Loved volunteering at Girl Scout camp
It was great getting to know the girls and I worked with units and centers at the camp. I volunteered for a few different years and had alot of fun. We had groups of 15 or so girls who we would escort through the centers and entertain in between. The hardest part of this was the heat.

Good Place for Camps
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.
Pros
Free Soda, nice people
Cons
Always busy, no air conditioning, possibly difficult environment

Exciting and challenging workplace
When I made it up to the Cadette level in Girl Scouts I had gained extensive experience in leading activities. The various volunteer trips such as Cape Henlopen Clean Up and parades improved my leadership skills. The management was excellent since for each event I was properly trained and prepared. My coworkers were very hardworking and down-to-earth. The hardest part of the job was not seeing the outcome of projects soon. The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing that I was making an difference.
Pros
Presented me with various challenges that helped me grow as a person
Cons
Unpaid
