Camp Alamisco Counselor, Archery director, Paintball director, Boys director and Assistant director
It was a summer Job from May to July. I skipped one year in 2013. I started out as a counselor and archery director. I did that from 2009-11. Being a counselor, I stayed with the kids every night for a week. I took care of them. As the archery director, I took care of the bows and arrows. I made sure no one got hurt or injured while I was there. As the paintball director, I cleaned the markers and masks each day. Playing paintball can be unsafe so it was my job to make sure that no one was injured beyond the normal welts that happen while playing. As the boys director I was in charge of all the guys counselors. I was there to help the counselors in anyway I could. It was my job to make theirs as easy as possible, but also discipline if it was needed. As the assistant director, I was in charge of helping to run the camp smoothly. I made sure there were directors at their activities and the kids were all there and accounted for each activity. As the assistant director I had to make sure everything was ready each day and prepared for anything that might happen at any moment.
