A typical day at the YMCA was occupied with a large variety of activities. Making sure the children had safe but fun things to do was very crucial at the summer camps. These children were at these camps for longer than they would've been at school, so making sure that they had food to eat and proper clothing, sunscreen, hats, etc. was something the volunteers and counsellors had to be aware of. When there is 3 times as many kids as there are workers, it can become tiring. With excellent team work and good initiative though, we were able to stay authoritative but also enjoy ourselves tremendously. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to get their volunteer hours.
