A lot of the time I will babysit my younger cousins, but I have volunteered every year, for the past two years, at a summer camp called “Camp Whittle,” up in Big Bear, CA, as a Counselor In Training . My job while up there was to make sure everyone in my cabin was safe and that the kids in my cabin had fun. This last summer I had a particularly difficult group of kids, and what made it even more difficult was that out of the two CITs and one counselor in the cabin, I was the only one with any previous experience. This proved to be difficult and frustrating most of the times, but it also gave me a chance to show off my leadership skills. In my cabin I had kids who needed to go to the nurse's office for eye drops every night after campfire, but Read more the kids hated getting them. So what I promised them was that every night, after they got their eye drops, we would stop on a bridge in the middle of the meadow, turn off our flashlights and look up into the dark, night sky. I showed them constellations, planets and where the Milky Way was. I’d also tell the kids to listen to the melodic sounds of nature that surrounded them and to smell the fragrant scent of the pine trees that surrounded the meadow. I wanted the children to experience nature in some of its purest forms. All of the kids in that group loved doing this every night because it was something they rarely got to see at home. One kid in particular, named Isaiah really enjoyed seeing the stars every night and whenever he felt homesick, he would look up into the sky and return to his happy joyful self. In the beginning I thought he was gonna be the worst kid in the cabin, but he ended up being one of the sweetest kids i have ever meet. That is why I volunteer at “Camp Whittle”, to give kids an experience they may not get at home that will hopefully positively influence their lives.
