== Organization ==
In most camps, the [[adult]] [[supervisor]]s are called ''counselors''. In many camps, counselors are assigned to smaller groups of campers, called "bunks", "huts", "cabins", or "units", who participate in activities as a group. Counselors often share living accommodations with their bunk or other counselors. Most counselors are in their late
teens or early twenties, as high school or college students on their summer break are frequently recruited.
At some camps,
all campers stay overnight , and at some camps, so called day camps , the campers go [[home]] each night. Some other camps allow both day and overnight campers. Summer camp is often the first time that children spend an extended period of time away from home.
