Working at the YMCA was enjoyable by how it involved getting paid to play games with kids and doing fun activities. A problem with working at the YMCA was some of the excess regulation applied to the camp. The strict environment sometimes made things uncomfortable by how the leadership of the camp micromanaged how other employees do their job. Helping out with the kids was great, but some other employees made the experience unnecessarily stressful.
A typical day for me would be walking into the room we have set for child watch, and I would turn on the computer that the parents sign in their kids on. After that I would turn on the lights and walk into the kitchen area. Here I would get all of the toys that had been sanitized the previous night, and dry them off and put them into the area they belonged. After that I would walk around and pick up things that might not have been picked up and then wait for the parents and children to arrive.
