Between the ages of

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
