Over summer break I worked at a youth summer camp. This camp was for children ages 6-13 and focused on keeping the children physically active over their summer vacation. As a counselor I was responsible for creating games and activities for the campers throughout the day as well as supervise and participate in them. To make things run smoothly I used some skills that I learned in 201 about classroom management and activities. I used organizational skills such as counting to 3 to get the campers attention etc. I also used a lot of the games that I learned and incorporated them into the camp, the kids really seemed to enjoy the games so we continued to use them throughout summer.
