as a Summer Camp Counselor 10 Things I Learned

As a kid, I spent eight incredible summers at a sleepaway camp where I made lifelong friends, learned about myself and my community, and grew and matured in countless ways. While being a camper from the age of 9 to 16 was indescribably formative, the most important values, skills, and life lessons I learned came in the years that followed when I became a staff member at the same camp. Through my four years of being a counselor (and one year as a Division Head), I took away some invaluable lessons that have helped guide me through my personal and professional life. Here are the 10 most important things I learned as a summer camp counselor:

1. leadership skills

Imagine you’re a 17 or 18 year old fresh out of high school, starting to transition into a more

independent, adult life. You’re about to go off to college, or maybe you’ll soon start a new job, but it’s possible you’ve never had to make any big decisions for yourself yet. Working as a camp counselor puts you into an environment where taking charge and making decisions is a crucial part of the job. From planning programs, to making sure activities run smoothly, to leading groups of sometimes dozens of kids, developing leadership skills is a natural byproduct of getting the job done.

2. Responsibility

Many teens have been responsible for other people before, perhaps as a babysitter, lifeguard, or some similar job. Camp counseling takes the fundamental parts of childcare and supervising kids to a whole new level, as counselors often care for large groups of children at once. When parents drop their kids off at camp, they are entrusting their

kids’ safety in the hands of staff members. In my experience, that level of responsibility can improve young adults’ confidence and sense of self worth, better preparing them for the responsibilities of adult life.

3. Teamwork

I was always the student in school who hated doing group projects; I almost always preferred to work on things alone and in my own way. I didn’t see the value in working with others when I was certain I could handle it all myself. That facade was quickly broken the first summer I worked as a counselor, realizing that one 17-year-old simply could not attend to the full time needs of the dozen third graders that were under my supervision. I learned early on that summer the importance of collaboration and teamwork with my co counselors and other camp staff, and that asking for help is a sign of strength

and maturity, not weakness.

4. Flexibility

As much as camp staffers try hard to provide structure and stick to their schedules and plans, we all know that sometimes life has other plans. A change in weather can derail the outdoor obstacle course you spent hours setting up. A crying kid can pull you away from whatever task you were trying to work on. Running out of art supplies before craft time is over means you may need to improvise entertainment for the next 20 minutes. No matter what the situation is, a camp counselor must learn to be flexible and ready to switch gears at a moment’s notice, a life skill many adults don’t even learn.

5. n othing is the end of the world

Going hand-in-hand with being flexible, one of the biggest lessons I take away from every summer spent at camp is that nothing is the end of the world, even though it may feel that way. Especially when you’re spending weeks in a “camp bubble” and taking your counseling responsibilities seriously, the smallest things can feel dire. When you’ve spent all week planning a basketball tournament for the whole camp, and suddenly day-of all the basketballs in camp are missing, it can feel like the end of the world. Working at camp taught me how to take a step back from a situation, see the big picture, and put stressful situations into perspective, a skill I’ve carried over into other aspects of my life.

6. Creativity is key

Before working as a camp counselor, I never would have considered myself to be a particularly creative person. Having to entertain kids of all ages for eight weeks straight every summer definitely showed me that I was wrong. Needing to have fresh and fun programming for every day of the summer pushed me to think outside of the box and really get creative with the activities I was planning. Now, I can easily write a brand new program for a group of campers with just a little brainstorming and imagination.

7. i mportance of community

For campers and staff members alike, summer camps are integral in fostering community and meaningful relationships. Most camps are centered around some common identity, be it a shared hobby, geographical area, religion, or personal values. My camp, for example, was a Jewish sleepaway camp, meaning for two months of the year, I was completely immersed in Jewish culture and surrounded by other Jewish people from around the world. As a young adult struggling to find my place and purpose in the world, camp provided a welcoming environment every summer where I could feel seen and understood by those around me. No matter what community you belong to, camp is an amazing place to learn and reinforce the values that are important to you and your life.


Fostering friendships

In addition to building relationships to a community as a whole, summer camps have the power to create and nurture lifelong friendships. Some of my closest and oldest friends are people I met my first year as a camper, and every year that I returned only yielded more and more incomparable friendships. To this day, any time I return for a quick visit in the summertime, I get to develop bonds with new and interesting people in an environment that promotes

togetherness and camaraderie, a fact I never take for granted!

