Moral is typically terrible at the various camps. Management has no concern about this or they would not allow some of the things they do.

Report answer

The management behaves badly. If you call HR to report it, you get the run around. In fact, you get the run around for just about everything. These people are run around experts. HR, staff or the manager you ask about something will tell you that they can not reach the person they need to speak to get an answer about something. The reasons will vary meeting, events, competitions. Suddenly no one carries cell phones anymore. It is just a delaying tactic.They hope you will go away.

The camp where I worked Sandhills was filthy and rundown. There is no cleaning staff. No matter what your job you are supposed to be the cleaning staff. This is the WORST company I ever worked for. If you go to work for them expect to be taken advantage of.

This is at all camps and being a former employee i can now say that i cried most days and it was not due to the kids it was the other staff how tgey treates the kids and then the employees are but in unsafe situations. The stories I have heard from the kids of staff abusing them and the same staff as sent kids to the hospital and nothing be done. When you question what is being done you will be told to call HR, that they can not give you reasoning.

The environment is rough at first, but once you get to understand the youth it is not that bad. The only problem comes from the hierarchical structure of management where you have a 1) director of education, 2) case manager, 3) business manager, 4) behavioral coordinator, 5) Director of Operations, etc... The only problem is that everyone of them want to take charge of the instructional staff and each of them have their own ideas about how a teacher should run the classroom. So, appeasing all of them is somewhat hard to do, when everyone but the teacher has power.
