To Skip Or Not To Skip The Internship?

As summer comes to a close, staff hiring is just one area we focus our attention early. As more and more college students are looking for internships during their summer breaks, our passionate and valued camp counselors face the yearly question of ‘do I go back to camp, or do I get an internship?’. We like this blogger who adamantly professes “Skip the internship and go to camp.” and we could not agree more! Read on.

Additionally, for the past few years, we have been sharing with our staff how to create a strong resume, using action verbs, with an active voice, and emphasizing responsibility, creativity, and innovation when describing their role as a Camp Counselor. It reminds employers of all the skills a camp counselor brings. It is a good reminder for all of our fantastic staff why being a camp counselor is fun and potentially a great resume builder. Being a camp counselor is a meaningful, rewarding, worthwhile, and invaluable way to spend your summer. Timber Lake West Staff come on back to camp for the summer of a lifetime!
