You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.
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.
Write a letter to the organizer(s) of the summer camp.
In your letter:
- explain what sort of job you would like to do
- describe your academic qualifications
- 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,,
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.
