Why Camp Is Super Awesome

Below are some visually stunning videos about camp. Because camp is, indeed, super awesome.

Disclaimer: So here is where a web site would normally place its testimonials. We’re not going to do that. We have literally tens of thousands of people that have experienced our camp over the years. Some great, some not-so-great. And we can cherry-pick a number of satisfaction quotes or camper videos that make camping look like butterflies and rainbows. If you are curious about hearing from actual campers and parents, please call us and we’ll give you some references to see if the camp counselor experience is right for you 🙂

So, what we will do is link a few neat visuals for you that are relatively universal in scope (because camp videos actually are quite enjoyable). You’ll literally be able to find hundreds of similar videos online. We invite you to take a moment to check out a few, then go outside and kick a soccer ball or go for a lovely hike. Then come back, and call a few camps 🙂

And here is an article about the value of experiential education, which is 95% of camp counseling. The other five percent is sleeping 😉

Disclaimer, Part Two: So in case you haven’t picked it up yet, every camp is different J The above videos are lovely, and they unfortunately do not show the “tough stuff” that many counselors don’t expect (because camp is always like singing songs and wakeboarding, right?). So take them with a grain of salt, and enjoy the montages. And of course, these moments do happen, many a time over the summer. So if you’re willing to balance these happy visuals with the complex myriad of needs and strategies of 100+ campers and a staff of 60 or more individuals from around the planet, apply today!!!!
