Advanced Skills Counsellor

Advanced Skills Counsellors are the all-action heroes of summer camp. They take on the overall responsibility of organising and instructing in a particular activity. They're the experts in their chosen field and are the staff that counsellors will assist (and most likely learn a thing or two from over the course of the summer!)

As an advanced skills counsellor, it's likely that your days will be dedicated to coaching one specific area and although camps hire instructors in a wide variety of areas, we're on the look out for highly skilled applicants with formal experience and expertise in the following skills areas:

  • Archery
  • Climbing Wall/Rock Climbing
  • Gymnastics (apparatus/trapese)
  • High/Low Ropes
  • Lifeguarding/Swim Teaching
  • Motorboat Driving
  • Piano
  • Qualified Teacher
  • Riding
  • Riflery
  • Sailing/Windsurfing
  • Tennis
  • Waterskiing/Wakeboarding
  • Yoga

As well as coaching in a specific area during the day, Advanced Skills Counsellors also play a part in overall camp life - so you will have childcare duties and get the opportunity to get involved in all other areas of camp life.

When you make your application, our US placement team will dictate whether or not your application meets the criteria of an Advanced Skills Counsellor and if you are offered an advanced role on camp you are likely to qualify for a higher rate of pocket money.

So...if you take your sport or craft seriously and have some formal coaching experience - the Advanced Skills Counsellor role could be right up your street!
