Summer Camp

Summer Camp in the United States is a way of life. Over a million children a year in America attend a camp and in South Africa we look for young councilors who are keen to travel to America for the summer to work with kids, teach a sport or an activity. Most people who go to camp say it is the greatest job you will ever have because you are paid to do a hobby or sport you love.  So if you like children and have a sport or skill you love doing and are happy to teach it to children, then camp is for you

Do you want to be a camp counsellor?

Here's how...

You must be aged 19-30

Must have experience with children, not necessarily as a form of profession but a profession related to fields of teaching, coach and youth/social worker is an advantage. In general have a set of skill to offer to children.


Must be South African, or have a valid visa to be in South Africa


Prepared to work from May to Sept and commit to the conditions and cultures set for camp and America as a country.



Enjoy and have experience working with Children
