As the school year comes to an end, students possess more free time to do what they please. However, as many people have discovered, the majority of fun activities cost money, and to make money people often have to acquire jobs, which is what many students will do this summer.

In general, during the school year, students can rarely find time to complete their school work, attend sports practices, and have a job. In contrast, over the summer people find themselves with so much extra time on their hands that they don’t know how to spend it.

“I want to get a summer job doing something easy like working at the mall so that I will have a steady source of money to spend on fun summer activities like concerts and road trips. I also want to have a job simply because if I don’t I will be bored all summer so I might as well put my time to good use,” said junior Isabel Zwass.

Some individuals will seek out mindless work that they can get easily paid for while others will attempt to acquire jobs at summer camps, sports camps, or doing something active.

“I’m hoping to get a job at a summer camp like Camp Galileo or something like that. I remember attending it when I was younger and, looking back at it now, it seems like it would pay a decent amount of money and it would keep me active and able to interact with the kids,” said junior Raine Kerhin.

Summer camp jobs, while seemingly more tedious and exhausting, also have proven to be more rewarding.

“I worked at a summer camp last year and I really enjoyed it. It was so rewarding getting to bond with the kids at the camp and getting to watch them have fun and just carry out such a youthful spirit. It was really contagious and I would definitely do it again if I had the chance,” said senior Gabe Crespin.

No matter where students find employment this summer, working to make their own money will likely be a reward within itself.
