Pros: free breakfest lunch and dinner, free home
Cons: there wasn't any cons. i actually loved this job
Well to began there were a lot of kids from different places. Some had different personality's and different attitudes. I didn't know what to expect but I was ready. When the kids got there they were so attach to me. That was a good things, because i didn't want to be the one who got my head chewed off by the kids. So when the next day came the kids – more... started to poor there problems out to me, and i was the listening ear. There wasn't really anything that was hard about the job. The job was enjoyable and it was a good experience for me because i never been camping or even a counselor. I learned a lot with being at the camp. I learned that people can have a big smile on the outside but on the inside there is hurt, and pain. My coworkers and manger was awesome they gave me everything I needed when I asked and we all got along. – less
