Summer Camp Kateri Counselor
Counselor (Former Employee) – Camp Kateri – February 8, 2019
It was somewhat low pay for a lot of work. Though part of your pay while working at Kateri was deducted for food and lodging. It's very fast paced and there's likely new management for the new season coming in so there's some uncertainty on how the camp will be run. You and the other counselors *need* to get along or else things will quickly fall apart. Kateri is an overnight week long camp in the woods with very little phone service, if you don't like your co-workers, things can turn sour and tense which poses a negative influence on the girls. For people who work well with others and are patient and kind but not a doormat with children, this could be a very good and fulfilling job for you, especially if you like the outdoors. You are also given the open to take a free class to be certified in CPR, AED, Lifeguarding, and waterfront kayak and canoeing which can be applied elsewhere in life. In addition, if you're a good friendship fit with your co-counselors, you will have long lasting friends. Days are long and hard with only 2 hour breaks during the day (though you get your own cabin/room with the other counselors at night), but it could be a fulfilling job for you if it seems like a good fit.
