The general term used for first time members of staff is ‘Camp Counsellor’ and this is exactly what you’ll be when you head to one of these camps this summer. As a camp counsellor it will be your responsibility to look after the kids and get involved in a variety of activities day to day… sounds fun, right? However, if you have expert skill levels in one of our in demand activities you could be an activity specialist, running sessions all day every day, just get in touch to find out more.
Working at camp is fun, but it is still work. For that reason, there are some requirements that will be expected:
It’s really easy to get your Summer Camp USA experience underway:
• First you need to register and sign up to the programme with a £39 deposit. Along with a few personal details this will give you instant access to all of BUNAC’s expert support.
• After your initial sign up you’ll gain access to your online account and the application process will officially begin which includes interviews, camp fairs, visa days and orientations!
• Applications are now open for 2019 programmes, and will close in March
• Early booking is better for in demand jobs and access to 2018 hiring events
