Summer Camp Counselor

May - July 2019 • Kennesaw, GA

What I liked

I enjoyed the experience of working with kids. My coworkers were also great. It was a STEM based camp, so I even learned a lot about different computer programs and softwares.

What I wish was different

I wish it had been better organized, a lot of it was experimentation and when there are kids involved, it makes me nervous to not have good procedures in place. We will have new management next year so I hope it will improve.

Advice

Anyone with the goal of K-12 education should look at getting a similar job. The experience may help you determine that it isn't the career for you or may confirm that it is exactly what you want to be doing.
