Staff Testimonial

I worked as a group assistant for three weeks in the summer and had the most amazing experience. It was challenging, rewarding, enjoyable and informative. It was physically and mentally challenging because you are always incredibly busy, but you got home after a long day excited for the next. Being surrounded with so many lovely people as your colleagues was a big help and made the experience so much more enjoyable; friendships were created as a result. Everyone worked so well as a team and learnt from each other of a daily basis. There was never a day that I didn't learn something new. I gained unbelievable amounts of confidence during my time at camp and would recommend it to anyone who wishes to seek experience working in a child centred environment. I fully intend on re-applying for easter and summer again this year with the hope that it will be just as fun as last season.
