Fun and great place to work for
Recreation Therapist, CTRS (Former Employee) – Decatur, GA – September 15, 2017
A normal work day started with preparing for the kids to come home from school and starting a recreation group with them or helping get them settled in the cottage after school. After groups were over, we would go and prepare the gym for "Teen Center". Teen Center, allowed the residents to have social time after chores and school work was done. The could play basketball, billiards, go to the library, use the computers, or watch television.
While working for UMCH, I learned many things about outdoor recreation, ropes courses, camping, and taking day trips. I also learned how to plan and budget for trips and campus wide events.
The most difficult thing that I faced while working for UMCH was getting use to camping and being in environments that I was not use to. One of the most enjoyable things about my job was, interacting with the residents on a daily basis.
Flexibility with daily schedule
