YMCA Camp Watia

Camp Counselor

May - August 2018 • Bryson City, NC

What I liked

My co-workers were amazing and the environment there was so kind, warm, and friendly.

What I wish was different

I wish I had a bit more off time.


It is easily one of the most demanding jobs. It takes a lot of time and effort but it’s also really rewarding. One piece of advice I would give about being a counselor is to alway have an open mind and never judge or assume anything. Giving kids the experience to be kids and to have fun is one of the most rewarding things I’ve ever done.
