Counselor Kraus is a light turquoise and light blue fish. He wears white socks and light brown shoes. He also wears a blue scout uniform like all of his campers. He seems to look somewhat similar to the Sunny Shore Salesfish from "That's No Lady." He works as a counselor and leader to all the campers and is very friendly and optimistic.
Camp Counselor Kraus is first seen in the beginning of the episode "The Inmates of Summer" taking the kids to Sun Fun Island, not knowing at the time he left behind SpongeBob and Patrick. Kraus is not seen again until near the end of the episode where he paddles to Prison Island to get his missing two campers. He agrees to the Prison Warden to let the criminals of the Prison Island to come to Sun Fun Island.
