Fancy working in the Camp America London office!? Throughout the season we will have a number of seasonal positions available for you to apply for. Keep checking back on this page for up to date vacancies.

Join the team of Camp America experts and continue your own passion and enthusiasm for camp!
The Camp America Head Office is made up of a number of different departments; Applications, Visas, Police Check and Payments, Marketing, Customer Service and Medicals. Each department has a number of positions designed to help through their specific work load. All of the positions are based in our London office and will have different start/end dates based on their duties and peak times. Although you may be hired in one department we do require all of our seasonal staff to be flexible and happy to take on a number of different tasks when asked - if you've been to camp you'll be used to that! As well as the specific positions in the office there will also be the opportunity to help out at our flagship events such as; Info Nights, Recruitment Fairs and Orientations.
We're always looking for people who have had their own positive and enjoyable camp experience. Whichever department you're working in your ultimate goal is to help our applicants through the process as smoothly as possible and set them on the way to an incredible summer. We're looking for people with a strong work ethic and with skills in; communication, teamwork, self-motivation, customer service and preferably some admin experience. Throughout the season the work load can get very demanding and may require some evening and weekend work. We want people in our office to have the same positive energy and enthusiasm for the programme that they did on camp. It is a fun working environment to be in (people actually want to hear your camp stories!). So if you think this is you then get in touch.
