I was a volunteer Camp Counselor. Typical days working for the Girl Scouts depended on what camp I was working with, because each camp is different. But usually I would find my campers and look after them. I really liked being a camp counselor, I think i learned more from the Girl Scouts than any other organization in my life. I love taking care of people and Girl Scouts gave me an outlet to do that for a large portion of my life. I worked as a camp counselor for five years and I loved it, it was great. The management was not great, they would control parts of camp that made our lives more difficult and made camp harder for everyone. There was always a great workplace culture, everyone respected everyone else. The best part of the job was probably the friends I made while I was a counselor, and watching my campers grow up over the years. The hardest part of the job was one day where the heat index got over 100 degrees and I had to skip lunch because we were so busy.
