    Summer Camp Counselor Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Queens College.

    Interview Details

    I applied during my senior year of high school for the coming summer. I filled out a quick paper application (printable online) and brought it to the summer camp office. The woman I spoke to asked if I had time to interview right then, which I did. It was quick, with very straightforward questions. I had attended the camp for 9 years so I was extremely familiar with the programs and the campus. She then offered me a counselor position on the spot, which I accepted since I was 18 and just looking for a summer job. Conditional offers based on background check (you'll be supervising kids, so you need to have a clean record).

    A couple months later, closer to the summer, I received a letter in the mail with my group number and age. On my application, I preferred to have younger kids, but was given 11-14 year olds. I believe the younger kids are a more popular choice and they are filled with returning counselors first.

    All in all, it was an extremely straightforward interview process.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing particularly difficult. What are your interests? Why do you want to be a counselor? Etc.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation. Minimum wage job, with increases for returning counselors. Parking included.
    Accepted Offer
