At NSDC, we view the summer experience not as a “job”, but rather “The Ultimate Paid Internship”. At camp you will develop what we call “Essential Skills/Soft Skills” that are extremely appealing to universities and future employers.
Essential skills are character traits & interpersonal skills that characterize a person’s relationships with other people (i.e. Communication, Teamwork, Emotional Intelligence, Leadership). Employers, more than ever, are looking for candidates with strong “essential/soft” skills.
In addition to developing these key essential skills & gaining real world work experience, working at camp also provides an amazing opportunity to make life-long friends and participate in one of the best summer experiences of your life!
“If companies should be hiring anyone, it should be camp counselors. Camp counselors are arguably some of the most patient, caring, hard-working individuals out there, and companies would be lucky to have them on their staff.”
