As a Group Leader/Camp Counselor I had to manage the classroom environments of the kids ages 8 to 13 and make sure everyone is safe and were able to fit in and accepted by all students. Along with my colleagues, we overlooked the safety of the kids and made sure everyone participated and felt welcome in any activity they were in. The hardest part of the job throughout the two months was an experience I had seeing that a camper was being bullied and felt left out during certain activities in the classroom.
I spoke to the camper and gathered the kids that were bullying him and spoke to the as a group explaining what they were doing was bullying and is not right. I then made sure he felt welcomed and was able to participate in all activities rather than being left out.
