy to be there, and I couldn’t be done it without their support and lessons!

What I wish was different

While I made some learning mistakes there from it being my first time, I wouldn’t have changed a thing. I appreciate everything I did and learned there.

Advice

Have a growth mindset. Always have the motivation to learn and grow with not only your fellow staff, but also with the kids, and that goes for any career and position.
