In what feels like a lifetime ago, I was a camp counselor. It's where most camp professionals start, and if you don't fall in love with camp as a child, the best way to get sucked in is through working at camp. During my last year as a camp counselor I had the opportunity to work at a resident camp in Massachusetts that also ran a Day Camp on the same property. Typically, the two worlds never meet, but that summer, I was one of the chosen ones to cross over and spend some time with the day campers.
Two years ago I made the decision to "change careers" as it may be. I graduated from college in 2009 and before I even donned my cap and gown, I was already on my way to Florida with dreams of sunshine and a career with the Walt Disney Company. I had waited all year to return for my second internship at Walt Disney World, and now that graduation was around the corner, I was going to live my Disney dream.
