Reflections on an impromptu sing-along

“It was very early in the morning and I was at the tail end of a long overnight shift. About four youth were up in the common room and teasing me as usual about how I am like a camp counsellor. For some reason, they got that “read” off of me. This led them into singing some camps songs around the table, most of which I recognized. It was a cheesy scene to witness but just one of those sweet moments I cherish in this job. Our shifts are busy, overwhelming and at times there are very sad or difficult. When we have some impromptu sing-alongs like this I feel like the tough times make these moments sweeter. ”   –  Lucy, Youth Worker
