A summer of fun

To be hired for Summer Camp USA you must be available for summer camp (we know, that’s a given).

Most camps request that you’re free for 10 weeks from June to August, while some camps are early birds and can start in mid-May. It’s also important that you love working with children because, let’s be honest, camp is for them first, you second.  

Oh, and don't forget, you might want to use up that 30 days of free travelling at the end... Just a hunch. 

Your Recent Experience

Camps generally look for people who have been working with children or teaching an activity in the past 12 months. Here are some great ways to boost your Summer Camp USA application: 

  • Volunteer with a local organisation / school / youth club.
  • Ask friends or family to see if they know anyone who can help you get some experience

The more recent and relevant experience you have, the more Camp Directors you’ll have checking out your application!

The Important Ticks to Consider:

  • Do you like working with children?
  • Are you friendly, energetic, enthusiastic, tolerant and caring?  
  • Are you able to commit to camp for 10 weeks, from mid May / mid June 'til the end of August?
  • Will you feel at home in an active, outdoors environment? We’re not talking Bear Grylls conditions, but at the very least it’d be awesome if you like forests and campfires and fresh air.

Please note that if you have ever been arrested or cautioned, this will affect your visa application. Please contact us before applying if you have ever been arrested or ever received a criminal caution or conviction.

Once you are on the programme, we'll work hard to match your skills, experience, background and preferences to a suitable camp vacancy.
