    Working at YMCA-YWCA Camp Stephens was the best summer job, and the only summer job I’ve ever had as I worked there for a number of years. From working as a consellor to guiding canoe trips this place offered challenges and experienced that forstered personal growth for me and surely for the youth I was working with. Next to my family I credit this camp to helping form who I am today as a person. Amazing experience on an island on Lake of the Woods where I forged lifelong friendships and even where I met my husband.
