I worked at an outdoor camp and just had so much fun. It was really relaxed and you just got to show kids how wonderful nature was, swim, and then we would all ride a bus back to the local middle-school. There we would have lunch and then procede to play games with the kids until their parents came to pick them up. A counselor would work half the day.
The ymca is unorganized, hires youth with no experience, does not pay well, allows parents to override their decisions, and does not have the necessary materials to carry out their program.
Will work with your schedule
Loved working here. The only thing was the pay. Besides that great opportunity especially if you like dealing with kids. I went on fun field trips but they watch your hours like a hawk. If they paid more I would go back in a New York Minute.
Field trips, easy routes, summer camp
Little pay, little to no raises
I was a new counselor for YMCA summer camp and they did not provide me with any training. I was responsible for 30 first graders and was overwhelmed at first, but my co-counselors and managers were always supportive. I worked long shifts, but the kids were fun.
I loved working here part-time. Great work environment, great co-workers and management. Okay pay for part-time work. Pay bi-weekly. Easy to get promotion/raise.
Flexibility, great work environment
Good leadership both with students and workers were awesome. Scheduled was flexible for students and outdoor time was a plus. Counselors are wonderful and well train.
Field trip and working with students. Automatic enroll in AFLAC.
Sometimes long hours.
Love the place with enough material to do crafts with the kids, should have the choice to bring kids outside for not more than half hour specially when heat goes up, we are in the state of Florida and mostly between December and March the weather doesn't help to be outside, hardest part of work is when some kids finish homework and the rest are still working on it, we should have books for them to read, the best part of my job is the kid's recognition and the way they show they care by expressing it with cards and small notes.
Nice environment and fun workplace, love to interact with kids as a counselor. Great co workers.
The paid is not according to the responsibility, I consider a higher wage will also give motivation to counselors.
The job, overall, is really fun and the children are enthusiastic. The most enjoyable part of the day is when the parents start picking up their kids. It's enjoyable because the kids always leave with a smile on their face. That's the most rewarding part of the job.
I went there as a camper and then worked there. I loved the experience it was two different experiences but has shaped my life as a young person. My fav part is corn roast.
residence and great group of staff
When you are living there you are always on the clock.
Let me first say that while I worked at the Y I loved my job. The kids I worked with were absolutely fantastic, but the resources to help them with their emotional issues were severely lacking. I didn't feel comfortable simply submitting a report and "wiping my hands" of any other way to help. I was fired after I accidentally broke company policy (not anything major, just an ill-thought out tweet), after talking to others with similar jobs at other establishments I was told that I likely would not be outright fired for the same thing at said similar job. That part is very important. This job, while a summer camp counselor job, was held to an extremely high standard. I'd honestly suggest forgoing social media while you work there, it's a minefield. Oh and be aware that they are always watching what you are doing on the security cameras, and even if the kids are having fun it is possible that what they are doing "looks bad on camera." That's just food for thought. I'm not trying to discourage anyone from working there, it's just important that you pay attention to what is expected of you from the get-go.
Great kids, cool coworkers, fun field trips
Poor ability to help said kids, sweeping corporate policy with little room for error
Coworkers are very friendly. Everyone is accepting and inclusive. Upper management is questionable in some departments. Not much room to grow unless working for years; felt like a dead-end job. The pay was also questionable.
Getting to work in the mornings.
Not enough pay.
Morning and after school care programs were loose and extremely laissez-faire causing disruptions and inability to properly run program before old site supervisor was replaced with someone who really meant business. Rules were enforced and many employees were used to being paid to do nothing and literally sit on their bums all shift, so this change brought unrest and many employees quit due to enforcing of rules. However, things have run much smoother since new supervisor joined and it is a much better place to work where we actually help the students learn curriculum and enrich their minds.
Loved the children and the parents.The opportunity to work in their lives to give a better life experience for the present and the future. Practiced and learned new ideas, crafts, social interaction with the children as well as the younger employees.
The negatives far out weighed the positives because of employees and management of the location that I worked at. Bad work ethic environment. Untrustworthy and dishonest employees and management. Very clicky and like high school games going on with staff and management.
