How can I list multiple summer camps with the same responsibilities in a shorter way.

by Amy
(Virginia, USA)

Over the last 3 years I've coached about 10 different summer camps (all multiple times) and I have done the same thing at each camp. How can I correctly list them on my resume without literally copy/pasting my duties for each camp over and over again?

ANSWER: I would just list them one right after the other, with location & dates of employment for each, then underneath that list, detail any achievements, skills, etc. gained in total. Something like:

ABC Camp, Richmond, VA, Camp Counselor, 6/08 to 7/08
CDE Camp, Virginia Beach, VA, Camp Counselor, 7/08 to 8/08
FGH Camp, Norfolk, VA, Camp Counselor, 6/09 to 7/09

Responsibilities/achievements in each camp counselor position were similar. Here are some highlights:

* Bullet 1
* Bullet 2

Do you see what I mean?
