What’s the best way to spend a summer: become a Camp Counselor or get a summer job? A summer job is a great way to earn some extra money and America’s a great place to work and explore. It’s a tough choice, but we think there are lots of good reasons to combine the two!
Thousands of American children take a break from everyday life and head out to the great outdoors to spend their summer at camp. Camp’s all about giving those children the chance to try out new activities, make new friends, and build new skills. To help, American Summer Camps hire staff from all over the world to help them run the activities and add a splash of international culture. This is where we need you!
There’s a whole list of reasons why heading to camp is the ultimate summer job abroad. Working as a Camp Counselor makes you more employable and helps you build lots of transferable skills. You’ll get lots of chances to build leadership, teamworking, and communication skills – all vital in the world of work. With many of our applicants heading out to teach activities like media, sports, performing arts and so much more, many come back with heaps of new experiences and are ready to begin their career in this activity or study further! Whether you want a career working with children or not, Summer Camp will give you more experience than you can imagine.
Working at Summer Camp is a job, but it’s the most enjoyable job you’ll ever have. Most camp counselors actually forget being a counselor is a job! As part of your daily tasks, you’ll be teaching campers new skills, taking them around to activities and making sure they’re having fun! One day you could be spending the day in the lake, the other on the football pitch. You’ll have more fun working at Summer Camp in America than you will a summer job at home though. A big promise, but it’s a promise!
If you want the best summer of your life and you want to explore America, then become a Camp Counselor. A Camp Counselor job is about being able to look back at the craziest yet most enjoyable experiences you’ve ever had. Working at Summer Camp in America is the ultimate summer job. Why settle for a boring job at home?
