What do I need?

A summer of fun

To be hired for Summer Camp USA you must be available for the duration of summer camp (obvious, we know!).

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 important that you love working with children too 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 worked with children or taught 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 if they know anyone who can help you get relevant experience

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

The Important Ticks to Consider:

  • Do you love working with children?
  • Are you friendly, energetic, enthusiastic, patient 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!

Get the ball rolling with a summer camp interview!

With interviews happening all over the UK, the first step is to book your space with one of our experienced Camp Counsellor Coaches! All of them have been to camp with BUNAC themselves and will be there for you throughout your entire application process - just a phone call or an email away. Ask a question to those who live, breathe, eat, sleep and dream all things Summer Camp USA!
