WHAT'S A CAMP COUNSELLOR?
You. The role of a camp counsellor is all about kids, kids, kids. You'll be looking after a group of children from a range of ages pretty much all day. Your responsibilities will include waking them up (be creative - get the old school pots and pans out!), taking them to activities throughout the day and sharing meal times with them.
Of course, your main priority is that they are always safe and having as much fun as possible. It sounds like a lot, right? Well, it is - but you'll quickly realise kids are the funniest humans ever and working with them is as rewarding as anything.
If you have previous childcare experience, be sure to let us know. This will look even better on your application
