The applicant named has applied for a position as a counselor in our co-educational children’s camp. Your critical appraisal and confidential evaluation of this person will be of great help in selecting our staff.

It is most important for leaders of boys and girls to be of high ideals, possess integrity, get along well with others in the intimate life of camp and most importantly, enjoy being with children.

A counselor’s summer involves living and working with children between the ages of 10 to 18 for eleven weeks. The counselor is with the children during the day, then sleeps in the same room with a group of campers at night. Because living with children is very wearing, and because counselors live in close proximity to the campers, the experience is demanding.

We would appreciate you providing confidential information about the applicant. We hire on the basis of information supplied by references and statements made by the applicant. We hope you will be frank, candid and objective so that we may avoid mistakes in hiring.

Thank you for your response and kind assistance.
