American Youth Camps Federation,
20 April 2004
I read your advertisement in the Dutch newspaper Trouw of 18 April 2004, whereas you asked for youth leaders to work in one of your holiday camps during the summer. I can tell you that I am very much interested in such a job.
I am an 18-year-old Dutch girl. Presently, I am in the fifth form of a grammar school and I hope to pass my grammar school exam in May of next year. My summer holidays start on July 5 which means that I will be available from July 8th until August 28th at the latest since school starts again on September 2nd.
The main reason for my application is that I like to work with children. After grammar school I intend to start my studies at a teachers training college in order to become a teacher at a primary school, so this would be a valuable experience for me. I already have some experience in dealing with children in other ways. At home I have been a member of Scouting Holland for eight years now and for the last three years I have been a member of the staff with our local boy scouts. In this capacity I have frequently helped to organize all sorts of activities such as sporting events, endurance and survival tests etc.
Perhaps I should also mention that I like swimming and that I have two life-saving certificates as well as a first-aid certificate. Having attended a grammar school for nearly five years now, I think it is fair to say that my English is not too bad and that I don’t expect any problems in making myself understood or in understanding the children.
In case you decide to take me on as a youth leader, I would like to receive some information as to what kind of work is expected of me, what kind of accommodation I will be housed in and if I will be paid any money or given a travelling allowance.
I hope I will receive your answer soon.
