What this job is about
Who didn't love going to camp as a kid? OK, fine, not that one friend who was allergic to mosquitoes – but everyone else had a good time. Therefore, if sunscreen and bunk beds bring back awesome memories for you, you might want to become a camp counselor.Since there are a ton of different types of camps, you can choose one that suits your personality, whether it's teaching sports or working with children with disabilities. You'll need to be outgoing and fun, have basic safety skills and an infinite amount of patience. And mosquito repellant. Lots of mosquito repellant.
