James Sharer is a student at Pennsylvania State University. He has always had a job during the summer between school years, ever since he was in high school. And it’s usually had something to do with working with younger people.

James Sharer has been a lifeguard and a lacrosse coach, among other things. In fact he like being a lacrosse coach so much that he did that for two summers in a row. He also spent a summer as a camp counselor in West Chester, Pennsylvania.

“As a camp counselor,” James Sharer explains, “it was my duty to provide a safe and fun atmosphere for the campers. It was important to be a good role model and leader so the campers had someone to look up to. I also had to interact with the campers’ parents, and deal with any issues that arose in a professional manner.”

Some of the activities that James Sharer and his campers were involved with include horseback riding, gymnastics, dance, and all kinds of sports, including soccer and baseball. There was also a Harry Potter Academy for fans of the Harry Potter series of books and movies.

Summer camp, James Sharer knows, is all about having a great time in a safe and friendly environment. It’s also about the relationships that develop between the campers and the staff. Kids keep coming back to the same camp each summer, after all, because they remember what a great time they had the summer before. And that is James Sharer knew how important it was to make sure each of the kids had a good time in a wholesome environment.
