One thing I have learned in my 15 years with CYO/Camp Howard is that the Camp Counselor makes the difference in a child’s experience at camp. At Camp Howard the children break up into groups and spend the week with their cabin group building relationship as they move about the camp attending programs, eating at the dining hall, participating in campfires and the many things they do during the week. It is the camp counselor who makes the difference in the week for the kids.
If you know someone who is looking for a summer job, works well with kids and is a first class individual, then suggest they consider working at Camp Howard this summer. Camp counseling is an experience that young people look back on with pride and a sense of accomplishment. It is one of those jobs that make you feel good for having made a difference in someone’s life. We should all have the experience of being a camp counselor.
