Be a role model and love kids!
Just think about this: you want your son or daughter to have a blast in summer and you make the piggy bank to go off and take all of your year savings to pay for a 4 weeks break of school at an American Summer Camp . You promise he/she is going to have skilled counselors to play with and learn from as amazingly experienced suport staff that cook yummy food and smile all the time. Sometimes, kids and parents find grumpy or not very trustable staff which makes a summer horrible. What parents expect from you as a counselor or as a support staff is that you display skills and experience and above all CHARISMA to work with kids.
But how can we show this to them?
First of, remember that Camp directors will check at your application. They want to have the best of the best staff for their kids and no doubt you are one of those. Then remember to put any job or experience in your application related to children or any previous job.
At the "Work experience with children and qualifications related to working with children" section, take time enough to think about all of your previous experiences with this lovable people. Think about your social service while in high school, teaching a few lessons to neighbours, any other social service work out perfectly.**
