    Disorganized and Mismanaged

    Aug 7, 2020 - REC-PAC Leader in Springfield, VA

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    -The program (Rec-PAC) is exceptionally useful to the local communities, especially for low-income families -Having camp sites based out of school buildings gives great resources like playgrounds, gymnasium space, and a cafeteria -Great experience for young adults looking to build a resume of working with kids

    Cons

    -Training is brief and insufficient and staff who have never worked with children prior are expected to be ready to manage a group of up to 18 -Resources (art supplies, games, etc) are tight and it is often not possible for sites to get more should supplies run low, break, or get lost. -Staffing is done inconsistently, with some sites being assigned far too many leaders and some being perpetually understaffed despite being at (or above) camper registration capacity. -Surplus site leaders are not formally let go, but are demoted to on-call positions for the remainder of the camp period
