Sports Summer Camps

Summer Sports Camps

Sport is a huge part of every summer camp in America. Sports camps take this to a whole new level with a fun, dynamic programme purely focused on sport - for athletic and sports mad campers.

We’re always on the lookout for anyone with a sporty background or desire to get involved with one of our fitness camps or sports camps. So whether you’re interests lie in archery, tennis, football, lacrosse, outdoor adventure or even American football coaching, life as a summer camp counselor is diverse and we’ll be able to find the perfect job for you.

If you’re a qualified instructor or have a lot of skill and experience then there are a large number of summer camps ready to snap you up.

What to Expect

Sports. And a lot of it. Some summer camps will be sport-specific, for example a soccer camp in America, but most will run a wide variety of sports programmes.

Top Tip

Competition is high for these camps and roles, so ensure that you have strong experience coaching sports to children. Ideally you will be qualified in whatever sport you’re looking to teach.

What Not to Expect

Some elements of other camps experiences won't feature at sports camps. You’ll still do other traditional summer camp activities, such as campfires and pool parties, but the predominant focus of the sessions will be based around sports.

You’ll Love

Getting paid to do what you love whilst making a positive impact at the same time. It's win win win.

Facilities and Accommodation

Sports camps are typically very well equipped with modern and advanced facilities. While more traditional and rounded camps will build in sports as part of the camp programs, sports camps are specifically for sports, which means that they really go all out when it comes to the quality of the program and facilities.


The Campers

Campers will range in ages and predominantly come from more affluent backgrounds. Again, because the sports camps are very sports focused, the ability of the campers will be fairly high compared to other camps. For some camps, both the parents and the campers will take the quality of the sports programmes very seriously and many campers will be looking for a professional or semi-professional career in sports in the future, so the level of coaching you can offer will need to be fairly high.


Applying for a Sports Camp

As part of your application, you’ll be able to specify what type of camp you’re interested in working in and we will then look to match you with what matters to you.

Work as a soccer coach at a soccer academy or even in gymnastics coaching at a specialised gymnastics camp, sports camps will fit under many categories. When filling in your application, you won't need to select that you'd like to go to a sports camp, although you can tell us in your interview - when filling in your application, just focus on your skills section. We’ll do the rest.
