Being a Summer Camp Counselor means you’re going to be paid to be a big kid every day. Your job is to make sure the campers are having the most fun possible and that means you’ll need to let loose. You’ll need to keep everyone smiling and make sure everyone’s getting stuck into the activities. This means that having fun isn’t a side effect of the job because it’s the whole job! What other summer job pays you to be a big kid and laugh all day? Best. Job. Ever!
Camp Counselor are hired based on skills, interests, and hobbies. That means you’ll be doing what you love all day! Summer Camp is all about the campers learning new skills and taking on new challenges. You’ll be sharing your hobbies and your skills, which isn’t a bad way to spend a summer, right? In addition to helping children learn and develop new skills, you’ll also be working on yours and trying your hand at lots of new things, whilst getting paid!
Camps tend to hire 50% US and 50% international staff, so you’ll be meeting, living, and working with people from all over the world. After spending the summer working together, you’ll quickly notice you’ve got a whole new family of friends. Camp Counselors tend to make friends for life.
