    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.

    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'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.
