Working at camp is a real job. Businesses today look for applicants with interpersonal skills. Camp counselors develop and refine these skills every day working with their campers and fellow staff members. Effective communication, collaboration, creative problem solving, leadership, and conflict resolution are things you will practice every day while working at camp. When employers see “Camp Counselor” on a resume, they immediately know that person has the kind of skills they look for in an applicant.
