My daughter is only 15... Im surprised there are places that hire that young. I was under the impression you had to be 16 to hold a job.
Anyway she has been looking in to volunteering for a day camp... in hopes of getting a paying position summer 2011 when she will be 16. However, a sleep over camp which she really wants to do would conflict with club soccer. Leaving her with out a high school sport and WAY too much time on her hands during the school year. So I am encouraging her to look into day camps.
Im not opposed to them working but only during summer and only part time... school comes first. She is at an accelerated school so in one term she learns as much as the other high schools teach in one full year. The homework load really is conducive to employment.
