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.

Babysitter

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!

If you could magically change things about your parents to make it better for you what would you change? For me it would be 1. Bigger allowance 2. Not have to babysit so much 3. Not having to eat food I don't like 4. No spankings
