Pros

Tons of fun. I made some amazing friends while working for Guided Discoveries. I am still close with several of them. My co-workers were some of the best people I have met.

Cons

Hours are horrible and inconsistent for instructors, and some of the other positions aren't much better. Pay is very low, though room and board is included so it keeps your costs down. Management dealt with issues (even SAFETY issues) if and when they felt like it. Employees who were not upper management are tossed to the curb if they are injured or would like to have a family status other than 'single'.

    I have been working at Guided Discoveries as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The culture is very positive and healthy. Kids at these camps are encouraged to be themselves and interact with others to form lasting friendships.

    Cons

    This can be a very draining job. You must be able to put yourself out there in front of kids.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!
