Involvement in Hartford Community

ESF Dream Camp

I have recently started working at a local after school program four days a week. The point of the program is to provide children with help in homework and playing with others while their parents are at work. The camp is for elementary school children in the East Hartford area.

the impact that the camp has had on me definitely stems from the home lives the children have had versus the home life that I was fortunate to have. I have realized how much parenting effects the development of a child.

I have also learned that small children requires discipline in order to learn and be the best that they can be. Conflict is inevitable every day in dream camp, so i have become able to problem-solve and stops arguments between campers as well as disagreements between campers and mentors (counselors).
