I have been working at ESF Camps part-time for less than a year

Pros

LOTS of activities offered, high energy from everyone, kids are very excited to be there, the directors at this camp knows how to run a camp, family flings, and literally so much more (rock wall, plays, art, engineering, photography, sports, swimming pool, quest challenges, etc. etc. etc.) If you like working with kids, this is the place to go. I've worked at a summer camp before, and it was no where near as exciting as this one.

Cons

Hot, hot, hot, and humid summer days spent partially (sometimes mainly) outdoors. Days can seem long and draining. OK pay.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management works well. I have zero complaints for any of the directors or even staff.

    Pros

    Children love the end product. Staff is fun loving and energetic

    Cons

    Management is terminally late on deliverables. Organizational culture is cult like. Repetative propoganda leads to a blind employee loyalty. Diversity is dismal at best. Owners exploit their human capital for company gain. Management is entrechened and change adverse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None! They already have wise counsel which they ingnore
