What to put on your resume from working at our Summer Camp

What to put on your resume or college application for Wizards & Warriors Summer Camp Positions

Every year, we are able to make our exciting educational adventures possible with the help of a large number of highly creative staff and volunteers (we call them Guardians).  These individuals work hard and learn a great deal during their time with us.

We are not like most summer camps… our Guardians need to think on their feet, work very long hours, improvise solutions, and find creative ways to educate our Heroes.  We are very selective on who we invite to participate… and even moreso on who gets invited back.  The bar is high and our Guardians surpass it each time.

We know that many of you may go on to other positions or careers – or apply to colleges or academies.  In order to help you make this transition as easy as possible, we have created summaries that you can copy and paste for what to put on your Resume or College Application.

Feel free to contact us if you need a reference.

Thank you for all of your hard work in helping our campers become heroes!
