At the YMCA I worked with the day camp kids and I also worked with them at Vandenboom on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Day camp kids are much older than the daycare kids. They are 6-11 years old. Day camp kids are really fun to hang around. We play lots of games with the kids like basketball, card games and we also make lots of arts/crafts.

The younger kids at Vandenboom are very funny and very entertaining. They run around the classroom like animals in a jungle, but you got to love them. I especially like the blue room which is up to a year old or when the parents chose to move them up to the purple room. That room is peaceful except when the babies are crying.
I do a lot of maintenance work at Vandenboom when I am not with the kids. I've helped paint almost every door to the classrooms. I've washed walls, painted kiddie chairs and spray painted hopscotch on the ground outside. All of the staff loves our fantastic work.
I have never worked with kids this young so this is all new to me. The staff has been really helpful to get us used to the kids.
