“Why I Like Working with Campers” – By Ambher Casebolt, 2009 counselor, Florida.
From the start of opening day, you quickly realize that every camper has a different personality. Getting to know each and every one of them and experiencing camp with them not only impacts my life but I hope theirs as well. As a counselor, it is our responsibility to make sure the campers are having the best time possible here at camp. This might consist of going crazy at an ’80’s dance, racing them on the moon bounce at the Wild West Carnival, or dressing up for Medieval Restaurant Night! Participating in theme events is all part of the camp experience and the girls seem to really enjoy dressing up. All of these reasons are why I love working with campers. It is the fact that you never know what might happen from day to day and that’s what makes it exciting!
