LIVING AND WORKING IN THE CAMP

 

If you choose Summer Camp program, during the nine or ten weeks you dedicate yourself to a lot of fun and hard work, trying to provide children with an interesting and valuable experience.

The camp is your new home where you do all your activities. During the week, you get a one day off, which you can use to go to the local community near the campsite and rest from everyday activities.

Life and work in the camp includes:

  • Life with children
  • Staying in larger rooms / bedrooms (candidates do not have their own room, they share it with other employees or with children)
  • Responsibility for children within the camp
  • Most candidates spend time on their feet and outdoors
  • 6 working days a week – candidates must be available 24 hours during the working day
  • Limited access to the Internet and the phone
  • During working hours, access to the phone is strictly prohibited (candidates are recommended to take a wristwatch)
  • Camp nutrition is based on the principle of canteens
  • Nutrition options for people who are allergic to gluten, vegetarians, etc. is limited
  • Restricted rest periods (some camps within the days have a certain time set for rest)
  • The possibility of “cultural shock” upon arrival in the United States
  • Training before entering the camp
  • Schedule is very important in campsites – candidates must respect the schedule and not be late
  • The candidates are expected to be proactive and not afraid to ask or seek help if they need them

Every day in the camp is a little different, but also full of new experiences and challenges, and it looks approximately like this:
