Why I am a Meriden YMCA Mountain Mist Camp Counselor...by Chantel Martin

 Chantel teaching at Musical Theater Camp

I work here to help create and see smiles on the campers’ faces as well as progressive development in each child’s talents and every day skills. Having the kids say comments to me such as "I don't want to leave because I'm learning and having so much fun here," and "Thank you for helping me. I feel more confident in myself now," is the most rewarding feeling personally. Read more of Chantel's story.
