When the teens back-talk
When your lazy co-counselor spends siesta napping
When a camper tells you that you’re mean
“The counselors are taking over the gaga pit! It’s like they’re the kids and we’re the grown ups!”
When your campers take their stinky shoes off after a long hot day
When you promised your kids an after curfew campfire and they remembered
When you’re starving but the kitchen made your table 11 hot dogs instead of 12
When a camper refuses to put on their bug spray
When someone loses their buddy
When your boss gives a “start of the week” pep talk but you’re still not over last week
When a camper wakes you in the middle of the night because they have to pee
When a camper tells their parents that you had a triple siesta.
When it’s 3am and 10,000 degrees
When your BFF is off on a different night off than you
When your camp director tells you he’s proud of you for pushing through your fatigue.
