The majority of camps we work with are privately owned and run as a business. This means that the parents pay money for their children to stay on camp from 1-8 weeks.
Day Camps are set up for children from the local area, so they don't stay overnight. Most day camps run between 9am - 5pm, Monday-Friday.
These camps are either just for girls or all boys! So the camps will look to hire staff of the same sex as the campers.
The focus of Girl Scout Camps is outdoor living and teaching girls the basics of camping out under the stars.
Special Needs Camps cater to children and adult campers who have a variety of needs including learning and emotional difficulties and physical/mental disabilities.
These camps are run by charities to offer summer sessions for children from disadvantaged backgrounds, giving them the summer camp experience that every child deserves.
Christian Camps are for children from Christian families. Some of these camps will only hire Christian staff, whilst the more liberal Christian camps won't mind if you're not religious.
Lots of camps in the USA are run by Jewish families, so there is a huge demand for Jewish applicants. However even if you're not Jewish, you can still apply to work on these camps!
Past Participant & Brand Manager/Interviewer
“I have been lucky enough to work alongside The Salvation Army for 3 years, working on an Underprivileged summer camp as a General Counsellor. As a General Counsellor I had the responsibility of waking the children up, taking them to their meals and their activities. This meant I got to take part in all of the activities too, which was great fun. There is no other job like a camp Counsellor, it is extremely rewarding and great fun!”
