Usually the volunteers just assisted the camp staff. Keeping and eye on the kids was important as they sometimes wandered off. Learned to be more attentive and how to read emotions on children. Extremely fun as summer camps attempt to give teach and keep children happy. Recommend to people who want to become a Councillor eventually.
Pros
Learn leadership skills.
Cons
No pay as it is volunteer work.

My supervisor and director were disrespectful and rude. Acted very racist towards me. Although I loved working at the City of Markham as an Inclusion Camp Counsellor with children everyday, the only down fall was the staff.
