Why are there bus counselors only for camp buses?

And not for school buses?

Is it because the guys that are bus counselors in the summer are they themselves students in the winter?
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Probably part of the reason.
Another probability; things are less under control in camp. The directors don't even know exactly who's who. So there's got to be much more supervision.

Where I am, bussing during the school year is from the district. Camp is private. District probably doesn't want to pay. Doubt camp pays them much, if at all.

Very probable they are the counselors / junior counselors of whatever camp runs that bus. So they are just doing part of the regular job requirements, not getting paid anything extra.
