I would have to continuously supervise children of all ages, play games, go swimming, etc. Every Wednesday, the entire camp would go on an outing (water slides, Centre de la Nature, Funtropolis, etc) where strict supervision was required. Fridays were themed (pajama day, Halloween day, etc) and each age group would have their own set of activities, organized by the monitors. There would also be swimming, for 45 minutes a day. If it were a nice day, we would go to the park, play soccer outside and have other activities arranged (water balloons for instance, if children were age appropriate).
Through this job, I learned how difficult it is to take care of children, but also how fun it could be. I became more organized, patient, and creative. Co-workers were very fun and animated. We would sing at the beginning and end of a camp day. Also, the end of the summer, we would all organize a dance.
The hardest and most enjoyable part of the job was working with children. As one can imagine, children can be very stubborn, and difficult to work with, since they don't always listen. With that said, they were also the best part of my job. Playing with them and spending 5 days a week with them and getting to know them was an amazing experience.
