Summer Camp Belongs On Your Resume!

Chris Thurber has written an excellent article on how to write about camp jobs on your resume (“Writing Camp Jobs On A Resume,” CB Sept/Oct 2011). This is a great read for our previous staff, as it shows how to celebrate the importance of camp to non-camp people who might be reading your resume.

More than that though, it’s a good read for anyone applying to work at camp, or anywhere else for that matter.

Great timing for me on this article! I have a meeting coming up to discuss the development of some property we have. Guess who is not on the committee? No youth or teens … might have to work on that part!
