Behind the Scenes: A Day in the Life of a Camp Counselor


Ever wondered what it's like to be a camp counselor? Join us as we take a peek behind the scenes and explore a typical day in the life of a camp counselor at our summer camp program:

- Morning Routine: Camp counselors start their day early, gathering for a team meeting to review the day's schedule, discuss any updates, and coordinate responsibilities for activities, meals, and camper supervision.

- Camper Check-In: Counselors greet campers as they arrive, assist with registration, introduce themselves, and help settle campers into their cabins, providing a warm and welcoming atmosphere to ease any nerves or uncertainties.

- Activity Planning: Counselors lead group activities, facilitate games, supervise outings, and provide guidance and encouragement to campers throughout the day, ensuring safety, engagement, and positive interactions among campers.

- Mealtime Supervision: Counselors oversee mealtime routines, promote healthy eating habits, encourage conversation, and model good manners and table etiquette while fostering a sense of community and camaraderie among campers.

- Evening Reflection: Counselors gather for debrief sessions to reflect on the day's events, share observations, discuss challenges, celebrate successes, and prepare for the next day, fostering teamwork, communication, and continuous improvement among the staff.


Being a camp counselor is a rewarding and dynamic role that requires patience, creativity, flexibility, and genuine care for the well-being and growth of campers, creating meaningful connections and impactful experiences that shape each camper's summer adventure.
