Greater Scranton YMCA


June - August 2019 • Scranton, PA

What I liked

I loved working with the kids there! Teaching them ways to form bonding skills with their fellow campers was exciting and fun, and getting to see everyone's different backgrounds was inspiring. The job was very rewarding, and I felt that it was very important to be a positive role model for the children because for some of them the YMCA camp is the best part of their summer. The staff was extremely nice and everyone in the building was very helpful if you had any questions that needed to be answered.

What I wish was different

I wish the job started earlier in the summer.


You never know what someone's home life is like, so when you are present with the children at this camp it's extremely important to be the best possible version of yourself that you can be. Go out of your way to form bonds with each child to let them know that they are important and matter to you!
