Meet Camp Counselor: Ryan Kent

This is Ryan’s second summer as a counselor at the Southern Saratoga YMCA! We are so thrilled to have him back on our team for the best summer yet!

What do you like about working at camp?

It is fun and it feels good to help kids and meet people!

Summer Camp is important because…

It gives kids a safe place where they can be happy and be themselves and provides a haven if they have No one at home to watch them during the day. It also teaches them valuable lessons while keeping them entertained and giving them memories to last a lifetime. It also gives a bond between kids and their counselors and even the counselors learn a lot!

Finish this sentence: Because of the Y…

I have made so many friends and learned valuable life lessons. I have made an impact on many people and felt good about myself while doing so.

What do you do outside of the Y?

I like to hang out with my friends, drawing, biking and walking, reading about history, etc.

What excites you the most about this summer?

The time I will spend with my co-workers and kids and the expertise I will learn for the future!
