If you are pretty handy with a set of tools then maybe you would be interested in working on a summer camp in a maintenance role. Summer camps generally have support staff in addition to the regular counselors that are there to help maintain the camp and ensure everything is in working order.
This could mean working on all kinds of things from plumbing issues, to electrical problems or even some kind of building work. This is obviously a slightly different role than that of a camp counselor and doesn't really give you the opportunity to work directly with campers on a daily basis.
If you like working in a rural setting and thing being in a camp environment will be en joyable then this may be just the type of summer job that you are looking for. The great news is that you will generally spend most days working outside and enjoying the nice weather.
Rate of Pay
Maintenance positions are not usually highly paid but you may earn more depending on your experience and whether or not you are in a position were you manage other members of the maintenance staff.
Again no formal qualifications are required for this position but you must have a wide range of experience dealing with all kinds of maintenance issues. This could include plumbing, construction work, and electrical work. In addition most of the maintenance work can be quite demanding physically so you must be in good physical shape.
What They Say
