Camp counselors live in the cabin with the boys and are with them during morning watch, all meals, rest hour, and overnight.
It is a counselor’s responsibility to get to know his campers so he can help guide them through the session. He also does his best to keep his campers safe and see that they are taking care of themselves (showering, brushing teeth, eating well, and seeing the nurse if necessary).
Every camper comes to Laney a little homesick or nervous. The best part of working at Camp Laney is helping these campers overcome their fears and seeing their maturity grow every day. I wouldn’t trade my Camp Laney experiences for anything.
During the day, camp counselors work at one of eight activities, with two off-periods per day. Counselors receive three off-nights during a session (6pm-12pm) and a day and a half between sessions.
The job of a camp counselor can, at times, be stressful. It is essential to have the physical, emotional, mental, and social health needed to be able to effectively fulfill the responsibilities of the job.
