Top Summer Camp Skills

Summer Camps across the USA spend the off season looking for the perfect candidates to fill their open camp counselor spots – sometimes they might have very specific roles in mind, such as a horse riding instructor or lifeguard, but most of the time they just have a general idea of who they need to hire and what roles they need to fill.

And oh wow there are a lot of different roles at summer camp. Depending on the camp you end up at, you could find yourself doing a whole myriad of different things, with separate skills needed for each activity.
