There are 3 main age groups at camp – Juniors, Middlers and Seniors. Juniors are 6 to 10 years old. Camp is sooooo magical to them. They love to play in the creek, be members of the bug-catcher’s club, sing the same song over and over again, and of course, hang all over their counselors! These little ladies think their counselors are the best! They look forward to bedtime stories and the chance to sit next to their counselors at lunch. For many of them, their first camp experience may be their first time away from home for an extended length of time. Homesickness is fairly common and it’s important for their counselors to be attentive and encouraging – sometimes for longer than initially anticipated. Being a counselor can be hard because results aren’t always instantaneous, however, it’s important to remember that no kind action is ever wasted! This is a great job for any who loves kids, is an elementary education major, or who plans to be a mom one day.
