Summer Job

Just got the call, I will be working at KOA.  I will move over there on Monday, but probably will not start working until May.

2 days a week at the front desk

2 days a week as the Children's Activity Director
Friday evenings, Saturday afternoon
 and Saturday Movie Night
(plus Sundays on holiday weekends) 

This should be interesting, I like working with kids.  I was a Girl Scout leader a long time ago, for about 8 years, and we had at least 30 girls in our group.

I get to decide what types of activities to add 
to the standard, planned events.

I get paid for all hours worked and my rent is very cheap,
just enough to cover the utilities.

The uniforms are yellow shirts, I don't think I have ever owned any yellow clothes.  Oh well, its only during work hours.

I will still be volunteering with the Sea Turtle Patrol. I am on the the patrol schedule on Thursday, April  11th and April 18th.  I hope I find a turtle nesting.
We will get an updated schedule every two weeks.


  1. I guess it's congrats on the job. Working with kids would probably rank about the bottom of the barrel for me. But I think you will be really good at it. You have such a creative mind.

  2. Hope you have a good air conditioner! Congrats having the added bonus of being near family.

  3. Congratulations on the summer job. Yellow isn't my color either but sounds like the price is right. Enjoy.

  4. You know when you see yellow shirts that it's a KOA. :) Congratulations on the summer job!

  5. Congratulations, that will require a change of gears, going from slow moving turtles to jet propelled kids. Enjoy.

  6. That sounds like a great job! Love doing fun activities with kids!

  7. Great plans and that KOA is a huge one and what a location! looking forward to reading all about it... especially the sea turtles... what fun

  8. That sounds like a great summer job. I personally like KOAs and the fun activities they have for kids. Good luck and enjoy your time.

  9. Great job for you. I hope you enjoy all the activities with the kids,
    And then the added bonus of the turtle watch.

  10. Sounds like a sweet gig. You'll be a KOA Ranger.

  11. Glad you've found something that you enjoy doing. Hope the kids are a fun part of it. The sea turtle work sounds wonderful!!

  12. I'm glad you found a good place! Working at the front desk part of the time and with the kids the rest will give you a varied work experience. I'd like that, I think. I'd also like the pay! Good deal! I'm looking forward to hearing how it goes. :)

  13. You're getting busy!! Not one, but two different jobs to do. We hope that you enjoy your time out on the island.

  14. Glad you found a summer job. Believe it or not I didn't even know that KOA was still

  15. Yay, sounds like a good gig to me! I have a few yellow shirts, I like yellow. Hope you get to see some little sea turtles head out to the sea when they hatch! That would be cool.
