Camp is fun. This is well-known.
What is less well known is that camp is a terrific place to develop a resume.
I know what I am talking about. I worked a lot of different summer jobs:
- I was a landscaper and groundskeeper for the Town of High River;
- I schlepped plants at an Industrial Greenhouse;
- I was a sandwich artistan at Subway.
They were fine jobs. I made a bit of cash. But the place I learned leadership skills, people management, program planning? That all happened at camp.
None of my summer jobs gave me responsibility for managing people, projects, or budgets. I was never asked to spontaneously improvise a creative solution to an emerging problem. Camp work - that's different. I've lead serious business meetings, and worked difficult negotiations. The place that gave me the footing and confidence to do those things well was Crowsnest Lake Bible Camp.
Maybe you are still skeptical. Maybe you're thinking, "Yeah, that might be true. But I am awfully broke!"
