Marine Educator

May - August 2018 • N Topsail Beach, NC

What I liked

I liked the opportunity to learn more about the marine life I love while sharing my previous knowledge with excited and curious campers. I also loved working hands-on with sea turtles and feeling like I was making a difference.

What I wish was different

I wish our bosses would have been more involved, I felt like there was a constant disconnect.

Advice

Make sure you know what you are getting into, especially as a camp counselor. It is a 24/7 job that requires endurance physically and mentally.
