Summer camp jobs - a place to grow!

Welcome everyone to my blog. Running a residential camp (Maine Arts Camp), as well as MySummers (a staffing site) and Camp Finders (a summer camp referral service), I have gained a unique perspective about sleepaway camps. I first attended camp in 1970 in Maine; I'm still at camp and love it!

Healthy eating

I just read an interesting article from the Boston Globe. Colleges are starting to serve smaller portions and are adding vegetables to students' plates. Tapas, which are quite a buzz in restaurants these days, offer a good way for college students to try different fare while not taking too much food. Running a camp, we are quite aware of what type of food we serve our campers. Parents are looking for healthier foods for their children and our counselors often talk with campers about adding color to their plates (vegetables, fruits). It is a discreet way to address eating issues that many campers have (and staff!). We hope to integrate some of the strategies from the article at camp this summer. Check out the article at
