Get to Know Audrey Cooney

Camp Counselor at the C.W. Avery Family YMCA

audreyTell us a little bit about yourself, Audrey.
I have worked for the Y for over a year now in many different roles, including Kidz Zone Counselor, K-Kidz Assistant, Kidz Korner Attendant, Birthday Party Attendant and Summer Camp Counselor.

Last year was my first year as a camp counselor, and it was so much fun and extremely rewarding. I look forward to coming to the Y every day and making the children’s summer the “best summer ever!”

What’s your favorite part of YMCA Summer Camp? 
My favorite part of camp is all of the special events we do, such as Bubble Soccer and Wheel of Wisdom. Every day at camp is fun and a new adventure, but the days we have something special are the absolute best. The kids get very excited to have their turn, and the counselors join in and have fun too!

Describe your philosophy as a camp counselor in three words.
Kids come first.

What’s a fun fact that most people don’t know about you?
This position means the world to me because I hope to become an elementary school teacher one day, and this job gives me so much insight into how kids behave and how to relate to them.

The Sandlot.
