Working at camps in California as an adult will give you more than just a paycheck, it might just teach you some impressive survival skills as well. The types of survival skills you might learn vary by camp- some of the more rugged camps require campers and staff to live off the land and survive without electricity, while other camps provide the amenities including showers and air conditioning- but every camp affords staff with the opportunity to refine skills that are useful in the real world. Lessons you learn from opting to spend a summer as a staff member at camp go beyond those gained at a "typical" summer job and leave you more prepared to take on the real world. If I was as hot as you, would you advise me to quit my stupid underpaid job and go into porn ? When you see how much the kids and adults around you start to depend on you, you start to display a sense of confidence that you might have never seen in yourself before.
