Durham searches for summer camp counselors, lifeguards

Posted January 28, 2015


Do you have a teen who needs a job this summer?

Durham Parks and Recreation will hold a job fair to showcase summer job opportunities for people interested in part-time seasonal work. It's 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., Feb. 7, at the Holton Career and Resource Center, 401 N. Driver St.

The department will be recruiting for job openings such as summer camp counselors, lifeguards and outdoor recreation specialists. Many of those jobs are taken by high schoolers and college students, I'm told. Candidates must be at least 16 years old to apply.

Job candidates will get to meet with parks staff, ask questions and learn more about the city's new job application system.

    All three of my kids worked summer jobs from Durham and survived. Imagine that! They are productive, employed college graduates now all in their early-mid 20's. Work never hurt anybody.

    Well, no need to worry. There are plenty of teens far less paranoid and fearful than you who will be happy to take these jobs.,

    Only way I'd do this is if they provide body armor
