I’m starting the great search for a summer job but really want to do something different/adventurous (I did a typical office job last summer and it was terrible!). Anybody have any good suggestions?Thanks

I’d aim for summer recreation with kids, kind of get sick of it a bit at first then it gets pretty fun when you realize your always smiling.

Depending on your area aswell tree planting in remote areas is an intense experience. Good money and good people good memories. Not a lot of people sign up for those jobs either so it’s a pretty good chance of getting the job when you apply. Just physically demanding, you’ll be in good shape by the end of it!

I don’t know there’s soo much really depends on your area

I’m thinking about getting a commercial truck license just to be able to travel for free, It’s not bad money either. If you can get a job at a wildlife refugee or state park that would be awesome too.

If you’re looking for an job somewhere adventurous (not exactly an ‘adventurous job’ seeing as you’re working for a hotel) go to alaskatourjobs.com. I worked for that company last year in Cooper Landing,
AK. and plan on going to Denali this year. Hope this helps!

you could try WOOFing, which is a program where you can work on an organic farm and in exchange they will give you room, board and show you around. I think the minimum required time you work is 2 weeks or soemthing, but I had a friend who did it in Italy for a month and loved it.

also, I worked at a camp last summer, and I loved it! working with kids takes just as much out of you as an office job (possibly more), but you’re actually smiling and enjoying yourself instead of trying not to fall asleep. Kids teach you a lot that adults are blind to.

Get a job as a raft guide! Find someplace that offers a relatively cheap guide school, and work from there. Easily the best summer job I’ve had.

I have a great summer job that i’ve been doing for the past three years and love it. It’s a 4 week language summer camp for kids. It’s pretty prestigious in the Midwest and will look great on a resume.

It’s also so much fun. If you speak German, Spanish, Arabic, Chinese or French it’s a great way to find a job in the USA and meet really cool people. I also find it really rewarding because some of the kids go from knowing NOTHING about the language to being able to hold a pretty hefty conversation.

There’s a reason I keep going back – you meet so many cool people interested in other cultures and languages and its really not that stressful of a job. It allowed me to see many different parts of the states that I wouldn’t have seen otherwise and it would be really cool to have some HEthens on board!

The summer academy/camp is called MMLA and are currently hiring “high-ering” :) I’ll be working at the Ohio site (not so glamourous I know) but I had a great time every year. http://mmla.middlebury.edu/ Just scroll to the bottom and check out “employment”. Feel free to use me as a reference / message me with any questions.

(can you tell i’m a huge nerd and MASSIVE advocate for this program) seriously immersion is the best way to learn a language and its non-stop super fun!
