I'm Going Back to Camp!

I have some exciting new to share, hope you get excited to! I have a new job opportunity, and it does not involve an institute. I've been invited to attend a session with a Language Camp called CII International Exchange program. Its a company that puts on what we might call a retreat with a theme for young porte├▒os. They last for three days, and the whole thing is conducted in English. I will be attending my first camp from the 5th till the 7th. Oh, and the whole thing happens in the Campo, a few hours outside the city.
The theme is Spy Camp! and I'm excited. I'm thinking James Bond, Pussy Galore..oh wait, I got carried away. This is a camp for 12 year olds after all. So today I attended a meeting about the camp. I met some of the other counselors and found out I'll be working with many Irish people (always a plus) and some other people from the UK and the US. We made up some mission activities for the kids, and discussed what we could wear to Casino night. So far good times, even though I was not ready to use so much creative brain power after six hours of sleep.
So the idea of this camp is kind of my try out, and I think that if I prove to them that I'm not too crazy, but just crazy enough to spend three days in a row being a camp counselor once a week than I think I might have a new full time job - with a salary. Not to count my chickens before they hatch or anything, but this could be how Josh and I are able to stay here independently of our dwindling US dollars. Also, I always wanted to be a camp counselor, but could never commit to the whole summer. Now's my chance!!! I'll keep you posted...hehe.
