19 Brutally Honest Confessions From A Summer Camp Leader
Don't make us use our teacher voices.
Most of your children are hypochondriacs.
We throw away any artwork that the children give us.
Making friendship bracelets comes really easily to kids, but is weirdly hard if you're a grown up.
But we are very good at cat's cradles, yo-yos, scoobies, and loom bands.
It takes us roughly 30 minutes to learn that privacy isn't really a thing at summer camps.
And walking around with children clinging to every part of our bodies soon becomes totally normal.
When it comes to team games, the kids always gang up on us.
But that just makes us become hugely competitive.
There is no job on earth as boring as filling out an accident form.
Even once we get home, it takes us a while to stop using our child-friendly voices.
We hate watching the shows your kids put on.
And we're pretty convinced we're never going to get the Frozen soundtrack out of our heads.
We suffer from extreme lunchbox envy.
We can turn literally anything into a game.
And the messier the game is, the more we actually enjoy it.
We own more fancy dress outfits than we care to admit.
Giving children sweets makes them even more lively than you thought they could possibly be.
But giving them yoghurts is even worse.
And by the end of summer, we couldn't be more excited about seeing their parents.
