Working at a Summer Camp Abroad

6 Comments

For those who read my last post, you know that I’ve been working at a summer camp for the past 5.5 weeks. There I met so many different people from all around the world! I worked in the kitchen as a dishwasher as I’m not too qualified to be a counsellor. In the kitchen staff was 4 Canadians (including me), 2 Mexicans, and 1 German. At the camp workers were from all over the world (Spain, Italy, America, Australia). Thanks to this job I now have very close friends in Germany, Mexico, and Italy and have places to stay when I travel to these countries. I now also have a travel buddy to go to Australia and Indonesia with!

I would definitely recommend getting a job at a summer camp if you are working abroad during the summer, either in the kitchen or for the camp. Working at a camp gives you somewhere to live, food, and an income. Plus it’s a great way to make friends. Here are some photos of my adventure there. (For those who are curious I worked at Camp Wabikon)

  3. Hi. I just got a job here at this camp and Canadian also. I’m a cook there and rooming with the baker. Do you know what the baker’s cabin is like?

    • Hey! It’s a great camp and the owners are amazing. The bakers cabin is shared with the other kitchen people if you’re a guy. The girls got their own cabin that wasn’t being used. But the baker gets their own corner since they usually worked at night.
