YMCA Paid Camp Counselor=CAS(Action)?

Hi guys,

Hope you IB year is going well!

I am pretty much done with m CAS hours but I still need 30ish hours of action, I only have like 15. I was looking at ideas on a random website and it said you could get hours working as a camp counselor. This threw me off because I thought you couldn't use paid jobs as CAS. After further reading this is only stated for service hours which should be common sense but I was wondering if this is true. I work at the YMCA as an after school camp counselor and I can tell you now that there is a lot of action being done. I have actually become a better athlete from it. So I was wondering what you guys thought. I am going to ask my TOK teacher but I am currently on a snowday (workday).

Thanks for the help!

Generally any time you are paid for anything, it cannot be counted as CAS, even if you cured an entire village of starving impoverished children of malaria and built them all brand new houses with plumbing and electricity and taught them to play basketball but were paid for your efforts.
