"A reason to return"

Star Star Star Star Star
Former Employee - Counselor in Newtown Square, PA
Former Employee - Counselor in Newtown Square, PA

I worked at ESF Camps full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Nights and weekends off, fun co-workers, fun work (if you like kids), and great experience and networks if you want to be a teacher.

Cons

Low pay, micromanaging supervisors, and so many rules. Focus is on avoiding liability, not the kids

Advice to Management

Let the counselors have a little freedom!

    I have been working at ESF Camps part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    LOTS of activities offered, high energy from everyone, kids are very excited to be there, the directors at this camp knows how to run a camp, family flings, and literally so much more (rock wall, plays, art, engineering, photography, sports, swimming pool, quest challenges, etc. etc. etc.) If you like working with kids, this is the place to go. I've worked at a summer camp before, and it was no where near as exciting as this one.

    Cons

    Hot, hot, hot, and humid summer days spent partially (sometimes mainly) outdoors. Days can seem long and draining. OK pay.

    Advice to Management

    Management works well. I have zero complaints for any of the directors or even staff.
