Director's Message

Kiron Mukherjee, ROMKids Coordinator & Camp Director

Camp Director, Professional Camp Counsellor, But Most Of All, A Doorman

There’s a lot about my job that I love. I love collaborating with our volunteers, assistants and instructors to build our programs; I love seeing our campers’ eyes light up when they meet our Futalognkosaurus; I love buying craft materials for campers to turn into gallery-themed masterpieces… but the part of my job that I treasure most is holding the door at the end of the day during Summer Club.

The practical reasons for being a doorman are to make sure kids leave safely escorted, and to be available to talk to any parents with questions at the end of the day. But the fun part is listening to all the kids tell their parents what they did that day in such animated, excited ways. Some memorable quotes:

“Today I learned that birds are actually dinosaurs, so tomorrow can you make me a dinosaur chicken sandwich for lunch?”

“This morning we went to Egypt and this afternoon we went to China, so now I’m too tired!”

“MOM! Did you know that dinosaurs pooed and I touched a poo today?”

It’s amazing to see how much fun ROM kids have here.

When the last day of camp inevitably rolls around, I love bringing out my guitar to sing one last round of “The Cat Came Back” and “Blackfly” (if you’ve been in the theatre on a Summer Club morning you’ll know what songs I’m talking about). Though we’re all sad to say our last goodbyes for the Summer, it’s always nice to hear the kids continue singing as they get out the door, their parents laughing and often saying, “see you next year!” or “we’re already signed up for Saturday Club”.

Truly, the best part about holding the door at the end of the day is seeing our ROMKids community continue to grow. Recognizing the kids and parents year after year really lets us know we’re doing something right. Being a part of these kids’ lives as they grow up is a tremendous honour.
