Dear Ms. Burton:
RE: Junior Day Camp Counsellor
I wish to apply for the position of Junior Day Camp Counsellor at Camp
Wannabe as advertised on a flyer in the guidance office at my high school.
I love summer camp. Until last year, I spent a month of every summer as
a camper at Camp Lotsafun, a residential camp for kids. Over my years
there I learned over 100 camp songs. During my last summer as a Counsellor
in Training, I learned how to set an example for the younger campers and
to be a positive role model. I was often responsible for planning and
leading games and crafts activities. Being a leader was a great learning
opportunity for me. I developed a strong sense of responsibility
something every counsellor needs.
As you can see from my attached resume, I will be finishing grade 10 in
June and would be available to work all summer, full-time. I think I would
make an excellent day camp counsellor and I look forward to hearing from
you about an interview. My telephone number is (250) 555-3333.
