Interview: Camp Waitress

Meira Feinman

At breakfast, lunch, and dinner, waitresses make sure hungry campers and staff members receive the yummy food the kitchen cooked up for them. To find out what the job is really like, Mishpacha Junior spoke to Sara L. and Rikki P., head waitresses at Camp Shira in Monticello, NY.

MJ: Is a camp waitress like a waitress in a restaurant?

SL, RP: They do bring you food like in a restaurant — and the food tastes as good as in a restaurant. But otherwise, a camp waitress’s job is different: they don’t take orders like in a restaurant, but they do bring you free doubles and triples. And bunks can cheer for their waitress in camp, which you can’t do in a restaurant!

 

MJ: That’s true! So each bunk has its own waitress?

SL, RP: Yep! Overall, there are 21 bunks (several bunks for each age), plus tables for staff, and separate dining rooms for teen campers and senior staff. The bunk really gets to know their waitress and has fun making up funny songs and nice compliments to cheer for her when she comes in with the food. The waitress also gets to know the bunk — all the kids’ names and what they like and don’t like to eat.
