A time where I learned in a non- traditional setting is at Camp Varsity which is a summer camp that I have been working at for the past two summers and plan to work there this upcoming summer. At camp I work with kids ages 11-13 playing games and most importantly building friendships. I began going to camp when I was 10. My first year I was shy and barely socialized. Year after year I would gain the confidence I needed to slowly talk to other people I have never met before. Now as a counselor I see kids in the same situation as me and I try to teach them. These social skills that were once so strong in the world have deteriorated through the last few years as the world becomes more technology based. Companies are in a constant search for people that contain these social skills. Working at camp varsity has also taught me valuable leadership skills. At camp I live in a cabin with 4 other people. When needed I have to be a leader in a cabin. An example is when our head counselor was out doing other various tasks I had to get 22 middle school kids ready for a campout and get them organized. This task wasn’t as easy as it sounds. First I had to get their attention which nowadays is way harder than you think. Secondly, I had to give them a list of what to get ready and where to put it. After that I have to prepare myself for the bombardment of questions coming my way. After I got the kids ready, I subbed myself out so I could go out to the kitchen and prepare a cooler for breakfast the following day. The biggest part of the campout that I had to lead was in the morning at breakfast. I was in charge of making breakfast and watching all the kids because I was by myself. I was in a time crunch and had to make food for 23 people. These times when I have to step up, help me learn what it is like to be a leader. Another example of leadership is when I have to run weekend activities. During the weekends I have to run a camp wide activity. In these activities I can display my creativity and leadership. These activities are a good way to pass time on the weekends while other counselors clean.
