I worked at YMCA part-time (More than a year)

Pros

You will likely work with a bunch of people your own age. It's a built in peer group. Not to mention, you're playing games all day and getting paid for it. Not a bad combination.

Cons

Kids can be a handful at times, so if you aren't a generally cheery person, this may not be the job for you. Having a full 15:1 ratio for a week can be stressful.

Advice to Management

Get everyone on the same page. While there are rules and regulations about how the camp should run, they are rarely followed, and can cause confusion and conflict.
