Productive working environment that provided me the opportunity to learn and develop several skills
Associate Director (Former Employee) – Moultonboro, NH – October 8, 2014
Working at Camp Winaukee allowed me to fully understand my ability to learn new skills. I started as a Camp Counselor at 18 years old and worked diligently to eventually be put in a position where my decisions impacted the organization on a large scale. I learned to program 8 weeks of activities for approximately 400 campers, focusing specifically on programing the daily activities of a group of 175 children aged 13-15. I developed the ability to effectively manage a multi-cultural staff in an organization that represents approximately 25 nations. I learned how to coordinate all departments within the organization to function as one unit as well as coordinate events with other camps in the states of New Hampshire and Maine.
A typical day at work was extremely busy, as I would be the first person up to ensure the campers that were leaving for tournaments were up and that their counselors had the right medical gear, meals, and contingency funds for their trip. I would then begin to coordinate the daily activities on site. A typical day would start at 7:00am and finish around 9:00pm. The hours put in daily and without much time off is the most difficult part of the job. However, working with a multi-cultural staff and great co-workers on a beautiful lake is very enjoyable.
Beautiful work site, great co-workers, sport environment
