Camp Leaders

Camp Leaders is your chance to have the summer you’ve always dreamed about - a nine week placement at an all American summer camp. Full of fun and excitement, with this summer job opportunity you get to enjoy America in a really original way.

In this cultural exchange program, there are 3 job types to choose from; the counselor (looking after children) a specialist (teaching a sport or activity) or support staff (a bit more behind the scenes away from the children, like office roles at camp).

For £599 you’ll have your placement, return flights (to and from camp - not just NYC), medical insurance, all your food and meals at camp, 24 hour support. Plus, you’ll also earn ‘pocket’ money for your role and travels.($800 - $1,500).
With the J1 Visa you’ll also have 30 days to travel the USA after your placement. Did someone say road trip?

Adventure China

Adventure China is a completely unique and new experience. Go a step further this summer and be one of the first to spend an exciting 8 weeks working at a summer camp in China.

For only £399 you'll get return flights, a visa, medical insurance, plus accommodation and food at camp. Not only that, but you'll still receive pocket money, which you can put towards the additional 60 days worth of travel.

Based on the traditional summer camps of America, our Chinese summer camps are similar in their daily running and facilities but the locations are what sets this program apart. Our Chinese camps can be found just outside the coastal town of Qingdao and in amongst the wilderness of Inner Mongolia.

Your role will vary from being with the campers to running and leading their activities, which gives you the best of both worlds in this ancient one.

Summer Camp in Canada

Discover Canada, a beautiful country surrounded by mountains, moose and maple syrup. This is your opportunity to experience summer camp in a place that truly embraces the outdoors. Unlike America the application process is speedier and easier because it doesn't require you to go through the visa process.

For just £399, our package will land you a summer job abroad for 8 - 10 weeks as a camp counselor or activity leader at an accredited summer camp with one of our Canadian summer camp jobs.

We work with over 100 summer camps in Canada and they are looking for fun people to teach skills and look after campers. So if you fancy summer camp but in a completely invigorating environment, summer camp Canada is currently the UK’s hottest Canadian work abroad package. Good ey.
