Strategic Statement:

The interviewer may not really be interested in the specifics of the responsibility, but more on the lesson learned.

Sample Response:

Responsibilities reflect a supervisory assurance that you can do a good job, and a trust that you are able to handle the task. As a result, they should be accepted with gratitude. I was responsible for 50 high school students on a week-long camping trip. I learned the value of delegation and organization.
