I know a lot of people have left, but I was still hoping to get some advice on this. Basically, I need to get some kind of a job this summer, and being a camp counselor seemed like the best choice; I know how to do outdoorsy stuff, and it would be nice to get the hell out of my town for a while. It seems better than working at Walmart or somewhere comparable, at least. I used to hate the thought of working with kids, but now the thought doesn't bug me for some reason, so I guess that's a good sign. The only caveat about doing this is that I'm (hopefully) going to be doing an archaeological field school that would take up most of June, and it seems like most camps don't hire after that, but I don't know how much of an issue that'll be; if I remember right, someone on this board got a job at a camp halfway through the summer last year and was excited about it.
Anyway, does anyone have any stories about working at a camp? Is it good? Bad? Anyone have tips for getting a job at one? Or not getting murdered by a crazy woman looking for revenge?
