Find out more about the Camp Counsellor role...

Spend 9 weeks working with kids on an American summer camp!

What does the Camp Counsellor role involve?

Kids, kids and more kids! You'll be surrounded by campers all the time and this includes living with them for the summer! So firstly ask yourself - can you imagine yourself working with children 24/7 for 9 weeks? If yes, then read on...

As a Camp Counsellor, most of your time will involve taking care of a specific group of campers on a daily basis and sharing accommodation with them. You'll take your group to different activities throughout the day, sit with them at meal times, entertain them in the evenings and most importantly, make sure they are always safe. If you've got good experience in a particular skill, then you might be involved in helping other Counsellors teach that activity to campers. Every Counsellor role is different, so check out the Roles at Camp page to find out more.

What are the benefits of working as a Camp Counsellor?

Going to summer camp is the highlight of the year for campers. It's better than Christmas and birthdays combined! So getting to be a part of this excitement and helping kids make the most of their summer, means you get to make the most of your summer! You'll meet people from all over the world, make friends for life and experience a different culture. You'll gain confidence and endless new skills and you'll get to be involved in hundreds of different activities. It's non-stop and yes you will get tired! But it's the most rewarding, exciting, and fun way to spend your summer and as previous participants will tell you - it's the best job in the world!

Huw's Experience...

"After spending the last two summers working at a YMCA non-profit summer camp, I can honestly say that no two days are the same. As a General Counsellor I get to spend every day doing something new whilst looking after kids from all walks of life."
