Wolf Creek Camp

Counselor/Tutor

June - July 2019 • Fredericksburg, TX

What I liked

While frustrating, working with the children was rewarding.

What I wish was different

Management had issues from the start. Issues over scheduling turned into full-flung shouting matches with threats of physical violence. A culture of homophobia existed among camp directors, with LGBT teens made to feel unwanted and ostracized. The initial contract had promised a single 24-hour period off every week- this only occurred once in the five week work period. Emergency sick days were deducted from pay, near consistent staff turnover, they lacked insurance on commercial buses transporting children...the list of ills with this organization are numerous.

Advice

Do not take this job- corners are cut to a dangerous degree and constructive criticism is punished. If you do take this job, get everything in writing as verbal promises are not kept.
