Fun Time Summer Camp is a fantastic children’s camp located in the New York’s lake district. It provides a variety of activities for city children aged 6 to 15 who don’t have the opportunity to be in the countryside. Children will be able to swim, go canoeing, go rafting, play basketball, volleyball, take part in theatre and even learn to play a musical instrument and much more. 

We are looking for young people over 18 to act as team leaders and look after the group of children they are assigned. The groups may range from 5 to 10 children. Previous experience of being a team leader is desired but not mandatory. What is necessary is that candidates must be physically fit, enjoy working with children and are willing to work 12 hours a day 6 days a week. All accommodation and board is provided by the camp and you will receive $40 per day. Payment will be received two months after you have finished working for us.  The camp operates from June 1 to July 31 but you will need to be at the camp May 15 to undergo training regardless of whether you have previous experience or not.. 

Contact camp director Bill Myers at for further details.


Do you want to work for yourself and be independent and make lots of money although you have no previous work experience? That may sound impossible but here at Dillerstein Brush, all things are possible. Dillerstein Brush, located in downtown Toronto,  is a direct distributor of a variety of household products that go directly from us to the customer without the customer having to go to a shop or shop online.

We are currently looking for agents 16 and over to sell the items in our catalogue. No previous experience is required and there will be free training for suitable candidates. The training sessions will be conducted by the owner and founder of Dillerstein Brush, Joseph Dillerstein, who has over 50 years of experience in the selling business. Who could ask for more! Payment is on a commission basis so you could be making as much $200 a day, as many agents who work for us do. So, don’t delay and contact us at  for an interview.

Successful candidates will work begin working in June and will have the option to continue working for us after July provided their performance is satisfactory.

Zenith is an NGO dedicated to relieving the plight of refugees who are forced to leave their homeland and seek a safe haven in another country in order to start a new life. Many of the refugee camps that refugees are in are in terrible condition and the facilities that they provide are completely inadequate to meet even their most basic needs.  We can be found in refugee camps all over Europe and we aim to provide refugees what governments can’t or refuse to provide.

What we are looking for are people who are dedicated to helping those in need, people who want to make the world a better place free of hate, prejudice and injustice. If you are such a person, are over 18 and are willing work hard without pay, you are just what we are looking for. The work will include a variety of duties including communicating with various government  authorities, cleaning refugee accommodation and advising refugees. You will receive free accommodation and board at the refugee camp you are assigned but transportation to and from the camp is not provided. The position is from June 1 to August 31.
