Episode 48: “But we’re not in it for the money”



Patti uses this Quick Bites episode to rant discuss (… ok, rant!) about camp professionals not only being underpaid for their work – but encouraging that precedent within the industry.

She compares camping to other professions full of people who are also very passionate about their work – but unlike camp professionals, get fairly compensated for that work.

She also discusses disparity and the trickle down effect within camps, then gives some tips on how to change the “we’re not in it for the money” culture.

And she rants… a lot.

We’d love to hear from you, do you agree, disagree?
