There a lot of different reasons to work at Summer Camp in America. Getting to explore the US and having the time of your life are two!
Thousands of international staff head Stateside to work at camp every year, and everyone has their own motivations.
Whatever your reason, there’s a perfect summer job abroad waiting for you, but are you up for the adventure?
In today’s blog post, we talk through the top reasons why you should work at Summer Camp in America.
Working at Summer Camp is the most fun you’ll ever have at work. A big claim, but it’s true.
You’ll be paid to try your hand at new activities, be a role model, and make sure campers are having fun.
Working as a Camp Counselor is like being paid to play games and sing songs all day! And you’ll be working in the sun all day.
There’s nothing more rewarding than having an impact on the lives of the campers and seeing them improve their skills and confidence.
I know it’s a massive cliche, but you really will find yourself while you work at Summer Camp.
You’ll work with people from all over the world and be immersed in a different culture than you’re used to.
That means you’ll face lots of new challenges. You’ll need to dig deep and solve problems to get through everything that’s thrown at you.
When you look back on your experience, you’ll realize how many skills you’ve picked up and how much you’ve grown.
You’ll have lots of answers to the typical job interview questions you’ll face when you come back home!
Motivated a camper to overcome their fears? Faced and beat homesickness and culture shock? Travelled alone for the first time?
Your experiences will help you really shine in job interviews because you’ll stand out against everyone else who wants the job.
You’ll probably find the person interviewing you wants to find out as much about camp as they do about you!
