Summer Camp Support Staff

The Hidden Heroes and The Backbone of Camp!

What do Summer Camp Support Staff do?

Every camp needs a team of hard-working Summer Camp Support Staff working behind the scenes! They’ll help make sure the camp runs smoothly and everyone has the best summer experience possible.

Whether you’d like a job working in the camp office, within maintenance, making sure camp looks incredible or helping out with the housekeeping/laundry, there’s an important job for you at camp.

As Support Staff, you’ll have a more behind the scenes role which is ideal if you don’t think you would suit a Camp Counselor role.

 

A Typical Day at Summer Camp

A typical day at camp will depend on the type of support job you’re employed in. Whatever your job, you’ll be given full training when you arrive at camp so you’ll get to know the ropes quickly.

Unlike Counselors, you won’t be working with the campers directly, but you’ll still be working around them. Support Staff typically get more downtime during the day than Counselors and usually live in separate accommodation.

Being the backbone of camp means that Support Staff often make a higher salary which means more money for travelling!

 

Eligibility

There are some requirements you’ll need to meet to be eligible to work in a Support Staff role. You’ll need to be a full-time student, on a Higher Education Course. You’ll also need to be available to work from the 1st of June to the 1st of September.

Have fun in the sun while ensuring the smooth running of camp. We’ve helped more than 40,000 people work in America, so rest assured you’re in safe hands.

Been placed at a camp in NY state. Summer Camp team were very helpful, phoned regularly to check up on me. Looking... forward to this new experience. Would have liked more information on additional costs (e.g. visa) before signing up, however I'm sure it'll all be worth it. The interview process (with the camps) was surprisingly quite fun. I also wish the team would have let me know that most camps require people with more experience with children but maybe that should have been more common sense on my part. Besides those two little things, the team were supportive and enthusiastic :-)read more

USA summer camp made the difficult and complicated process of applying for the J1 visa super straightforward. Their... customer service is the best I've experienced in any business, they are just so enthusiastic, energetic and helpful!As well as this I had one of my best summers ever over in the US thanks to them. I will be returning and would strongly recommend USA summer camp!read more

Had the best summer of my life - after two days back home I was ready to go back to camp!! Staff are all very amazing... and friendly. The only reason its 4 stars is due to the wage not being as high as other agencies. Also i would recommend booking your own flights!! (You’ll save approx. £500 with both paying less and more salary)read more

I had an amazing experience with USA Summer Camp! I went to my camp for the first time in the summer of 2016, and... returned for the summers of 2017 and 2019. Every step of the process was clear and easy due to the service of the team, and responses were always speedy and friendly when any queries came up. They really look after their applicants and know how to put them at ease - all of the somewhat daunting parts become a joy with such constant support! It was great knowing that if anything came up during my time at camp that they were only a phone call away. Could not recommend them more for anyone who is interested in being a camp counsellor for a summer (or a few). Thank you so much for all of your help, USASC!read more

I've been looking forward to working with USA Summer Camp for a while now, based on the service they provided to me... when i initially applied to go on to a summer camp programme in summer 2018. They ensured i was well equipped and excited for the opportunity. Being part of the national support team allows me to brag about not just the best, but most important summer of my life. Now i get to enable others to help empower and engage with campers from USA. As a bonus, the staff are super friendly too.read more

Thanks again.read more
