Day Camps in America

Day Summer Camps

Day Summer Camps are very similar to private American summer camps but with the twist that they are only open in the day - the clue's in the name.

The children will arrive in the morning, spend an epic day with you before being picked up and heading home that evening. It will be your role as a Camp Counselor to ensure each and every day is filled with enjoyment, adventure, and positive learning experiences.

Day Camps offer local children the opportunity to spend time in the outdoors enjoying a wide variety of traditional and exciting activities, including; active sports, watersports, performance arts, crafts and animal care.

Don't be too sad when you say goodbye at the end of the day, they'll be back tomorrow.

What to Expect

The best 9 to 5 job in the world. The campers will be heading home at the end of the day and arriving on the school bus in the morning, giving you more time off than at any other type of camp.

You’ll Love

The opportunity to do what you want to do in your time off. Chill out, head into town or explore the outdoors. You’ll have plenty of ‘me time’ at day camp.

Facilities and Accommodation

The vast majority of day camps will provide accommodations for staff to stay over even when the children have gone home for the evening. However, some day camps utilise local university or college accommodation or even family homes of campers, offering you the ultimate experience of immersing yourself into American culture.

The Campers

Day camps tend to work in a similar fashion as a typical childcare/daycare centre but in a traditional summer camp environment. This means that the children are often a little younger and live relatively close-by to the camp.

Applying for a Day Camp

As part of your application, you’ll be able to specify what kind of camp you’re interested in and we will then look to match you with what matters to you. Day camps are more like a schedule, so they can be mixed with other camp types. For example, you could work at a special needs day camp or a Christian day camp. We’ll automatically send your application to all of the day camps we work with as part of our placement process.
