Matthew’s Bio

I volunteered at the Best Buddies summer camp school for 4 years working with the special needs (physical and mental) with the other caretakers which included feeding, general care, activities, keeping them occupied and safe, readying for transportation etc. I mostly worked with the same group of kids which mostly consisted of 10+ children in wheelchairs and 2+ with more mobile function. Most of the day is held in one large school room where we played games, fed them multiple times a day, changed and took them to the restrooms, and took them out for social activities and physical activities. At the beginning and end of the day we would pick them up for the day and prepare them to go home back onto the buses at the end. I worked with the other caretakers and was more specialized in the engagement, movement, feeding, and physical activity of the kids. At the time I was to young to change the kids but everything else I was a part of. Most of my time was either in the large room with everyone or taking one or two of the kids out with other caretakers for feeding or physical activity or social games. Im very patient with the kids and can be a friend more than anything.
