    I worked at Camp Fire Columbia part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Decent pay, easy hours, fun activities, good coworkers. It's a fun job where you get to work with kids without having to be a regular teacher. In after school, you can do more fun activities rather than all learning. The kids are great. Recess is fun. It pays better than other part time jobs. My immediate supervisor was great.

    Cons

    No summer employment and the pay isn't enough to get you through summer. They don't offer full time work to most employees, so you need another job, but then they have mandatory meetings every month. Sometimes the amount of children per class is too high and hard to manage, especially when there are high needs students in the classroom. Food was terrible. Lesson planning was required but highly unnecessary and ineffectual. Classrooms weren't provided so instructors were at the mercy of teachers to allow use of the classrooms, and many teachers don't like to share. In after school, we have no access to school nurse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the mandatory meetings. Give more money to programming and instructors. Provide additional help for high needs students. Make arrangements with schools for assigned classrooms.
