Yosemite Sierra Summer Camp

Activity Specialist

June - August 2018 • Bass Lake, CA

What I liked

I love the environment here! It is so welcoming and has a great community. Everyone supports each other so well. One of the best ways that the staff is cared for is through Staff Reload during weekday mornings. It is a time for staff to gather for worship, fellowship, or a spoken word. Every decision the camp directors make is very intentional, with the camper's and staff's wellbeing in mind, which makes it easy to work for and support their ministry.

What I wish was different

Nothing, this is a job that tends to defy employees expectations.

Advice

Remember that this experience will grow you just as much if not more than some of these kids in ways you would never expect.
