Best Summer Jobs

Jul 20, 2015

If we could have our way, we wouldn’t work at all in the summer. After all, the season is supposed to be about laying by the pool, going to cottages and eating ice cream, right? Unfortunately, most of us have to make some money to cover our everyday spending or save for something big (like gifts or even college tuition).

If you have to work, you might as well have a cool job. Here our Kidzworld’s picks for the best summer jobs.

Amusement Park Worker

Amusement parks are so much fun! If you worked at one you could spend your days in the sun (major perk) plus you probably get free entry into the park on your days off.

Movie Theatre Concession Employee

Who doesn’t love the smell of freshly popped popcorn? Most movie theatre employees get to watch as many movies as they want for free plus you might be able to snag bites of popcorn every now and then.

If you like being around little kids, try babysitting. Most babysitters get to do fun things with their clients, such as head to the pool or go for ice cream. Why not get paid for something you’d already be doing?!

Camp Counsellor

Summer camp is a blast. Most camps will pay their counsellors (although some are volunteer-based) in addition to providing room and board. Although you will be responsible for a group of kids, you will get to do fun stuff like go canoeing, make crafts, eat tons of cookies and have campfires!

Okay so basically I used to go to this school and I met some of the people who I wish to be life long friends with. Problem: All of them go to a different school Problem: I go to a dumb boarding school and only get to spend 1 day and a half with them when i come back on fridays before I leave to go to school on Sundays. I really hate this school too. My sister graduated high school from here and my other sister is in her last year here. After this year I'm going to be all alone at this school. I'll have to be going here for the next seven years since its a middle and high school and I'm only in middle school. Plus my sisters are the best students there. Every time I tell people I'm the sister of Stephanie and Siri,they automatically have high expectations of me. But mainly,I just want to know how to keep in touch with my best friends. We can't even have phones at school so I can't talk to them during the week. [s:sm3/1jw0]

I understand how hard this must be. Because I should probably take this advice too.. I would try and focus on school lessons and ignore others. Don't be afraid to join a club! If you go to one that interests you then you might meet someone with common interests. I hope you get through this.
