Not that you really need to communicate with the outside world anyway

5. Doing anything to make sure your campers are having fun.

Even if it means a pie upside the head multiple times a week.

6. Being a pro at killing bugs.

“I heard our counselor killed a wasp with her bare hands.”

7. Getting defensive when people make fun of your campers.

Only you can do that

8. Living with those tan lines.

No time to eat when “Raining Tacos,” “Breakfast Time,” or “I’m a Raccoon” is on.

10. Being in desperate need of quiet time and energy
