Camp Tapawingo

Landsports + Senior Bunk Counselor

June - August 2021 • Sweden, ME

What I liked

Tapawingo has a strong community that makes you feel at home no matter how far from home you are. Camp Tap is a positive work environment. While here you'll receive progress reports throughout the summer with an evaluation of your performance. The staff is friendly and willing to assist you in whatever capacity necessary. Meg the Landsports Head is the most caring and energetic person you'll ever meet. This experience taught me how to roll with the punches, while improving my delegation and teamwork skills. Through my coaching internship I had the opportunity to coach/teach kids in multiple sports through competitions and practices. I was also given the freedom to create and execute an internship project where I put on the first ever "Tap Olympics." If you're looking for an opportunity to make an impact on children, be in a setting that is one with nature, to work with the most genuine and compassionate people, and have an experience you will never forget, Camp Tapawingo is the place for you.

What I wish was different

Tapawingo has room for improvement through their communication skills.

Advice

This experience is emotionally and physically exhausting but also one of the most rewarding things you'll ever do. If you're up for the challenge apply to Camp Tapawingo, you won't regret it.

Bunk counselor and swim instructor

June - August 2021 • Sweden, ME

What I liked

I loved how open and accepting everyone at camp was. There was always somebody willing to help you out or a shoulder to lean on if you needed. The people at this camp is really what makes it so great.

What I wish was different

Sometimes camp wasn’t the best at communicating information but everything always worked out just fine

Advice

You get as much out of this job as you put into it. My summer was so much fun because I spent my free time participating in other department activities and fully embraced all of camps traditions.

What I liked

The community at this camp is strong. I truly felt like a member of the family and supported by everyone I worked with. I could tell they wanted me to succeed.

Advice

Go all in and fully commit to the experience. If you're scared to be yourself or to be silly, the two months won't be as much fun.
