    A high adventure summer camp for kids with ADD, ADHD, and learning disabilities. I started working as a staff working with one group of eight kids ages 8-10 years old for 12 days at a time. We went camping, hiking, climbing, and white water rafting. My second summer I worked with 18-25 year olds teaching life skills: communication skills, money management, anger management skills, and problem solving skills. For 18 days at a time. The last three summer I worked there I was the Course Director for the Academic Discovery program. A 26 day course for 11-18 year olds where they work on study skills as well as life skills. We take them backpacking, climbing, camping, caving, rappelling, and white water rafting. We also have more school based field trips to historic sights in the area, a nature center, and a science museum. I am in charge of 8-12 staff, 4 groups, and 32 kids.

    I loved my time working with a cuddly 7 year old boy and a charming 11 year old girl. Making breakfast, taking them to school and after school activities, and sometimes making dinner. When the parents had to work late or had a date night I would make sure the kids were showered and them put them to bed. The little girl liked to read herself to sleep but with the little boy I would read him bedtime stories and then stay with him until he fell asleep.
