Kids will be kids, Staff stuff, Summertime

From the mouths of babes

The end of summer brings with it a host of tasks, from closing down the bathrooms on Girls’ and Boys’ Hills to a truly satisfying deep clean of every corner of the kitchen. Then there’s possibly the most daunting task of them all: Reviewing camper surveys. 80 campers a week, from 8 to 16 years old, with a variety of native languages…  It’s an exercise in interpretation, to say the least.

To be honest, I love this kind of data entry (I’m in marketing; I can’t help it.), especially the fill-in-the-blank questions. We ask each and every camper for one word to describe their counselor; between a whole lot of “cool,” “awesome,” and “amazing,” here’s what else they had to say about those Heroes & Heroines of the Hills:

  • Different
  • Chill!
  • The Best
  • Enthusiastic
  • Incredible
  • Kind
  • Rawness
  • Boss
  • Nice hair
  • Comforting
  • Excited
  • Epic
  • Understanding
  • Homie
  • The best one ever
  • Resourceful
  • Beast
  • Funtastical
  • Silly
  • Radical
  • Oh-so amazing

You know what? I think we agree.
