Dear Mr. Johnson —

Some of my favorite times as a young child were at camp. It was a time that I was able to explore, learn, be creative, and find who I was. It allowed me to uncover passions and experiences that lasted me my entire life. When I have children, I plan on bringing them to camp. Because of that experience, I want to provide that to everyone at your camp. That's why as a Camp Counselor I've been able to:

Be responsible for the youth. Including taking CPR training to ensure that all children under my care are taken care of.
Looked after more than 100 children in a summer program.
Helped coordinate and design youth programs during the camp.

I look forward to interviewing with you. If there is any information that you'd like to see that I didn't include in my application, please feel free to contact me and I will return that to you as soon as possible.
