    I worked at Pine Cove part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They provided a lot of structure and guidance to help you be the best camp counselor you can be. All of their training and materials were really well thought out and biblical, and made it feel like we could handle any situation that arose. Great leadership, solid principles. I had a wonderful summer there with loads of fun and would've loved to have gone back for round 2. It's true that you are "on" 24/6, so it is exhausting and you'll be isolated from happenings in the outside world, but I never saw that as a con, just as a maximization of what you can do with your life when you're not distracted.

    Cons

    The nature of the camp is such that the campers are not significantly diverse - the cost of one week is high. They do have scholarships available, so there's some opportunity for kids who couldn't otherwise afford it, but as a counselor the homogeneity was sometimes striking. I also had some frustration that my salary for 5 weeks was less than what 1 camper paid for 1 week.

    Advice to Management

    Continue seeking out high quality college students and ways to make sure you're brining in campers from all walks of life. Make sure counselor compensation is fair.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Pine Cove.

    Interview

    The interview is a little intense and quite in-depth, mostly because of the subject matter, but the interviewers are all fun and kind people which make it easier. They ask you a lot about your views on topics like alcohol, same-sex marriage, drugs, smoking, and pre-marital sex; just be able to back whatever you say about the topic with scripture, and you will do great.
