The American Camp Association identifies many benefits to working at camp.  “Camp jobs offer invaluable skill-building, leadership, training, and enrichment opportunities that can’t be found anywhere else!  Regardless of your college major, camp experiences allow you to learn and develop skills that will enhance your job marketability.  The benefits go far beyond a paycheck, too.  Business executives often note that experience as a camp counselor translates into excellent management and personnel skills.”

Working at a camp builds communication skills and confidence, which go a long way in other areas of life.  Counselors communicate with different personality types, adapt to other’s needs, and problem-solve every day.  Nothing builds confidence like singing and dancing in front of hundreds at camp.  If you can do that, it’s a snap giving a presentation to a room full of people!
