Hello, my name is Carlee and I am 22 years old. I have 11 years of experience working with children of all ages. Whether I was; watching my neighbors children and/or pets while they went on date nights or a weekend get-away, spending 3 Summers as a “Junior Counselor” at Camp xx( an overnight summer camp), 6 Summers as “Head/Senior Counselor” at the same camp (Camp xx).
