Working as a Kickapoo counselor is different from any other job that you will ever have. It is more than a “real job.” Here are a few things that you can expect:
To live with and teach classes to children 24/7 without much of a break.
To learn leadership and communication skills which you can apply to any career path you seek in the future.
To work as a member of a team of about 25 other counselors who share your goal of making Kickapoo a great place for girls.
To make friends of all ages that you will never forget.
To miss your friends and family from home.
To be really, really tired but still be able to function at a high level.
To make a profound difference in the life of a child.
To experience frustration in dealing with at least one challenging camper.
To rescue your screaming campers from a scorpion or centipede or convince some other hero to do it for you.
To feel a strong sense of pride when “your” camper learns something new or is willing to try something new because of you.
To miss camp when you are gone and want to come back next year!
