Overall compensation for your work
Starting pay is far too low for the hours you put in every day.
If you choose to work here be aware that you will have very little time to yourself as you will live, eat, and sleep with your group 5-7 days a week.
The children, as customers, are ultimately more important than any employee in terms of monetary value so expect to be disposable.
No ramps into any of the cabin areas.
Suggestions for improvement
- Honestly, increased pay and a bit more time to de-stress would fix a lot of issues fellow cabin specialists had. At the moment starting pay is $2k for the summer, equating to minimum wage. With the money the owner pulls in from the camp, as well as his other businesses like the local watering hole, they could afford to bump pay up a grade for every temporary employee.
What I like about the company
Working with children, healthy eating options, help leading an active lifestyle
What I dislike about the company
Lack of pay, lack of preparation during training, lack of support from management, no time to decompress.
There's a reason a lot of the counselors turn to alcohol on their time off.
