There’s a lot we chase after in life, whether we intend to or we are influenced by society. We miss a lot of what life is meant to be when we narrow our mindset to society’s ideal life: go to school, work hard, get a job and pay the bills. When really, life is more than that. American author Dan Millman says, “Life is a series of moments. The quality of attention and action that we bring to each moment determines the quality of our lives.”
Working at a camp allows you to create moments that contribute to a meaningful life. Every moment on the job makes you realize that what you’re doing isn’t merely a part of your job, but it’s more about building a life that matters, for you and for everyone you’re serving. Serving at camp helps you build friendships that last a lifetime, and for some people, they meet the love of their life while serving at camp. Why not spend at least a summer of your life serving at camp? You’ll find there are some lessons you’ll learn and memories that will be among your life’s greatest treasures.
