How to be a Professional
As a staff member at Camp Jewell, my shirt says that I am a “professional role model”. This is a huge responsibility that I love to live up to every day. Being surrounded by other “professional role models” and truly enjoying the job I wake up to in the morning, it makes it easy to fulfill my duties here as the Ropes Coordinator. Now, as I think about my role here, I have discovered that I am more than just a professional role model, but I am a professional at many other things;
LIT Highlight
Christine Bapiste, 13, attends East Hartford Middle School. She is a student of many interests and talents, including reading biography and mystery books. She has been playing the baritone for seven years and has been a girl scout for four years. Christine has exhibited the Y core values with such joy and ease; her enthusiasm and eagerness to be a part of the program is evident. At camp, Christine worked with a group of 4+5 year olds called the Explorers. She took on the task and exceeded our expectations. She even asked to continue working after the scheduled time! Christine is always willing to help out and go the extra mile.
"I love the experience of working with the kids and influencing their behavior. Also I think the LIT program has help me to be a better leader so that I can make an impact on my community.” >>>
