Not everyone suits the dynamics of camp life, but those who do, generally love it. Having the “camp personality” is usually the key to enjoying the job. Being naturally energetic, enthusiastic, positive, charismatic, and willing to make a fool of yourself, probably just about sums up the “camp personality”. If you feel your personality doesn’t match two or more of these characteristics it is probably best not to apply to summer camp work.
We suggest to teacher applicants especially that they consider what type of camp teaching may suit them best, as although we believe no experience in any of our camps is better or easier than the other ones, it is true nonetheless that each of the environments, suits better different types of teachers.
