JD McCarty Center

Camp Unit Leader and Direct Care Specialist

May - July 2020 • Norman, OK

What I liked

This organization is a rehabilitation hospital and camp for children with disabilities. I loved getting to work and care for the kids that came to camp. Interacting with the campers brought such joy to my life. Not only were the campers great, but the organization as a whole is amazing and I was happy to spend my summer internship working with the JD McCarty Center

What I wish was different

Advice

You should apply to spend your summer working at camp! The JD McCarty Center is flexible in working with students who are trying to get course credit for their internships. I have worked with the JD McCarty Center for the last three summers, and this past summer I needed to have an internship due to my major. The JD McCarty Center worked with me so that I could fulfill all of my internship requirements for my class. It is an awesome place to work and spend your summer. I highly suggest that anyone thinking about applying to work here should definitely just do it!

What I liked

I loved being able to work with special needs kids and let them experience the joys of summer camp just like any other kid would. The joy and the happiness they were able to have at camp was amazing and heartwarming.

What I wish was different

I wish camp would have been longer because I had so much fun!

Advice

To enjoy every moment working with the kids because summer ends so fast. Also to become friends with the other camp counselors and keep in contact with them after camp.
