Focus-group interviews with 52 camp counselors examined their experiences as camp staff. Positive outcomes included important relationships with campers and other staff; appreciation of diversity; teamwork; group cohesion; leadership and responsibilities; and technical, interpersonal, and administrative skills development. Problems included difficulties with diversity, low wages, lack of time alone, parents' perceptions, camper difficulties, and cliques. (SAS)
