19 One Liners You Say As A Camp Counselor
By: Alexa Hynes
- “Hydrate or Dydrate”
When hydration is key doesn’t seem to work.
- “Put a bubble in your mouth”
Basically the counselor way of saying “Shut up!”
- “Eyes on me”
This one is a desperate cry to get your kids to pay attention to you so you can tell them something that may or may not be important.
- “Make a counselor sandwich”
I think I tell my kids this about 800 times a day. Basically a way to make standing in line somewhat interesting. Make sure not to make a sloppy –joe, but a nice neat sandwich, and every part is important!!
- “You’re fine”
97 percent of the time the injury is all in their head and they just need someone to tell them it’s going to be okay.
- “Don’t eat that”
From gum on the ground to poison ivy, I guarantee that we have all said this at one point.
- “Who needs to go to the bathroom?”
No matter how many times you say you say it you will still have kids who need to go 2 minutes after you return.
- “Can you hold it 5 more minutes?”
No I cannot interrupt what I am doing to take you to the bathroom.
- “Lunch is in a few minutes”
Lunch could be 3 hours away, but it’s still in a few minutes, I promise.
- “Lights out in 5”
At least I hope.
- “Yes, you have to shower every night”
This one seems obvious, but apparently it’s not.
- “In 5…4…3…2…1…”
I’m not going to do anything when I hit zero, but I’m going to make you think I am.
- “If I told you no, why do you think you get to do it?”
You’re a disrespectful child. Do what I tell you whether you understand it or not.
- “No making purple”
Girls are pink; Boys are blue. Do not make purple!
- “That’s lit”
It’s actually not, but I am going to make you think it is.
- “Story time”
Let’s waste time by me telling you a mythical story that I am going to tell you is true.
- “Sleep is for the weak”
Paperwork is due tomorrow at noon, I haven’t looked at the lesson plan for tomorrow, but hey sleep is for the weak.
- “I probably should not have said that”
I regret everything, but oh well.
- Last but certainty not least: “I love my job!”
No explanation needed for this one!
Just keep running.
