Assistant Camp Counselor (Volt alkalmazott) – Ashburn, VA – 2017, október 11.
I was able to fit into the culture at the YMCA well. The managers were nice and very understanding. If a coworker had any problem they were able to take time out of their day to answer questions and concerns.

As a summer camp counselor our days are very long. Wake the kids up at 6:30am and put them to bed at 10pm. Learned so much about good communication and dealing with children and young adults. Good management, great culture. Hardest part of the job is some of the parents. Most enjoyable is working with people I care about
Camp Counselor (Seasonal) (Volt alkalmazott) – Winter Park, FL – 2018, június 1.
I was a team leader with two other camp councilors. We were responsible for 30-60 kindergarten and first grad campers. Take attendance of campers. I made shore all children were accounted for when moving from one activities to the next. Provided a safe, nurturing and caring environment to all campers. Help campers prepare for swimming class then aid children if needed in changing (socks and tying shoes, comb hair get their belongings together).
VERY stressful watching young children all day, but it helped to have other counselors helping
Summer Camp Counselor (Volt alkalmazott) – Birmingham, MI – 2018, május 31.
Stressful, but mostly because my role as watching 15-20 young children all day. Schedule was very finicky with one or two other counselors going on frequent vacations or just not showing up. Management was happy to help with difficult children/emergencies. Mostly just following the same routine every day, so not too stressful in that regard. Pay was alright considering it was a seasonal part-time.
Great workplace, if the staff was well decided on.

I feel that in my professional opinion, that too many decisions are made based personal matters rather than professional. Positions are granted to friends and days off are allowed to ones with a close bond. But for those unlucky few to be allowed into cliques, they may as well be considered lepers.
Day Camp Counselor (Volt alkalmazott) – Augusta, MI – 2018, május 30.
The days are long and hot. usually 10 or 11 hour days. Thursdays are even longer, almost a 14 hour day. The pay was awful for the hours worked and the effort put in. I felt like when it came to management, there were almost too many counselors to have a good relationship with your supervisor. The only thing that kept me around was the children. If it was not for them the job would have never been worth it. I think this will be my most rewarding job I will ever do. There is not much that compares to working with children. If money is not an issue, I completely recommend trying this for a summer.
A job that is your home away from home! Working at the Y was really fun and engaging and came with plenty of benefits for the youth. During the hot summer days, we were also able to go home early in Fridays.

This was my very first job when I turned 16 and it was just the best. Working with the kids in camp is definitely a challenge but it is worth it. At the end of summer you realize how much fun you really had and cant wait until next summer to do it again.
