    Yay, great thread - thanks. Most of the shops I've tried to hand in CVs to told me it's too early.

    I'm going to go on holiday this summer for a week and a half. Do you think I should put that on my CV or wait until I get a job, tell them then and p*** them off?

    tell them if they ask at the interview, if not i'm sure you'll be able to arrange some time off work when the time comes.

    you help the kids out, sometimes monitor meals, help out the staff, take the kids on trips etc. basically taking care of the kids and monitoring them outside of class.

    I have no experience with kids, or any of the quaifications like lifeguard, first aid etc. what are my chances of getting in to work with kids. I worked with them for 1 week in a primary school and enjoyed myself sooooo much! I really want to do somwthihg in the summer. i live in london btw. and i want to apply for the day camps in XkEYS. hOW DO i GO ABOUT it and do you really think ill get in with my kack of expereince? :s

    you can get in, it just depends how good an impression you make. i didn't really have any experience with kids but i got offers last year.i made a good impression in the interviews and they remembered that. how to go about it is in the first post.

    I heard around this time of the year, loadsa travel agents have temporary summer jobs going...yet, I can't seem to find any in my area. Annoying.

    Has anyone heard back from Kids Klub?

    I'm not really experienced at all in any sporting activities like kayaking etc do you reckon that significantly decreases my chances of getting a job within a camp? Has anyone ever got a job in one where they don't have experience of such things?

    Here. If you can play football anad you're willing to learn why not? not all camps do kayaking and sports like that.
