WHAT IS A SUMMER CAMP?
Imagine that on the same day you ride horses, you sail on a lake surrounded by woods, play basketball, volleyball or tennis, and tell stories to children around a campfire.
Every year, hundreds of thousands of children aged 5-17 participate in summer camps throughout the United States. Specific activities can vary from camp to camp, but the atmosphere of fun and friendship remains the same. Whether children attend one or eight weeks together with program participants they have an equal opportunity to try new activities every day, learn important skills individually or as a group, and achieve long-term or even lifelong friendships.
Within the program there are two positions:
ACTIVITY SPECIALIST – a person who specializes in one of the activities in the camp and someone who is directly involved in working with children, who teaches them on a daily basis and shares their knowledge and skills with them.
CABIN COUNSELOR– a person who lives with children, organizes their activities and time in the camp. Whether they help children when writing an email to parents, resolve disagreements, checks if they are well dressed or made their dormitories, Cabin Counselors present their supervisor and person who will be the their quide during their entire stay in the camp.
During the program, Activity Specialist and Cabin Counselor take care of a group of children who are about the same age.
The program lasts 9-10 working weeks and the participant is obliged to comply with the working contract.
At the end of the season, there is still some time for adventure. Plan your visit to the friends you will meet in the US. Within 30 days of completing the program, you will have the opportunity to travel around the United States, visit its attractions, cities, meet different people, try traditional American cuisine and more. Climb to the top of the Statue of Liberty, cross the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, explore the Yellowstone National Park, the possibilities are enormous.
