Camp America are the biggest and best provider of the hugely-popular American summer camp experience. Every summer since 1969, 7,000+ young people aged 18-25 are sent to work on camps all throughout the USA – many of whom return to camp year after year.
To work at a summer camp is to live – as camp is fun, it’s rewarding and the experience is unrivalled in terms of personal development and work experience. Camp is a truly international environment and applicants will work with people from all corners of the globe and learn valuable employability skills – such as teamwork, organisation, leadership and self-motivation. These skills are unbelievably important to employers therefore having Camp America on your CV is gonna look AWESOME and will push your future job applications to the front of the queue. Your personal confidence levels will also sky rocket and, best of all, participants will make the best friends they’ll ever know - and have unbelievably good fun flying across the world to visit them afterwards!!
As part of the Counsellor programme, participants work directly with children; leading or assisting them in activities such as sports, the outdoors, water activities, music & craft. There is also a support staff programme, Campower, which places people in roles such as kitchen, maintenance and office admin. There is also the added bonus of earning pocket money and travelling after camp, which is all part of a inclusive package that includes return flights to your home country, visa support and comprehensive medical insurance.
It really is the summer opportunity of a lifetime!