9. Working in stressful situations

Let’s be real; taking care of kids is stressful. Even at day camps, where the campers go home at the end of the day, ensuring the safety and wellbeing of dozens of kids (while also keeping them entertained and happy) is a lot of work. Being a counselor gave me tons of skills for coping with stressful situations by teaching me patience, empathy, and quick-thinking problem solving techniques. As I went through college and now in my professional career, the stress management skills I learned at camp have prepared me for life’s challenges and empowered me to manage whatever life may throw at me.

10. Finding the fun in everything

While working at summer camp certainly can be difficult at times, it is also the most fun job a young adult could ask for. Working outdoors, making friends, watching kids be silly, and seeing your campers grow and mature throughout the summer is incredibly rewarding. As a camp counselor, you are the mood setter for every situation- if you’re having fun, the kids will have fun, too. Learning to take the ordinary everyday stuff and turn it into something exciting improves both your own life and the lives of those around you.

How to Begin the Camp Search

Thinking about summer camp for your child but don’t know where to start? Here are a few tips to help you find the best camp for your child.

Think of What You Want Out of the e xperience

Take the time to really think about what you would like your child to gain from the camp experience. Are you looking for your child to gain independence, build confidence and make new friends or are you looking for that along with excelling at a specific sport? Are you considering day camp as a working family and need full day care? Is there a specific “must have” activity or feature you need the camp to have? Write down a list of things you want your child to get out of the experience and what the “must have” things are to help you narrow down the options.

Consider Who Your Child i s

Being able to describe who your child is will help you find the right camp for them. Is your child introverted or outgoing? Does your child have any special considerations? Do they thrive in large groups, or would a smaller camp be a better fit? Does your child enjoy participating in sports or do they prefer theater and art? Being able to answer these questions about your child will help you look for a camp that checks the boxes of what your child needs to thrive at camp.

Researching camps

There are many different ways to go about searching for a camp:

Word of mouth – It’s good to talk to friends and neighbors about where their children go to camp and to learn about their child’s camp experience, however, you want to make sure to do their own research when it comes to choosing a camp. While one camp might be a perfect fit for one child, it might not be for another. Each family and child are different, as is each camp, so finding the one that is the best fit for your child may be different than someone else.

Talk to the Camp Director /Leadership –

Whether this is in person or by zoom/phone , one of the most important parts of your camp research is to talk to the camp director or a member of the leadership team at a camp you are interested in. When you choose a camp, you are forming a partnership with the director and you want to make sure you feel comfortable with them. Clicking with the camp director and feeling that you can be open and honest with them is imperative when choosing a day or overnight camp.

Search online – Checking out a camp’s website and social media channels is a great place to start. See what type of activities are offered, if the session lengths match what you are looking for, and what the camp’s philosophy is.

Touring – One of the best ways to get a feel for a camp is to tour a camp you are interested in. Day camps offer tours all year long and overnight camps tour during the summer into the fall. Touring allows you to see the facilities and ask questions about the camp while in the camp environment. Touring during the summer allows you to see the camp in action, which can give you a good feel about how what the camp is like. If you are considering an overnight camp for 2024, set up a few tours at camps you are interested in. It’s helpful to have an initial conversation with the camp director before scheduling a tour to be sure the camp is potentially a good fit for your child before traveling to see a camp.

Camp Fairs – At camp fairs, families can

walk from table to table to find out about all the different summer camp options. The fairs allow families to talk to multiple camp directors all in one day to compare various camps and gather information. Find out about New York Family’s camp fairs taking place this winter in NYC, Long Island and Westchester at newyorkfamily. com/camp-fairs.

Camp Open Houses – Many day camps and overnight camps offer open houses in the spring and fall so families can have a chance to visit the camp. During the open house, the camp will offer activities and provide families with a chance to walk around camp. These days are fun ways to visit the camp and give you the opportunity to talk to the camp director and leadership team in the camp environment.

Call the American Camp Association, NY and NJ – The ACA, NY and NJ offers parents free, one-on-one advice in finding a camp. Whether you are looking for a day, overnight or specialty program, the American Camp Association, NY and NJ can help in your search! Contact Renee Flax at 212-391-5208 or renee@ acanynj.org.

While the process of searching for camps can often be overwhelming for parents, once you sit down and focus on who your child is and the type of camp experience you want, the choices begin to narrow, leaving you with a few camps to consider. Spending the time now to find the right camp will pay off when your child has the summer of their life at camp!

