    Interview Details

    Behavioural interview - City of calgary posts the questions online check out their website.
    Also, be prepared to present a game (like soccer or card game) to show you can work with kids and know how to play games. I suggest just going online and picking camp games.

    Sometimes they do a panel interview, the key is knowing how to work with people.
