USA Summer Camp - 2013 Applications Now Closed!
Enjoy the most amazing, fulfilling and challenging time you can imagine as a Camp Counsellor.
Afterwards, there is time to travel and visit all the places in America that youve always wanted to see.
Thousands of North American children aged between 6 and 16 go to camp each year to have fun, learn new activities and enjoy the generally hot and sunny long vacations. There are about 12 000 Summer Camps in the USA, catering for all budgets of children, with campers attending for between 1 and 8 weeks.
The camps are situated throughout the USA, usually in picturesque lakeside settings. Counselors look after the children and teach them activities. The role of a Counsellor is that of a brother/sister and/teacher/friend/cheerleader, all rolled into one. Itís no surprise therefore, that an essential requirement for camp counselling is a genuine liking for children and the ability to get on with them.
Counsellors spend 24 hours a day with the children, living and sleeping in the same cabin, working and playing with them. Its hard work, but for the right people, it can be very rewarding and great fun.
Camp Counselors USA is a work (first) and travel (later) experience. It can be a beneficial and enjoyable experience for anyone with sports or arts ability and the enthusiasm and desire to instruct children. Many trainee teachers find that camp is as relevant and useful as teaching practice. Non-teachers and non-students also have much to contribute to, and gain from the program. There are also many openings for those with experience working with mentally or physically disabled, or socially disadvantaged children.
