    Fantastic Leadership Experience

    Camp Director (Former Employee) Santa Ana, CA

    Pros-The kids are a joy to work with, you get to work out in the sun, be active, and you're teaching sports.
    -Great opportunity to make a significant difference on kids' lives. A lot of kids that come in do not initially play sports, but this is your chance to have that impact and not only teach them sports skills, but life skills as well.
    -Easy hours (mostly 9am-1pm, sometimes 9am-3pm) so you have opportunity to work somewhere else as well

    Cons-Some of the kids can be a little hard to work with, but the good kids make the job so rewarding
    -Don't forget to wear sunscreen
    -Get comfortable teaching sports you may not know as well.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you're doing. Perhaps send emails to the directors and coaches with tips and advice to help them throughout the week.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    It was good for a high school student, but is only an okay summer job.

    Coach (Former Employee) Seattle, WA

    ProsSummer job only, get experience working with kids, design your own day (more or less), early exit time (usually before 4pm).

    ConsNot very competitive pay, not a lot of room for growth.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIncrease salaries year to year for coaches.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Fun summer job.

    Camp Director (Current Employee) San Jose, CA

    ProsGet to work outdoors, nobody really watching over you so you can basically do what you want.

    Not a very good job for me

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsA lot of the kids are great to work with and I had a good time with some of the kids.

    ConsParents, and management. You have to pay for your gas, and it adds up to be more then your paycheck

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay your coaches better, where does all this camp money go. It is ridiculously awful

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Counselor

    Pros-Good if you are a self starter
    -Given a lot of responsibility
    -Rewarding working with kids
    -Fun to work outside
    -Most of the time you worked with good coworkers

    Cons-Pay isn't too high, but ok for a high school summer job
    -Some kids can be problems
    -Some coworkers could be lazy which makes your job harder

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue supporting counselors. Have counselors work in similar teams throughout summer to build good working relationship with each other.

    Great job for people who love sports and kids!

    Coach (Former Employee) Portland, OR

    ProsGreat to be able to coach outdoors in the sun, get the opportunity to be around kids all day long, able to be active and play sports along with the kids, and the supervisors are enjoyable to work with.

    ConsJob requires quite a bit of travel depending on where you get assigned for the week (and you pay for your own gas) and pay is a little low (min. wage) for amount of responsibility we are given.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAllow people who coach multiple sports to be able to rotate to different sports instead of just coaching one of them all summer.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
