Job description

Work at a summer camp in China

Ready to escape the ordinary?

Adventure China is offering you the chance to work for eight weeks at a summer camp in China.

China is one of the world’s most unique destinations. A heady fusion of history and the here and now. In China, everywhere you look, change goes hand in hand with a deeply rich and powerful culture.

Our Chinese summer camps can be found just outside the coastal town of Qingdao and in amongst the rugged expanse of Inner Mongolia. Based on the traditional summer camps of America, the themes continue through in the daily running and facilities.

We’re looking for general counselors to work with the children and run activities at camp.

What is a Camp Counselor?

The General counselor is your all rounder at summer camp.

As a Summer Camp Counselor, your role is to join in, have fun and to guide your campers throughout their schedule. Far from the lay down on the couch and tell me about your problems type counselor (which might spring to mind) - at camp, the term counselor simply means you’re the ones in with the kids.

No need for qualifications.

A great General Counselor will be a strong all-rounder, happy to join in and give everything a go.They live life with the children at summer camp, usually sharing a cabin. They’ll get up, get the kids up and moving. Make sure they’ve brushed their teeth and hair, then accompany them to all the activities throughout the day.

General counselors are known to be outgoing and active people. They are up for all activities and challenges, it’s up to you to keep the campers motivated and supervised.

As a camp counselor;

  • You’ll get to have a go at everything
  • You’ll know the campers the best
  • You’ll be part of an international team

Camp Counselor jobs are your chance to have a different kind of summer, spending nine weeks working with children. It's a great experience for anyone who wants to go into teaching or coaching. This role pushes you to be a better person and you’ll walk away as a problem solver, a communicator and a team player.

Working at a summer camp is the experience of a lifetime. Being a general counselor means you get to enjoy everything camp has to offer, you don't need to be qualified and you also get up to 60 days to travel China after. Trust us when we say there’s a lot to see.

For only £399 you'll get return flights, a visa, medical insurance, plus accommodation and food at camp.
Adventure China takes care of you, so you can focus on enjoying the experience.

We take out the scariness that can partner with venturing into the unknown. You’ll be equipped with resources, self-development tools and in person training before you go alongside unwavering support whilst away.

This is the new way see an ancient world.
