One week’s pay.
$20 to $50, or the cost of one cleaning.
Yard or garden care:
$20 to $50, or the cost of one care session.
A regular caddy, the normal fee for one round. The caddy pool or “backroom” boys’ tip pool: $50 -$100 for a season.
Pool attendant or lifeguard:
$20 - $50, if permitted.
Check with the camp administration because most camp counselors are not permitted to accept tips, but a small gift from your child or your family would probably be appropriate.

$20 - $50.
