    Former Employee - Summer Camp Counselor in Mill Creek, WA (US)
    Former Employee - Summer Camp Counselor in Mill Creek, WA (US)

    I worked at YMCA part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Working with children is extremely rewarding and presents unique experiences and challenges every day. They do a great job of hiring young, energetic counselors who are fun people to work with. Great summer job for high school or college students

    Cons

    The YMCA does not have the funding that many other organizations have for summer camp due to their dedication to including children from all types of backgrounds. The counselor to camper ratio is often at the legal maximum which can be stressful to manage especially when that includes children with disabilities.

    I worked at YMCA part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    You will likely work with a bunch of people your own age. It's a built in peer group. Not to mention, you're playing games all day and getting paid for it. Not a bad combination.

    Cons

    Kids can be a handful at times, so if you aren't a generally cheery person, this may not be the job for you. Having a full 15:1 ratio for a week can be stressful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get everyone on the same page. While there are rules and regulations about how the camp should run, they are rarely followed, and can cause confusion and conflict.
