During teh 2008/2009 school year I nannyed for a family while attending college in MA. They had 2 children ages 1 and 3. My duties included preparing dinner, bathing the children, light cleaning, and putting the children to bed. They were allowed to watch 30 minutes of televsion a day so we did arts and crafts, bubbles, chalk, reading, puzzles, and imaginary games. I was also a camp counselor at a Christian summer camp on the beach in Maine. On average I lead groups of 10 - 20 campers (ages 1 - 13) through camp to different activities. For about 2 hours each day I taught them bible stories, sang songs, lead arts and crafts, and served them lunch. I was with campers 8 hours a day, 6 days a week, for 9 weeks. I have done this for 3 years now.
