My best job was as an assistant camp counselor at an overnight Girl Scout camp in the woods where canoeing was the exciting thing you do. They taught us canoeing, tie dying and other fun stuff the first week.
Then we had new kids every week or two--it's great when your priorities are: #1 - safety and #2 - fun. So, I hated enforcing the no-running rule (and had to make sure no one was looking when I was running), but otherwise it was great. But we mostly never had to make people do things they didn't want to do.
It was challenging to find something for everyone to do if they were in charge of cooking or firebuilding, but I did it. Once when my group was in charge of cleaning latrines, they liked it so much that they said they always wanted that for their chore. I told them they could probably talk the other groups into letting them. It was fun to say things like, "Don't worry; we don't lower you down into the latrine--we just sponge off the outside of it, sweep and mop the floors, and clean the sink.
The other three summers I worked there were not as fun. It was more fun learning the best way to do things the first summer. Like "hill" (nap time), I decided the best way to was to tell everyone to pick a tent, any tent, and stay there the whole time. Do anything you want, but be quiet enough that if someone wanted to sleep, they could. Most of the good ideas were not mine--I got to learn them the easy way.
Also, I got to take a class in lifesaving, which was a lovely break from the kiddos.
The pay, well. We got a very small amount of money, especially when you consider that we got 3 hours off each day, were on call overnight, and worked all the other hours of the day. Plus we got room and board. Oh, I gained so much weight. Some of it was muscle though.
And of course the job's no good if you don't want to be away from home all summer!
I got to be a building monitor in college, which let me study, which was nice. I wouldn't call that a fun job, though.
And I've had a few jobs where I got to explain to people afraid of math how to do the math they needed to do for their jobs. I love doing that. And they get so appreciative. Even worshipful.
