We always say that being on staff at camp is one of the hardest, best jobs you’ll ever have. It’s beautiful and hard and sanctifying and silly. You laugh a lot, sleep a little, and pour every bit of yourself out all for the sake of showing girls Jesus and giving them the best summer of their lives.
Working at camp will show you who you are, the good and the hard, and give you friendships with your fellow staff members that last. After all, you just went through something BIG together. Who else is going to get all your inside jokes and crazy camp storieS?
You leave at the end of August Camp with tears in your eyes, promising to visit each other at school that year. The weeks go by and you get back in the swing of real life. The group chats die down, and you reacclimate to air conditioning and nights in the library instead of the Hut. Before you know it, all that’s left of your summer at camp is the stickers on your waterbottle and acquaintances who like your occasional Instagram post.
Friends, there is so much more community available to you, whether you worked one summer, or ten. You don’t have to be that crazy camp girl to tap in to these resources and remember who you were during your time at Greystone. No matter how long it’s been since you pulled on that staff t-shirt, we are so grateful for the impact you left here. Come be a part of our community again!
