    I worked at Girl Scouts USA full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The camp director was very sweet and helpful, despite the unrealistic demands being made by the main office. The children were wonderful even when it was hard to give them interesting activities.

    Cons

    Some 12-hour days seemed a bit much, you have to pay $25 to become a Girl Scout member just to work as a camp counselor. I was shocked when one of the senior directors told another counselor that she couldn't wear her tank top that had wide straps and covered her. Way to empower girls! The directors from the main office expected us to make up all our own activities with little supplies and no beach front or similar activities...

    Advice to Management

    Help us come up with activities for the children instead of continuously telling us we are wrong. Take heat warning seriously...especially the ones that say children should not be outside that day.

We were paid to spend time in the outdoors for nine weeks during the summer and lead traditional camp activities along with other educational and/or fun activities. Over the years, I worked with girls age 6-17...

    Cons

    Time off and breaks are extremely limited: We only received a two hour break each day, one night off (5 hours off camp property) each week, and about forty hours off every other weekend during session break. Although we also received a one week break in between working at the two summer camps (in the transitional period at the end of June/beginning of July), time off was quite scarce. This made the summer increasingly...
