HighSpeed03: Sometimes I really miss AC.

Me too. And then I remember the hours I worked and the stress it caused, and I miss it less.

magic dirt, that's hilarious! I love it...

Luckily, I only had to deal with children for an hour each this summer. I worked as a camp group tour guide at the American museum of natural history in NYC.

Some of us get burned out. Working 160+ hour pay periods gets tiring, and while we love the campers, there's sometimes too much BS to put up with.

I don't think anyone knows what's going on with the OLD Area 51 yet - so far, they were using it for some MOUT training and some Amazing Race (not the TV show) stuff - but those are both 8-day/12-day stuff, mostly AC. As far as I know, the only people who are using the new area 51 are the M2 8-day, ...

Summer's almost over

As July draws to an end, many of the counselors are fixing to head back to school for the fall. I know I personally am sad to be leaving (in a week and a half), as I've had many good times with all of my teams (some more than others). If any of y'all had me, or remember me, feel free to pm me and ke...

as a counselor, perhaps I can shed some light on the cell phone issue. We do not have a problem if you bring your cellphone here and use it at night or in the morning to call home. During freetime, if you ask, we're usually willing to let you call home then too. The problem arises when they come out...

for health insurance, alabama blue cross blue shield is a much better choice than the piddlance of supplemental health insurance they give here. as for payment, it's approximately $9/$8 per hour starting with $.25 bonuses for additional trainings.

It is a special privelage to wear counselor wings on your hab1 profile, given only to those of us who graduate some counselo...

Hey LB, Last summer on my AC girls scout team, I had a girl in a wheel chair who participated in many of the activities we do. We had to modify some things, obviously, but depending on what your disability is, we can work around it. We had one of our two wheel-chair girls crawl during E&E the la...

None of the bays in ANY hab have locks on the doors. The only rooms with locks on them belong to counselors. The third floor in Hab 1 is used as overflow for anything - sometimes boys, sometimes girls, sometimes both, weekends it's for PC families who have a member of each sex (a mom and her son, a ...

1. Housing always ALWAYS depends on availability - I'm sure most of y'all never stayed down in Hab 3 for EALD, but we had EALD kids this past weekend in my bay (Wagstaff). So it depends - you may be on the 2nd or 3rd floor - it depends. 2. When I was here in 2003 for ASA, you did two shorter mission...

yeah, but that's specifically talking about your second time - and you still came back afterward. I think the question was more about whether it's worth it to come back and do the same program again or not.

were their socks untied? Did they always wear the same clothes they had on the day after yesterday? Were they always dropping their pocket?

It sounds like one of those kinds of people.

Repeat and Soccer

Hey y'all. Those of you who knew me as a camper or who've been on here a while, will remember me as Soccer. Since I've now worked one entire season as Repeat, and my callsign doesn't seem to be changing anytime soon, I asked Vincent if he could change my name on here to Repeat. This will make it eas...

how do we register for it? I'd like to go to the one for 98, as well as the ones for 2001-present, as I've been coming here since 98 every summer at least once except for two years (one as a camper, one as a counselor). I'll try to contact as many of my friends from those years as I can, but first I...

Congratulations to... AC summer management

So we've had some rearranging down at the lake of our management, and I figured all those hard-working staff members deserved props. First of all, our fearless leader finally got promoted to AC Program Manager, after over a year of having no manager down at the lake (two AMs last year). So congrats ...

Lingo is not back this summer. I've discovered that being here as a counselor gives you a MUCH different perspective on the counselors than you have when you're here as a camper (yes, Repeat is speaking from experience). Most of the AC counselors for this summer were new hires and cross-trainers. On...

Hey Pyro,

I doubt you remember me, but you were my team leader on doubles at the end of summer '03. Now I'm back for my second season as a counselor at AC.
