15 Reasons Being A Makor Counselor ~Rulezzz~

Here are 15 reasons everyone wants to be a makor counselor

Posted on

1. You get to work with the cutest kids on camp!!

Makor is the youngest division on camp and the kids are anywhere from 7-10 years old! (this is my sister after she spent all of her money at state fair on glasses she never wore again and a stuffed animal she lost the next day, classic Makor).

2. The kids have so much energy!

Their energy is contagious and makes the 7:30 wake up worth it!

3. They go to bed early too!

They might wake you up early, but after a long day they're the first ones to turn off the lights!

4. Makor goes to Kalahari!!

Kalahari is an indoor waterpark about 2 hours from camp, this is where Makor goes for waterpark day! (I've heard the pizza is delish).

5. We have the whole camp to ourselves for THREE DAYS!!

While the other two divisions are on their three day camping trips, Makor stays behind and rules the camp! These special days include mini camping trips, movie nights, and late wake ups!!

6. Makor rhymes with a lot of things!

This makes quiet cheers and themes very easy. For example: tour, shore, floor, more, roar!

9. Makor campers are so easily entertained

This makes improvising during down time very easy. Tell them a story, let them paint your nails, roll a ball back and forth in the cabin, the possibilities are endless!!

10. We have the best head counselor!!!!!

Julia is my right hand man! She is in charge of programming and is another great resource for anything you may need throughout the summer!! Julia just finished her freshman year at Emory, she is from Evanston, Illinois, and this will be her 11th summer at camp!!!

11. These kids love you unconditionally

You are their role models, their care takers, their entertainers, and their best friends. Don't take this relationship for granted, because before you know it the summer's over and your countdown restarts.

12. You help allow kids to feel safe and accepted!

Beber camp is the most special place on earth, this is somewhere kids feel they can be themselves and explore their identities in a safe space.

I'm the girl in the pink and these are still three of my best friends.

14. You will learn as much from them as they will from you.

Being a camp counselor has taught me so many valuable life skills and lessons that are so important in every day life, take advantage of these memories and relationships!!
