Intended for evangelical Christian Camps, How to Be a Successful Camp Counselor isn’t stuffed with useless puff and theory. It’s an easy-to-read, easy-to-follow, practical book that fully equips even novice counselors to professionally handle everyday camp problems.

  • Discipline––without yelling, torture, or ridicule.
  • Enforce “problem preventing” cabin rules––without being a bully.

  • Get campers to sleep in about 15 minutes––every night.
  • Stop a bully in his tracks––without being one yourself.

  • Work like part of a team.
  • Have a safe and successful cookout.
