If you love the outdoors and have a sense of adventure, then leading hiking and adventure trips at Summer Camp is the place for you.
No, we’re not really looking for the next Bear Grylls, it’s not quite that extreme! But nonetheless, hiking and adventure is a brilliant thing to do at camp.
Camps in America are usually set in some of the country’s best woodland and trails, so if breathtaking scenery and clean air is your thing… keep reading.
Take overnight trips, cookouts and overnight camps. Have the time of your life, but beware of the real bears!
Every day at camp is a little different from the one before, but that’s part of the fun at camp!
If you’re leading Hiking and Adventure trips at Summer Camp, you’ll find yourself planning out exciting hikes, leading groups of campers, setting up campsites, and cooking all your food on an open campfire.
You’re responsible for keeping all the campers safe and making sure they’re having as much fun as possible.
Camp’s not all work, so you’ll have plenty of opportunities to get involved in all the fun and excitement that camp has to offer. From spending time around campfires tucking into traditional camp food to getting competitive at Colour War, there’s always something going on!
Every camp in America is looking to hire staff with qualifications if possible, so if you have a Mountain Leader Award or a similar qualification, then you could be in high demand!
If you’ve taken part in the Duke of Edinburgh award and want to put it to good use (especially Gold!), then this could just be the perfect role for you.
Experience working with Scouts or Guides groups would also look great on your application.
If you don’t have any qualifications, but you love hiking and adventures, then you could find yourself supporting more experienced hiking leaders and learning the ropes of leadership!
