Mrs. Gail Bishop
YMCA Camps
7856 Old Hammond Hwy
Baton Rouge, LA 70809

Dear Mrs. Bishop,

At the suggestion of Steve Smith, I am writing you to inquire about the YMCA's Christmas Camp you will be conducting over the holidays.  I would like to apply for the head camp counselor job during the holidays.  I feel that my qualifications and love for children would make me a great asset to your program.

Presently, I am in my third year at Louisiana State University working to receive a degree in Elementary Education.  My overall GPA is 3.5 on a 4.0 scale.  Currently, I am taking classes such as Child Psychology, Children's Literature, Kinesiology and Public Speaking.

While attending school, I work as a teacher assistant at Wedgewood Elementary in the after school program helping the children with their homework and sports activities.  For the past four summers I worked for BREC as a camp counselor.  Working with BREC, I was able to bring the kid's horseback riding, lead a variety of recreation activities such as soccer, tennis, swimming and organize programs for the kids to enjoy. As you can see, I love to work with children and would love to teach them the things that I have learned.  I have also taken classes and been certified in CPR, Life Guarding, and First Aid.

I am looking forward to talking with you about this position.  You can contact me at 753-2488 or  Mjones@aol.com.  Thanks for your time.
