Swimming Jobs at Summer Camp USA

Swimming staff at our summer camp in the USA usually combine the responsibilities of coaching with being a cabin counsell; working on the waterfront is one of the best places to be at camp!

As a swimming instructor at one of our camps, you will be teaching skills and giving swimming lessons for four or more hours each day, normally in hour-long periods. In addition, if your camp organises a swim team, campers will try out to represent their camp in inter-camp tournaments and swim meets throughout the summer. You may be asked to coach the teams. On other camps, swimming may be a purely recreational, fun activity.

What experience or qualifications are camps looking for?

Camps are looking for:

  • Individuals who are familiar with different swimming strokes and have experience teaching a range of different strokes to children
  • Qualified instructors: if you have a qualification in swimming e.g. ASA qualified, be sure to mention this in your summer camp application
  • Experienced instructors, increase your chances with 1+ years experience teaching swimming to children.

Swim staff are expected to be:

  • Hard-working - teach swimming or lifeguarding
  • Safety conscious
  • Confident
  • Fun and enthusiastic
  • Ability to balance the fundamentals of teaching skills and safety
