We pay our counselors on a set scale. The pay increases for our our more experienced counselors a well as our returning counselors. If you want to talk in greater detail feel free to send me a pm with your e-mail.
I worked at a number of camps, and the best place I got payed was at a camp that was run by a well known non-for-profit (Not the Y). I made around $4000 for about two months of work. Rare indeed. At other camps, I made around $150 a week.
