You could spend the summer sending emails or you could send kids soaring on a blob. You could make a coffee run for your supervisor or you could run an afternoon rec session.
Spending your summer at camp is a win-win for you and executive camp directors. Here’s why it will benefit you both.
As a student, you’re looking to try out your leadership skills—you know, to see if you’ve got the chops to get a job done. In college, it may feel like listening to lectures and note-taking are your primary pastimes, but you’re ready for the hands-on experience. Camp is a safe environment to learn new skills and to obtain a resume-worthy work history. You’ll work with peers who are learning and growing alongside you, have caring supervisors who want you to succeed and gain experience that can apply to any job you take in the future.
The benefit to the executive director and their leadership team is knowing they have trusted employees for the summer who have a desire to make a worthwhile contribution. They’re looking for camp counselors, wranglers, high ropes instructors and media staff who can serve with a good attitude and a willingness to grow. They’re hiring young leaders who want a sense of purpose in their work.
