7 Reasons Everyone Should Be a Camp Counselor

Spending a summer as a Camp counselor could be one of the greatest experiences of your life. Here’s why:

What do you have planned for this summer? If you have ever been to a summer camp of any kind, you probably remember those fun counselors you had keeping you entertained, but enforced the rules. Here are our top 10 reasons why everyone should be a Camp Counselor:

1. Getting Outdoors
You know how to get amazing Instagram photos? By getting outdoors! Every day you are up at Camp you get to enjoy the fresh mountain air. What other job lets you do that?

2. Building a Camp Family
Friendships that will last your entire life are hard to come-by. Not when you spend every day and night with the same group of people for three months. There is a connection made between Camp staff that can’t be broken.

3. Camp Songs Last Forever
“This is the song that never ends! It goes on and on my friend!”  With no radio being played all day, you will quickly become the Justin Bieber of Camp with the songs you’ll sing day-in and day-out.

4. Become a Responsible Leader
Whether you like to be a leader or not, people will look up to you. At the end of each day, you are still responsible for making Camp a lasting memory for dozens of campers each week!

5. Get Paid to Play
Hiking, archery, swimming, fishing, and more! You literally get paid to entertain campers and put your skills to the test. Probably the only job you will ever have that encourages you to act wild and yell at the top of your lungs.

6. Build Your Resume
Looking for a way to stand out to future employers? What better way than to show you gave up your summer to mentor campers!

7. Camp is Magic
Camp is a “Special Place for Special Campers.” There are many years of traditions and memories that can be felt from the moment you step foot on the grounds. The only place you truly feel like yourself and can be a kid again. In a sense…it’s Neverland.

If you feel like this is something you want to be a part of then apply to be a counselor or talk to Camp Ronald McDonald® at Eagle Lake to learn how you can help it continue. Watch this video below by ACA Camps and CEO, Tom Holland to learn more about the amazing opportunity it is to be a camp counselors!
