A typical day at work would start off with welcoming the campers into camp and then go off to our morning assembly. Then we would go to our first of many of our daily activities. Over the course of the summer, I learned how to create a fun, safe, and positive day for my campers, and how to take on a more leadership role. Personally, I think that the management took us for granted. We do so much work behind the scenes when they aren't observing us and go out of our way for our kids who come from wealthy families. For the junior counselor position, some of our co-workers with higher paying positions make the junior counselors do work that they don't want to do because they don't feel like doing it. Those jobs would include, getting the campers snack, taking them to get water, taking them to the nurse, and heating up their food in the microwave if they (counselor[s]) have already started eating. Since seating is limited, many junior counselors including myself would have to stand or sit farther away from our campers. When asked why we are sitting/standing farther away from our campers by superiors, we would tell them that there is no room for us to sit closer to them and they would shrug it off and continue checking on other campers.
Free lunch and great kids
NO breaks from the children, not even for lunch, no gratitude towards employees
