If you’re between the ages of 18-25, you’re probably asking some of the same life questions teens are asking. And your response might be, “Hold up. I already went through that phase.”
There is new research indicating emerging adults go through a similar identity exploration process, much like teens experience. “Emerging adulthood is proposed as a new conception of development for the period from the late teens through the twenties with a focus on ages 18-25.” It’s a time to reevaluate some of life’s big questions, such as “Who am I?,” “What decisions are mine to make?,” “Where and with whom do I fit in?,” and “What is my trusted source of truth?” 
Working at camp invites opportunities to answer those questions. With new experiences both learning and leading, rubbing elbows with coworkers from different walks of life, and doing work with a purpose, working at camp can be a significant contribution to this developmental stage of life. You’ll be surrounded by a community that supports you, and you’ll gain skills you can use the rest of your life.
Spending your summer in a camp setting isn’t just for teachers or those going into ministry. Whether you get to be a lifeguard, a videographer, wrangler or camp counselor, camp offers real-world experiences to help you develop as a leader.
