7 Things Your Summer Camp Counselor Wants You To Know
Ki Guillen

Working at a summer camp is something I love to do. It is a lot of work, but a lot of fun too. However sometimes our campers don't understand us, or why we are here. So here are 7 things your counselor wants you to know if you are one of their campers.

1. We don't want to be mean.

Seriously, we really don’t like having to yell at you. But most of the time if you’re doing something against the rules we get in trouble too. Plus, our rules are in place for a reason and there's a lot of fun you can have without breaking them. We don't want you getting hurt or getting in trouble, so just follow the rules!

2. We are tired.[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F07%2F31%2F636055267604505219508303978_200.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=787&h=1aee514b02525015f87c28b61a09deed419a20c433d1435a192ed1cbf7ee3158&size=980x&c=2869554436 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F07%252F31%252F636055267604505219508303978_200.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D787%26h%3D1aee514b02525015f87c28b61a09deed419a20c433d1435a192ed1cbf7ee3158%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2869554436%22%7D" expand=1]

We are exhausted. We wake up before you and go to bed after you. Good sleep Is a completely foreign concept while we are working.

3. We Have a lot of campers.

It is like I am going insane.


I mean, I am taking rigorous classes which allow me to devote a lot of my time towards them, but still...it is only two classes. By the time I get done, I have a whole half of the day full of nothing. I end up just sitting on my phone for most of the day instead of doing something practical.
