“I have been working here for about 7 years. I needed a job and I emailed the Camp Director at the time. She hired me for Summer Camp and I also started working in the after school program during the year. I continued doing both throughout the years. I enjoy so many things about working at the Y. I enjoy seeing the kids every day and seeing them smile and interact. I’ve also made a lot of good friends working here. I like that the Y is a huge staple in the community and I get to be a part of that. Right now, I’m going to school to be a teacher and by getting experience in camp and after care, I’m bettering myself. This year, camp is a little different and we’re working to create an enjoyable experience for the campers and the staff. The first day, I asked the kids as they were leaving if they had fun, and they gave me a big ‘yea.’ It’s good to know that they are having fun.”
