I Wrote A Book (And How You Can Win A Copy)!

So… I wrote a book. Yep, me, I wrote a book!

I wanted to find a way to put all my summer camp stories and advice into one place, and I figured a book was the very best way to do that.

This book has been an absolute labour of love and I am so excited for you all to read it and hopefully get inspired to take that leap and spend your summer doing the best job in the world.

If you’ve always wanted to know more about what being a summer camp counselor is really like, then look no further, this is the book for you. It’s a true and honest account of my first ever summer at camp – my full daily diary from that summer, detailing absolutely everything that I did, every single day, from the moment I left the UK, to the day I landed back there almost 3 months later. This ‘How To’ guide reveals all through the real diary of a first time counselor, with plenty of fun, laughs and, of course, the drama that ensues when a group of young people live together for 10 weeks in the sunshine.

This book is an absolute must-read for anyone thinking about working at summer camp, with an enormous amount of tips, tricks and information about how to make the most of your summer and be the best camp counselor you can be. This is a how-to guide you won’t find anywhere else!

  1. Pumped to get back out for my 3rd summer in the woods. The feeling of having a child look up to you and love you is the best feeling ever. So is making their summer as good as it can be! Congrats on your book x


  2. It’s incredible all the things you need to know before go, and they will not be still enought! I applied for my first time, and i have a mix of feeling, that is getting me crazy! Hopefully with your tips and experiences I can be a little bit more confident!

    Congratulations for your blog is it so helpful!


  3. I’d love a copy of this book! I’ve applied for my first summer camp for this year, and it’s such a mixed bag of emotions that I’m feeling already! I want to be a camp councilor, so I can do something that is not only for my own development as a person, but also so I can help the children grow. I truly can’t wait for the experience, and I’m sure this book would see me in good stead. Love the blog too x
