I really enjoyed the experience of working with this population. I was working with individuals with disabilities. These ranged from physical to intellectual or developmental disabilities. I loved getting to know my coworkers and campers. The activities were a lot of fun and I learned a lot about personal care.
What I wish was different
I would have liked more time off. We worked long hours and did not get a lot of time off. This is typical for a camp setting, but you could get burnt out at times.
This is an incredibly rewarding experience, especially if you are going into a field such as healthcare, behavioral management, OT or PT. Make sure you are aware of the expectations and know what you are signing up for!
