National Mentoring Month — A Guest Blog

In many ways summer camp is synonymous with mentoring. It’s what counselors do. But what I have learned in my young career is that it doesn’t stop there. I was a 17-year-old counselor at North Star when for the first time I was called into Robert Lebby’s office regarding a camper situation I had been working on. It was a tough decision about whether a camper would be able to continue his stay at camp.  Leb (as we call him at camp) and Sue were there, as well as a few members of the leadership team.
