Why Working at Muskoka Woods Looks Great on a College Resume

You might think camp is just about fun and games (which it is) but the experience can also give guests a leg up on future employment.

Even if you didn’t work at a camp, but maybe spent a week or two there over the summer, it says something about your personality and work ethic that can be very appealing to employers. Your time at camp should be included in your resume.

For instance, if you tried a week or two of overnight camp at Muskoka Woods for the first time, it shows you have resilience, confidence, independence, team-working abilities and even leadership skills. 

When a guest attends Muskoka Woods summer camp, they are trying new activities, branching out of their comfort zones and putting themselves out there to meet new people and make new friends. This all takes confidence.

Moreover, being away from home for the first time and sticking it out in a new place takes resilience. Being at camp and away from home also fosters independence and responsibility as parents are not around to help you get organized or make sure you have your own belongings.

Lastly, whether it’s ropes, tubing or beach volleyball, guests at Muskoka Woods learn how to work with a team to get the best possible outcome. In some circumstances, they may even lead their team to victory.

These are all attributes that any employer would love to see in their future employees and why any guest should not hesitate to include their experiences in their resume when it comes to their first job search.
