It's day #5 of our Camp Counselor Appreciation Week and we want to send out a huge thank you to all of our incredible counselors who lived in bunks and lodges with our campers this summer. The members of this group go by many titles -- Bunk Counselor, General Counselor, Junior Counselor and Unit Leader -- and have an enormous impact on the lives of our campers. They dedicate their days to helping our campers have the best summers possible. They make life away from home fun, funny, nurturing, safe, comfortable, exciting, adventuresome and all around incredible. Our Camp Counselors are like a best friend, a mentor, a beloved teacher or coach, and a favorite aunt or uncle all rolled into one!
One of the things that I love most about our brother-sister summer camp is how dedicated our counselors are to our kids and the community. During each summer they work long days for one purpose: to help our campers grow and make as many friendships as possible. They are wonderful role models to our campers, and honor us by returning in large numbers year after year. Our camp counselors really are one of the best parts of our community.
