You would like a temporary job working in the summer camp which will run sports and outdoor activities for children and young people next summer.

  • say what experience and skills you have

Write at least 150 words.

You do NOT need to write any addresses.

Begin your letter as follows:

Dear Sir or Madam,,


Model Answer:

Dear Sir or Madam,

I have recently seen an advertisement in a local newspaper regarding your intention to hire a few temporary workers for the summer camp you will organise next summer. So, I am writing this letter to let you know that I would be highly pleased to join your summer camp as a “Camp Counselor” to help you run sports and other outdoor activities for the young people and children at your camp.

I have finished my Bachelor degree in Physical education, and I also have experience working as a Junior Physical Instructor at one of the most prominent gymnastic centres in my city. Besides, I also have received training on “First Aid”. On top of that, I have read extensively on how to set up multi-activity day camp (where young children can meet others of the same age and make friends with them) and adventure camp for older children.

Based on these qualifications and skills, I think that I should be able to render a great service to your summer camp in the capacity of a “Camp Counselor” should you choose to give me an opportunity.

Yours faithfully,

Mitch Jhonson
