Camp Counsellor aka "The All-rounder!"

There's no need to panic; counsellors have nothing to do with psychology, psychiatry or therapy - of any description! 'Counsellor' is the term given to the people on camp who look after the campers' general well-being and ensure that the kids get to enjoy all their camp activities safely, whilst having a good time!

It's likely that you'll end up taking part in many of the activities as well - so while you don't need to be an expert, a flexible 'have-a-go' attitude is essential. On a typical camp day you could find yourself skipping from tennis, to archery, to pottery...to then finding yourself jumping off a double-decker boat into a lake; cheered on by your campers! You'll also find that you take a full and active role in the general areas of camp; from looking after a table of kids at meal times - to entertaining at the flagpole or singing round the camp fire.

And the role doesn't end once the kids are in bed! Counsellors often take on the role of 'bunk/cabin counsellors'. This means you'll sleep in the same housing area as the campers and supervise them through the night. So...if you have great childcare experience, but less specific activity experience and you fancy taking charge of your own tribe of campers for the summer - this could be for you!
