Undercover superheroes: summer camp counselors

By Emilie Hackett, Special to The Record

Camp counselors are without a doubt the unsung heroes of summer, ­especially for working parents. From sleepaway camps to regular day camps, countless children participate in fun ­activities coordinated by counselors that keep them busy until it is time to go home. The Record reached out to the Bishop’s University Day Camp staff to learn more about the ins and outs of being a summer camp counselor. “The goal of our camp is to entertain local children and allow them to grow in a safe and stimulating environment. Our camp grants them the opportunity to practice their English and French skills as we are a bilingual camp,” said Jacqueline Lumley. Lumley started working at the BU Day Camp four years ago and encouraged her younger sister Dominique to join her in 2016. The Lumleys, affectionately referred to as Tango and Noodle by the children, have therefore seen many of the recurring campers grow over the years.