Finding the Right Camp for Your Child and Family

When starting your search for a summer camp, it’s important to consider many factors. How long would you like the camp experience to be, what types of activities would you like your child to participate in and what does the summer look like for all the members of your family? Here are just some of the things to consider when choosing a camp for your child and some types of camps that might be a good fit for your family.

If your family travels a lot over the summer or you would like your child to have multiple camp experiences, try a short session overnight camp – Jackie Brethel, Director of Kippewa Point, an all-girls camp in Maine, says that a short session camp gives families flexibility. “Our two-week camp schedule allows for campers to enjoy a family vacation,

other specialty camps or an academic program while still being able to have a positive overnight camp experience. Girls arrive at camp together, spend two weeks at camp and then all depart together. This allows for a complete camp experience where no one misses out while also giving families flexibility.”

If your child enjoys many different camp activities, check out a traditional overnight camp – “A traditional overnight camp gives children a well-rounded experience where they have the ability to do amazing sports, arts, and outdoor adventure programs all at one camp,” says Steven Bluth, Owner and Director of Camp Southwoods, a coed overnight camp in the Adirondacks. “Our lake provides so much fun on the water with water skiing, sailing, boating and water toys like slides or a water trampoline. Evening activities could be the camp’s musical performance or a campfire with yummy

s’mores. Or perhaps one night it’s a carnival or maybe color war is breaking. Nights end with canteen, a camp favorite with ice cream and assorted candy as well as hanging out with the bestest friends your child has ever had. All of this, and more, is why a traditional overnight camp is a great choice for any child looking to participate in a wide range of camp activities.”

If your child is passionate about sports, look into a camp with an emphasis on a great instructional sports program – “Choosing a camp with a great instructional sports program allows kids to improve their skills in areas they already know while also learning new skills in sports they don’t know,” says Alissa Girling, Director of Camp Winadu, an all-boys overnight camp in the Berkshires. “It’s important for a camp to provide a positive and nurturing environment so kids feel confident and comfortable while learning sports. At

Winadu, we believe that it’s not about being the best athlete but about being the nicest.”

If your older child isn’t interested in overnight camp, check out a day camp with a program for older campers – “Not every child is built for sleepaway camp,” says Gordon Josey, Owner and Director of Breezemont Day Camp in Westchester County. “Our Varsity Program was created for children in grades 4-8 and offers campers an individualized program, allowing them to choose most of their activities like coding, Stem, arts and some sports. We also bring in special events just for them such as Graffiti art, a DJ who does digital mixing and archery tag which all appeal to this age group. We also have campers who go to overnight camp for a few weeks and then come back to Breezemont for the remainder of the summer, giving them the best of both worlds.”

If you are a working parent and need summer childcare, research traditional day camps that offer a full day program (with some camps offering before and after care) – “The beauty of choosing a traditional day camp for your childcare needs is you are

providing your child with a set community, with the same children there daily. It also allows for families to select one option for the summer and have consistent care all summer from morning until about 5 PM,” says Josh Male, Owner and Director of Gate Hill Day Camp in Rockland County. “If you live close by to a camp that offers before and after care, you can get coverage for even more time from 7:30 am – 6 pm. We have about 10% of our families that take advantage of this.”

If you are looking for a camp that offers financial assistance, look into a nonprofit summer camp – “We never want cost to be

a barrier to going to camp. Our focus is to make sure camp is affordable for everyone,” says Rhino Merrick, Director of Camp Sloane, an overnight camp in Connecticut. “We realize the full cost of camp can be a stretch for some families and we have a robust financial assistance program that helps people who need it. At Sloane, we offer tiered pricing. We ask if you can pay tier 1, which is the full price, to pay that but if you want to pay tier 2 which is partially subsidized or tier 3 which is more subsidized, that is ok. Without the option to pay a reduced rate, we know that for many families, camp may not be an option.”

“ it’s important for a camp to provide a positive and nurturing environment so kids feel confident and comfortable.”

Tips for Preparing Your First-Time Camper (and you!)

Heading to day or overnight camp for the first time is very exciting for a child but as you would with any new experience, emotionally preparing them (and yourselves) for what’s to come will be helpful in setting your child up for a successful first summer.

