Camp Counselor

June - August 2019 • Indianapolis, IN

What I liked

I was a camp counselor at Camp Gather and I worked with children with special needs. The opportunity to connect with these children, and be a friend was an experience I wouldn't trade for the world.

What I wish was different

I only wish that it went on longer!

Advice

It's going to be hard to get used to things at first, but stick with it, and you will be rewarded.

Camp Counselor

May - July 2018 • Indianapolis, IN

What I liked

I loved my coworkers, and the kids we worked with were amazing. We had so many beautiful experiences together as a team and I grew so much from this experience.

What I wish was different

I wish we had received better training before starting. There were a lot of moments where I felt overwhelmed and unprepared.

Advice

Work with kids, or like I did, with kids with disabilities. It is challenging, beautiful, and you will learn so many things about yourself.
