English Week 2010 Camper Chores Questionnaire

Everyone at camp has a small daily chore (generally 20 to 30 minutes) to keep the camp running smoothly. Please fill out your hard-copy Chore Questionnaire completely and return it by June 1st to the registrar: Denis Thalson, 1105 Talbot Ave. Albany, CA 94706, or stay here at to fill out and submit this form online.

Circle (or, if online, check the radio box for) your choices for the jobs you are willing and able to do. Your job assignment will come from these choices. If you have a strong preference for a certain job, please note it. If you have any limitations that make a certain chore impossible for you, please note it. While we can’t promise the chore of your dreams, we will make every effort to accommodate your preferences and limitations.

If we don't hear from you we'll assume you can do any job...
