To be honest, with all the adventure, excitement and unexpected surprises at camp, there’s no such thing as a “typical” day … but we’ve tried our best to outline a normal schedule. We hope this helps you have a better understanding of what to (mostly) expect from a day in the life of a camp counselor! Since we have two different sets of staff (cabin counselors and activity counselors), we’ve separated the daily schedule by position.
Working at a summer camp is an incredible and life-changing experience. From cabin counselors and activity counselors, to kitchen crew members and photography interns, every staff member has the unique opportunity to share the love of Camp Highlander with our campers as they experience the magic of our mountain home. Come work at Camp Highlander. You will make lifelong friendships and be changed for the better.
Working at camp is one of the most demanding jobs I think I may ever have, but it’s also the most rewarding job I think I may ever have. Not only are the friendships with other staff members special, but the bonds and relationships that can be built with campers (and their siblings, and families, even) is something I’ll always cherish. Being able to work at camp for 4 summers (over 5 years), I got to witness the growth in several kids, but the coolest part about witnessing that growth, is being able to know that I played a small part in that growth.
