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?
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.
