Pros: they cover food, housing, and clothes.
Cons: the only thing in town to do on our nights off was a bar, and 90% of the employees were under 21. the pay was terrible, it was more for the experience
*lived and took care of 19 13-year-olds with 3 other counselors
*I learned to handle conflict and to have grace with myself when you are working 24/7 you can't say the right thing at the right time every moment
*my co-workers were awesome and very culturally diverse. A large portion of them came from overseas that I am still friends with today!
* The – more... hardest part of the job was the constant fear of being fired. My campers made jokes that they love to get their counselors fired and seeing almost 15 counselors fired during the summer had us all on edge.
* Most enjoyable was my girls. It wasn't love at first sight, we struggled at times for the authority. But after a while they started listening and we started bonding. Now I make friendship bracelets like a pro. – less
