Staff Testimonials


"I fell in love with YMCA Camp Sequoia Lake last summer. It challenged me as a counselor and it challenged me personally. YMCA has taught me to be more patient and compassionate. It also has prepared me for future summers because I worked with all age groups except for the youngest. I got to experience how their different developmental stage posed different challenges. Additionally, last summer I had the experience of being on program staff. Although it was short, I got experience picking up/dropping off food for the overnighters, driving the truck, and during training week I learned a lot about trees. I look forward to the possibility of being on staff next year because I feel like these experiences will strengthen and build on my skills. (For example, open communication, punctuality, ensuring safety, and leading games, team building exercises, and campfires.) Ultimately, I feel like my previous experiences will affect my future confidence level and understanding of how the camp works. I will be more knowledgeable coming back onto the staff team." -Counselor

"Just wanted to say Hi, hope everything is going well, I'm pretty sure that you are doing better than anyone else as always. Say hi for me to all the staff and volunteers please (all the coolest people I've ever met). I'm missing camp this year every day of this summer. I grew up and improved my life without fear when I was there. I'm stronger, smarter and now I know that I can make it and chase my dreams if I want to. Thanks to all of them and to you for making me feel like I wasn't alone." - Email from a previous staff member
