    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at ESF Camps part-time


    Connections/opportunities to work at other camp locations; short commute to my location; support from supervisors after training; required to give feedback throughout the experience; ample options for picking up extra hours; opportunity for being hired successive summers is high


    Steep learning curve (I was basically thrust into the position without what I would consider is adequate on the job training); environment was not very welcoming to new members; Unchecked cultural appropriation of Native cultural aspects; Team members not always willing to work in an efficient or productive fashion

    Advice to Management

    Reduce or eliminate cultural appropriation, or at least explain to campers to origin and background of the "tribes", "pow-wow", and "spirit stick" used in everyday camp lingo. Refine training protocol. Encourage members to be more inclusive, perhaps with bonding activities that don't involve physical activities so there is more time to talk and get to know one another.

    Day Camp Counselor Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at ESF Camps in April 2014.


    Basic childcare questions, easy enough to answer if you've had any experience working with kids, including babysitting. The hiring manager was nice and it wasn't intimidating. Be prepared to explain how you would deal with a difficult child, and know things about ESF (their different camps, etc.). Also don't be afraid to emphasize if there's a certain camp or program you want to work in. If they don't have that available they'll offer you something else.
