    Hey everyone,
    So I would like to say, 'You were looking for an organiser (animateur) in/at/for a summer camp this summer ...', but I do not know whether I should use 'au' or 'dans'
    My sentence is, 'Vous cherchiez un animateur dans un/au camp de vacances cet ...'
    Thanks in advance to anybody who helps :)

    Hi,

    is it in, at or for? Not at all the same...

    Vous cherchiez un animateur dans un camp de vacances = you were in a summer camp, looking for an organiser.
    Vous cherchiez un animateur au camp de vacances = you were in the summer camp, looking for an organiser
    Vous cherchiez un animateur pour un camp de vacances = you were looking for an organiser for a summer camp.
    Vous cherchiez un animateur pour le camp de vacances = you were looking for an organiser for the summer camp.

    Thanks for your help :)
    Given your answers, I think it should be for, as I am applying for the job of organiser.
