Why Being A Camp Counselor Is The Best Job

Samantha Murray 7/16/2021

Being a camp counselor has many benefits. Here is a very small list of the amazing things I get to experience every day.

You get to be active all day! I can say for myself that I don’t sit until the bus comes to pick us up. We’re “allergic to sitting”. You might think that’s horrible but honestly, you get used to it. Yes, I’m exhausted by the end of the day but it’s worth it.

Watching kids express themselves through art, sports, and all sorts of creative activities is the best feeling. It’s not every day that you can inspire a kid to get creative.

You’re in nature ALL the time!! My camp is located in a state park. It’s filled with trees, rocks, and all kinds of nature. I walk my 4 and 5-year-old campers around all day. There are so many things they can fall and trip on, but camp has taught me to let kids be kids. They fall? It’s okay, they get right back up again. Failing makes us who we are.

Being a camp counselor teaches you patience (it sure does) in the best way possible. You learn how to work with other people. My co-counselors are some of the best people I’ve ever met. And finally, you get to be human for a whole summer. No stress – just fun.
