I worked in the gymnastics department and I only worked about 3 hours a week to just help out with the counselors. I must say, time went by incredibly slow, everyone got paid the same even coaches. Most people complain about this job because they love the kids and the job however they never get raises.
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.
