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.
Working as a summer camp counselor at the Y is absolutely life-changing. Excellent company culture and energizing, fulfilling work! It is an extremely difficult job to do without a passion for childcare, and many locations are very remote and inaccessible, but the work experience is worth it.