One of the best ways to get your child excited for camp is to tour the camp. Both day and overnight camps offer tours which allow children and their families to see the camp and to get a feel for the camp and the leadership team. Day camps offer tours all year long and overnight camps offer them in the summer into the fall. “The camp tour is the first opportunity for a child to feel comfortable,” explains Heath Levine, Owner and Director of Shibley Day Camp in Roslyn, NY. “Tour guides and camp directors will make connections with the camper and their guardians. This is the first step towards gaining the child’s trust and alleviating anxiety.”

If you are unable to tour the camp, there are other ways for your child to become familiar with the camp and its leadership team. “Many camps offer Fall/Spring Festivals, off-season play days and other opportunities to visit on site before the camp season begins. You can also take advantage of

virtual tours, videos, slideshows and picture galleries. Facetiming with the camp director or division leader also allows for the child to see a familiar face when they get off the bus,” explains Levine. “The more your child sees the camp and its staff, the less overwhelmed they will feel and the more comfortable they will be leaving you on day one.”

Before camp begins, many children worry about whether they will have friends at camp. Jamie Sirkin, Director of Summer Trails Day Camp in Westchester County says that including a conversation about making friends is an important step in emotionally preparing a child for camp. “Let your child know that one of the roles of the camp counselor is to help cultivate friendships, manage the rocky roads in relationships, and ensure that new campers feel welcome. Children should feel comfortable sharing their feelings with their counselors so that the camp staff can be the most helpful. Additionally, it’s important for your child to understand that building friendships takes time and practice.” Carrie Young, Director of Camp Nah-Jee-Wah, a coed Jewish overnight camp in Pennsylvania says that 80-85% of their campers come to camp without a friend. “There is no need for campers to go to camp with a friend. We do such a great job of community building on

day 1. There are so many other kids going to camp for the first time that don’t know people either and we do a very good job of community building on day one.”

Young also adds that it’s helpful to talk about the new routines that will take place at camp. “Let your child know that there will be routines at camp, just like there are at home but they will be different. There will be a new bedtime routine and new traditions as well and that you can’t wait to hear all about them.”

Besides preparing children for camp, it’s important for parents to mentally prepare themselves for the camp experience. “Sometimes parents have a hard time letting go and worry that their child will be homesick,” says Young. “Kids get excited about new experiences and forget about being homesick. If a parent hasn’t heard from the camp, it means that no news is good news. It’s not that their child doesn’t love them, but they are happy playing and making new friends.”

Taking the time to prepare your child for what camp will be like goes a long way in helping your child get ready to have a positive first year at overnight camp.

Overnight Camp Dos & Don’ts

These camp Dos and Don’ts will help your child and your family have a successful summer at overnight camp.

DO your camp research to make sure you are finding the right camp for your child. There are so many excellent camp choices, however, it’s important to make sure you are choosing a program that is the right fit for your child and family.

DO try and tour the camp before you register. Seeing the camp will allow your child to picture themselves there and feel more comfortable as the first day approaches.

DO get to know the camp director and leadership team before your child goes to camp. Having a relationship with them will make you feel more comfortable and there will be an established relationship when you need to ask them a question or discuss something with them.

DO trust the camp director and leadership team to make the right decisions for their camp. You chose this camp because you trust them. Do your best to step back and let them do their jobs.

DO be honest with the camp director and leadership team about your child. If your child has trouble sleeping or has a special consideration, knowing these things ahead of time will allow the camp to best be able to help your child.

DO talk about camp in a positive way in the months leading up to the summer. Let your child know that camp is going to be great and that you know they will have a wonderful summer.

DO let your child know it is ok to miss home AND still have fun when they are at camp.

DON’T make pick up deals and say to your child that if they are unhappy at any point,

you will pick them up. By saying this, you are telling your child you don’t think they will be successful.

DON’T spend all day analyzing online camp pictures when your child is at camp. A photo is a snapshot in time and if your child isn’t smiling, it doesn’t mean they are unhappy. It could just mean your child is focused on the activity they are participating in.

DON’T call the office every day to ask how your child is doing. If there is a problem at camp, you will hear from the camp. No news is good news.

DON’T pack things that the camp asks you to leave at home like a phone. By doing so, you are sending the message to your child and the camp that rules don’t apply to you.

DO write your child a positive letter to arrive in the first few days of camp. This will let them know you are thinking of them.

DON’T write about all the things they are

missing while at camp or how much you can’t wait for them to be home. This can make them feel homesick.

