I know this sounds stupid but I don't like kids at all and to me its so difficult to be nice to them because I can't fake things. lol im going on a volunteer trip in a week and I don't know what im going to be doing there.. i would prefer to be with animals or cooking or in the countryside but im too scared they tell me to stay with kids playing with them or teaching them stuff because I don't even know how to talk to them, I usually treat them as if they were adults...

You know what? You've got the point. Treat them as the adults. Like this they can feel as equal partner. Talk to them as to adults. Like this they learn about responsibility. Actually I truly believe you giving them a favor. I'm treating the kids the same way and no complaints from their side.
But if they're too young, let's say below 5 or 6 years, make something funny. Like voices, faces, etc.
