Pros

Awesome coworkers, great kids, ok pay

Cons

Being outside, slightly incompetent team leads (less education than me) so they didn't have good management skills.

Advice to Management

Become more involved in your programs, pay attention to what your employees are telling you. We work with the kids and parents on a ground level.

    Pros

    Great first job if you are interested in working with children.

    Cons

    Low paying, company will lie to parents to cover up liabilities, company will lie to staff, make them work hours and not pay. poorly run. They will hire anyone just for the purpose of meeting ratio. They will stick anyone with those kids!

    Advice to Management

    Put the welfare of the children first


  2. Positive implementation of core values into summer camp programs
