Camp Counselor

May - August 2021 • Black Mountain, NC

What I liked

I liked being able to lead a cabin of kids through fun and challenging activities to help them grow in their faith, friendship, and appreciation of nature. I liked leading and playing tribal games to help the kids bond. I also liked having the opportunity to lead devotions to build their spirituality. I absolutely liked working with all of the staff members because they are like brothers and sisters to me. A deeper level of friendship and trust exists in this magical place.

What I wish was different

I wish the summer lasted longer and had more opportunities to grow with the kids in more unique ways. The campout could have been longer and more fun. All in all, the experience was wonderful.

Advice

Trust in the process and take a leap of faith. It is very rewarding to work for a summer camp. You are able to get paid to have fun and make new friends. That is good news!

Camp Counselor

June - August 2019 • Black Mountain, NC

What I liked

The family atmosphere between staff, campers, and parents was amazing. There was never a dull moment. The Camp Rockmont Way compelled us to make connections, throw ourselves into our work, and focus on our campers and fellow staff members.

What I wish was different

I wish that we could've had a longer rest period.

Advice

Don't do this job if you didn't have a heart for children. They will challenge you, but the challenges will always make you better and cause you to love them even more, deeper.
