Step behind the scenes.
With summer jobs in the office, security, maintenance, housekeeping and kitchen...
camp couldn’t function without these guys.
If you've always wanted to go to summer camp but see yourself more in admin than with children then you'll make a great addition to our support staff team.
They keep camp going full swing without being directly involved with the campers.
It’ll be up to you to keep everything running super smooth on a daily basis.
Camp, minus campers
If you want to go to camp, but don’t think you’d be suited to working with children, then this role could be a great fit for you.
There are lots of different roles that will allow you to make a big impact from behind the scenes. You'll live separate from the campers in a staff bunk, and you'll spend most of your day with the same team.
We send participants from 16 countries around the world, offering you the chance to make incredible friendships with people from far-flung places like Mexico, the Czech Republic and Venezuela. Support roles tend to be filled by a wide range of nationalities.
This is your chance to meet some new friends far from home.
Applicants must fulfill the following American visa requirements to be eligible for support staff roles.
- Be able to confirm that you are a full time student in on-going Higher Education
- Be aged 18+ by the time camp starts
- Have a clean criminal background
- Be available during the American summer (early June to September)
Not your average day job
Being support staff at summer camp allows you the best of both worlds - experience the world of summer camp, from food fights to lake swings and campfires - but also gain work experience in the industry of your choice abroad.
You’ll likely be sleeping in separate cabins than the counselors and the campers which means you’ll find more time off during the evenings to relax and, if you want to, to take the opportunity to join in the evening camp games.
Gain over 800 hours of working in an international setting.
Support roles at camp have a strong team mantra.
From working in the kitchen, to office or groundskeeping, you’ll be working closely together with similar working hours, which also means you’ll all have time off together.
Being part of the support staff team means that you’re given more free time to ensure you can get involved with the day-to-day fun of camp.
Why should I be support staff?
Working as support staff is a great way to experience summer camp without working directly with the kids. The days are long working in the kitchen but we had breaks throughout the day and evenings off.
There was plenty of time to get involved in activities such as performing in the staff talent show, or getting crafty for the water balloon fight. But you really can’t beat a swim in the lake after the lunchtime rush!
