Do you have the desire to earn money, but are too young to have a real job? Well, if you happen to be good at sports or dance and have great leadership skills, then there is a perfect job for you! Running a dance or sport camp! It is a simple, convenient way to earn money!
All it takes is a few hours of your time, an area to do the camp, and people willing to participate, If you aren’t sure that you will find enough people, advertise! Make attention-grabbing flyers to put up around your community. Put the necessary information, like the who, what, where, when, and why. Also remember to put the cost! That is very important or else you won’t be making any money!
When the day of the camp arrives, be prepared for the worst. Be sure to have a first aid kit on hand. Have plenty of water and snacks for the participants. Make sure you have everything set up prior to the beginning of the camp. Have the whole camp completely planned out.
During the camp, remember to be patient. They are children, so expect them to act like children. Don’t get mad or frustrated with them if they aren’t completely following your directions. Try to stay calm, be supportive, and encouraging. Use kid-friendly materials to avoid an injury or accident.
All in all, a dance or sport camp is the perfect way for preteens to earn money, and to actually have a job! Whether you plan the camp all by yourself or do it with some friends, you are bound to have a blast earning money and having fun!