DO participate in any new camper gettogethers the camp schedules. These events can help your child feel more comfortable by meeting some other new campers and seeing the camp before they begin.

DON’T overpack. There is only so much shelf and cubby space at camp and campers end up wearing the same things all the time. Use the packing list as a guide and adhere as closely to it as possible.

DON’T bring too much stuff on Visiting Day. Camp is the gift you are giving them. They don’t need a ton of extras and most camps will throw away any food that the camper can’t finish that day.

DO try and enjoy summer while your child is away at camp, knowing they are participating in fun activities daily and making new friends.

Today, summer camps for Jewish youth are a mainstay of American Jewish culture, with dozens of different camps throughout the country catering to all types of interests, needs, and level of religious observance. While camps are undeniably popular, many parents are unaware of the incredible benefits of sending their children to Jewish summer camps. From fostering a sense of community and belonging, to promoting life skills and independence, attending camp can be an invaluable experience for children of all ages.

h istory

Similar to the advent of Hebrew schools in the US, the first Jewish camps emerged between the first and second World Wars as more Jewish people emigrated out of Europe. As nationalistic and oftentimes antisemitic sentiments rose among the general population, the need for a safe space specifically for Jewish youth grew significantly. Over the last century, Jewish camps of all natures were established around the country. According to Nancy Mykoff for the Jewish Women’s Archive, there were more than 82,000 children enrolled at nearly 200 camps by the year 2000, solidifying camps’ space in the world of American Jewish education and culture.

What are the benefits of summer camp?

The American Camp Association (ACA), the official accreditation agency of summer camps in the US, has conducted research over the last decade on the effect of camps in promoting social, emotional, and personal growth among campers. Preliminary findings from a five-year study on the impact of camps find that people who attended summer camps as children report higher levels of emotional intelligence and regulation, tolerance and appreciation for others’ differences, sense of responsibility, and sense of identity when compared to their non-camper peers. A separate, ongoing study from the ACA is finding that these impacts can be seen in staff members and older teenagers, too. Teens who partici-

pated in some CIT (counselor in training) programs at camps report that the trainings are crucial in developing certain life skills, most notably their interpersonal skills and capacity for being compassionate and caring.

Building upon these known benefits of camps in general, Jewish summer camps foster children’s relationships to not only themselves, but to their community, too. By providing an immersive environment centered on Jewish values, camps can help bridge the gap in a child’s Jewish education. In many cases, attending camp is the only time some children get to be around other Jewish kids. Additionally, as noted by Nancy Mykoff, Jewish camps are often at the forefront of progressive movements in Judaism such as the promotion of egalitarian leadership in the community.

Which camp is right for my family?

There is a seemingly endless selection of Jewish camps to attend throughout the country, each catering to different needs and interests of children and families.

First, you should decide whether a day camp, where campers travel home at the end of the day, or a sleepaway camp, where campers live on campus for a period ranging from 1 to 8 weeks, is right for your child. A child who has never spent time away from home may find an overnight camp overwhelming, and day programs can be a great way to introduce the idea of camp without the full commitment of a sleepaway program. Also consider that by nature of the live-in experience of sleepaway camps, they are usually

more expensive than day camps, although many sleepaway camps do offer scholarships.

Aside from day camp versus overnight, religious denomination and level of religious observance is an important variable that will impact your decision. Nearly every type of Jewish community has its own camp programs that vary in terms of demographics and type of observance. There are also independent, nonaffiliated Jewish camps that focus more on bringing Jewish youth together than being educational or religious institutions. No matter how you practice your Judaism, there is a camp for everyone.

Finally, consider the idea of specialized camps, such as ones focused on sports, the arts, wilderness adventures, and more. There are also camps and programs that are specifically designed for children with a range of disabilities and special needs, ensuring that every Jewish child can have a fun and fulfilling summer experience.

If you’re interested in sending your child to Jewish summer camp but don’t quite know where to start, check your local synagogues or JCC as many of them have in-house programs or relationships to other local camps. Word of mouth from other parents in your community is a great place to start, too.

Summer camps of all kinds can have lasting impacts on children’s development and social wellbeing, and Jewish camps come with the added benefit of fostering and nurturing campers’ Jewish and communal identities. No matter denomination, interests, income, or ability, a summer at Jewish camp can be a life changing experience.
