A NOTE FROM GARRETT
DEAR PROSPECTIVE STAFF MEMBER:
A very smart person once told me that people are paid for their work in inverse proportion to its importance to society. If that’s the case, then Camp Counselors are some of the most important people in the universe!
It’s a good thing that working at camp is the best job in the world, because, let's be honest: nobody gets rich doing it. If you are looking for money to finance your next big adventure then coming to Hawkeye is the wrong decision. If, on the other hand, Hawkeye IS your next big adventure, then you’ve got the perfect approach.
What working at Hawkeye lacks in the 401k department it more than compensates for in fun, in experience, and in memories.
Take a look at this list of Top 10 Reasons Why Working at Camp is the Best Job in the World:
You can wear shorts and a t-shirt to work every day.
You get paid to jump off the diving board and do a cannonball.
You get to be part of a community that truly cares about you.
You'll meet and work with people from around the world.
S'mores are the finest fresh from the campfire.
You'll make the best friends of your life.
Capture the flag could be an Olympic Sport.
You get to laugh every single day.
The campers you work with think you're cool before even meeting you.
You have a chance to positively affect the lives of some amazing kids.
Also, you should check out this story of a staff member's impact on a child's life.
Well, listen...if you’re not sold by now, then perhaps being a camp counselor is not for you. But, if you want to work outdoors in the sun, be in the woods away from the bustle of the rest of your life, and make a real difference for some awesome kids, join our staff team and start doing something that really matters.
See you soon.
