Cultivating your skills

Behind all the fun and friendships, you’ll develop skills that employers really want to see on your resume. Working in camp cultivates:

1

Oral Communication Skills

You will be required to communicate effectively with people at every level of the organization – campers, fellow staff, camp directors, and parents.

2

Critical Thinking and Problem Solving

You will be challenged to think on your feet to resolve a myriad of issues from the health and safety of children to how to get 12 campers to make their beds each morning.

3

Interpersonal and Leadership Skills

You will model professionalism and compassion by managing a group of campers, while contributing to the growth and development of each individual participant.

4

Collaborative Skills

You will receive on-the-ground, practical, real life training in how to work with a team and help build the culture of your camp community.

5

Creativity

You will develop innovative and fun ways to engage an audience of two to 200 and implement alternate plans when faced with unexpected changes to the daily routine.
