Sindy blogs about her plan to work as a camp counselor this summer! What are your summer job plans?

May 11, 2006

Since I last blogged I've really been working on putting my camp counselor plan into action! I've worked on my resume and added all my new work experience to it. Next thing on my list is to start applying for jobs.

Kidzworld member, llama lover suggested I start out working at a day camp, which I may end up doing. I'm not sure yet. I kind of like the idea of heading away for the summer - taking a break from my family and my always-too-busy boyfriend. I just think what I need right now is to meet new people and try new things, you know?

I'm thinking of applying at camps that are totally remote. I'd love to spend my summer on a mountain lake, teaching kids to swim and singing around the campfire every night! I am still a little young to be a full-fledged camp counselor, but there are always junior counselor positions and they wouldn't require as much responsibility (which is fine by me!).

My mom isn't too excited about me shipping out for two whole months, but I think she'll get over it. I promised her I'd write home on a regular basis, and if she really wants, she and Amy can come and visit on Parents' Day. They could make a road trip out of it if they really wanted! If I'm off at camp all summer though, I don't know if I'll get a chance to see Simon at all. Guess I should talk to him and see what his summer plans are.

Well, I have to get my homework done before dinner so I should take off. Just wanted to give a shout out to llama lover for her feedback - I always love getting mail! What are you doing for the summer?

Peace Out,

Sindy

1 Hey Sindy,
Summer camp was awesome for me, although, I've never been a counselor they seemed to have fun too! If I were you, I might start out with day camp so you could get the feeling of spending time with kids who are fractions of your size ( I mean, like 8 year olds and stuff, I'm not mean). Then if you really love it, you might want to do over-night camps.

    I hope you don't mind that I moved this to friends, but I thought it'd be more fitting since your question seems mainly friendship based. :) Do you mind being younger than your classmates? Do you feel it inhibits your school experience? I think you should do what feels best to you, whether that be staying behind because friendship has a big impact, or continuing ahead if you prioritize academic growth. Only you know what's right for you. :p If it's any help, I left high school early and went to college. I was already used to being the youngest in my class so it wasn't a huge jump socially, and I found a lot of friends of all ages. :D With that being said, I do still miss being with people my age but it's too late to go back and I wouldn't trade my experience for the world.

    I'm 13 and will be going on to 9th grade. I skipped kindergarted  :p and 5th grade. So I'm a lot younger then most of my classmates will be. I'm thinking of repeating 8th grade so I will be more of the same age as the other people in my class. But I'm not sure if I should because I got a B+ or A- average in 8th grade. I need some advice on this. Sorry if this is the wrong section for this I just thought general was the right place. Thanks!  :D

    Thanks all of you guys for your responses. It seems many of you don't share pics to get help from friends when you're choosing. Thats OK.

    I'm a 12 year old girl with really strict parents! I do chores( even handling BLEACH sometimes) , I take care of my little brother, I'm in top set for all my classes- even on the gifted and talented register and I've only ever had 1 detention- and that was their fault anyway bc I was late( they drive). But, I'm still NEVER allowed out with my friends! My friends are all in top sets as well, are well behaved and all we literally would do is window shopping. I mean, there are my age smoking shisha and doing #####- they should be lucky I'm not a delinquent! But my parents always say I can't hang out. Not because they're worried about my safety, they just dont want me to go out.! Even sleepovers, my parents always say no because they ' haven't met the parents" but they make NO effort to do so. I'm losing out on knowing my friends better and whilst they're all making best friends, at school I'm just the person in the background- the left out friend. It hurts and most of the time I wish I was fostered or something. How can I make them loosen up? ( don't say anything about sneaking out because I chose life)
