INDUSTRY: Education & Teaching
Who will I be working for?
You will be spending your summer months working at a fantastic summer camp in the USA! Wild Packs specialise in finding summer camp jobs (based all over America) for hundreds of young people every year. We look to support individuals who are eager for a challenge, enthusiastic and want to make a positive impact on the lives of children. The year round team at Wild Packs HQ have worked on camp for years and many of us return each summer to embrace the mayhem of camp! We understand the power and magic of summer camp.
What will I be doing?
You will essentially be getting paid to be a big kid! You may be teaching kids how to swim, to hit a tennis ball, to paint a picture- the opportunities are endless. Your days will consist of hanging out with kids in the American sunshine, teaching them skills that they will keep with them for life. The more you put into camp the more you will get out of the whole experience.
Before any of the campers arrive, the camp will put all staff members through an extensive staff training orientation, which normally runs for at least a week.
What do I need?
All that we require is that camp staff arrive with an open mind, to leave their inhibitions at the gate and endeavour to be as proactive as possible through the application process. Camp will not require you to be an Olympic athlete or have appeared at the West End, but skills and experience with children will help.
If your heart is in the right place and you have a work ethic to match your enthusiasm, we will make it work. You have nothing to lose by completing our free application form and having a chat with us. There are absolutely no registration fees to worry about.
Camp will be over all too quickly (9 weeks on average). You will have a month or so after camp to go and travel around the USA- we encourage you to soak up the sights. Many of the other camp counsellors will wish to travel after camp, so don't worry about not having a concrete travelling plan before you leave for the USA- you can plan one with your new found camp friends!
If you are looking for an agency who will work with you on a personal level, cares about the welfare of you and the campers, offers a higher than average salary and is staffed by camp professionals then choose Wild Packs Summer Camps.
We place on a rolling basis, so the earlier you apply the more opportunities available, however applications will close at the end of March.
