There are many benefits to your teenager becoming a Camp Staff, including:
Summer Camp Employment
Summer employment does not interfere with schooling and provides teens with a positive and productive use of their free time. It allows adolescents to garner all the benefits of employment without overtaxing their busy school schedules. Teens should begin looking for summer camp employment as early as December.
How Parents Can Help Working Teens
Before your teen applies for employment, be sure to discuss the pros and cons of the position with him or her, as well as the responsibilities associated with a job.
Come to a consensus about how you expect your teen to use his or her income. Will they be helping out with family finances? Would you like them to begin saving for university or college? Reaching a consensus will help to avoid later conflicts about money. Prepare a budget with your teen, and set limits on spending and discuss what percentage of the paycheck will be put into savings.
Camp jobs can be a wonderful experience, with the right supervision and parental guidance.
