This workplace had many problems when it came to shift covers. No one on the team wanted to cover shifts. The staff team often gossips about what happens at school seeing how many of the staff attend school together and they are often distracted on the deck instead of watching the patrons. Management did not accommodate post secondary students needs when it came to scheduling and they refused people work even when certifications were up to date. If they have no position for you, they offer spare staff which means you are on call for shifts and need to be there within 10-15 minutes. Not a fun workplace.

Really enjoyed my job. I would work with a variety of different children with exceptionalities. I would typically have to adapt the average camp day to my assigned camper that week. I made sure to make camp as fun and accommodating to the camper as I could.

Was a volunteer position so pay was not given, but was enjoyable enough and fun to go to. Woke up at 7:00 AM or earlier each day to start at 9:00 AM. Needed the extra time to get ready and walk to the school it was at. Learned how to be more responsible, patient, understanding, and more of a leader.
Pros
Having fun with the kids
Cons
Cold Management staff (the counsellors)
