    There is no job like it.

    1. Finishing staff training thinking you are ready to conquer the world.

    2. When your first campers arrive and you could not be more excited.

    3. Becoming best friends with your co-counselors insanely fast.

    4. Knowing exactly where you get phone service.

    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.

    9. Dancing at every meal

    10. Being in desperate need of quiet time and energy

    13. You can do no wrong in the eyes of your campers.

    16. And going home trying to explain your summer but no one can understand.

    Unless they've been a camp counselor.
