I grew up at this camp and always dreamed about being a counselor there. Although it is hard work, it is an amazing experience. The best part was that I was able to help the kids in my bunk have the same if not better amazing experience that I had.
Coming from across the world is very intimidating. I was worried about what it would be like to work at an American Summer Camp. I found this camp to be brilliant. I met lots of great people. Made friends with mates I will have forever, even traveled after camp with some of them. I would most definitely recommend CYJ.
I had heard about CYJ from a lot of friends and family. After working there for two summers, I soon learned that it was even better than what they described. After studying education at college all year, I learned more by working directly with kids. Camp will look great on my resume.
