The Benefits of Being a Counselor at YMCA Camp PepinJan 16 2015
Given the plethora of choices teens have in the summer (travel programs, volunteer opportunities, college prep programs, etc.), parents may wonder if being a camp counselor is the best way for their teen to spend their summer.
For teens looking to learn skills that are needed to be successful in the workplace, there is no better summer job than becoming a camp counselor. Working as a counselor forces teens to put the needs of others before their own and embrace the role of role model. It teaches teens to work as a team and to get along with others who may be different from them. It prepares them for future jobs; some days are great and some days are difficult. It instills a good work ethic.
As YMCA Camp Pepin staff, teens will gain valuable work experience that they will need in the future including managerial skills, leadership skills, responsibility and good communication skills.
Working at YMCA Camp Pepin is very rewarding. As counselors, teens have an opportunity to make a positive difference in the lives of children while also having the best summers of their lives.
We are currently in the process of hiring staff for Summer 2015. Are you ready for the best summer of your life? Learn more about available positions: http://camppepin.org/get-involved/employment
