“I grew up at this camp, so I have rose-tinted glasses. But I like so much about this camp -- the counselor community is great, the inclusion program is great, there are a lot of amazing people that you work with and spend your days hanging out with. The community is super positive and energetic, if a little overwhelming. The job is hard and takes a lot out of you but it's so rewarding and fun if it's right for you.”
