“I really enjoyed working with children in the outdoors, and being so close to Yosemite national park. Also free housing and meals was such a great way to save money. ”

“It was very relaxing watching the playground everyday, and occasionally patrolling it. I also got to play ping-pong with guests and had interesting conversations with them.”
