1. What do you like about working with kids?

The role of a camp counselor revolves around working with children. This is your chance to really let your passion shine through.

"There are so many different aspects that I love about working with kids. First, the level of unpredictability is exciting. You never know what to expect each day and it keeps you on your toes. Also, they have a fresh perspective on life that we tend to lose as we grow older. Lastly, seeing the process of young people starting to become aware of their full potential is extremely rewarding."

2. What age groups do you have experience working with?

I have experience in working with many age groups. I would baby sit my younger cousins at family gatherings, for three years I was a peer mediator for kids in kindergarten through 8th grade.

3. How much experience do you have working with children?

I have had many experiences working with children. From the church to the library and at home.

4. Have you ever worked with a child with a disability?

No I have not but I feel like that would be a learning experience that hopefully I will get the chance to be a part of at this camp.

5. What are your interests and hobbies?

I'm an outdoor person into sports, fishing, team games and hiking.

6. What do you love most about being a camp counselor?

I love the connections I make with the kids and my fellow counselors to create long lasting memories and even some long lasting relationships.

7. If a kid is testing your patience, how would you react?

I would react calmly. I would ask the kid why he or she is not willing to agree with the situation.

8. Do you have a high level of patience?

Yes, after working and volunteering with kids before, I believe that I do.

9. Do you know any of the other camp counselors?

I am not associated with any of the other camp counselors

10. What is your biggest weakness as Camp Counselor?

My biggest weakness is probably that I am impatient. I always like to have something planned and I always like to be on the move. When I have down time or especially when I have to wait for something, I tend to feel impatient and anxious. But I know that this quality will help me always be a step ahead and always have something to do to keep myself and my campers busy.
