    I have been working at Bot Camp (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working with the kids is extremely rewarding, and usually there’s a notable confidence difference in the children you work with by the end of camp.
    You teach them a wide variety of robotics concepts, as well as subtly apply math and science to what they’re learning.
    You work to bring out the ideas in their head and the result is always awesome.
    Ultimate Frisbee every day! You’ll be pro by the end of the summer.

    Cons

    All staff have differing skill levels and different instructor styles, which can be both good and difficult.
    Commuting can be difficult for some instructors to some locations.
    The kids can definitely be draining, but it’s because they’re doing a lot and it can be hard to keep up.
    Ultimate Frisbee everyday! That means you might get sweaty if you’re playing your hardest.

    Advice to Management

    The training day should also train for common camper situations, more programming skills, and learn common mini-lessons instructors teach.
    Accessibility in some ways is an issue, staff are great at accommodating, but ensuring that the workspace and site can always work for all types of students and staff (even having modular solutions) is important.
