Types of Summer Roles

We have been matching people up with camps for over 19 years now. We ask you what you like, we ask them what they like, then we find you the perfect match. We’re like the Cupid of the summer camp world. Except we wear trousers.

Camp Counselor

If you love coaching children and feel confident with teaching or coaching then the camp counselor role is for you. Typically, you will be living in a cabin with one or a couple of co-counselors and 6-9 children, although it could be more or less depending on where you are placed. You will be responsible for getting the kids up and ready, getting the cabin in order and delivering your well-groomed and nicely dressed children at their activities. From arts and crafts to archery, teach English in China in a completely new way.

Full Preparation

Good news! Unlike America, getting a Visa for China is far easier.

And the even better news is we're here to help assist you through the application process and find you a placement that suits your ideals for the summer as well as assist you with all the necessary documentation. You could be volunteering from anywhere between June and August, with time to travel after and we can give you lots of tried and tested tips for that too.

We will even go as far as to sort your flight out for you and ensure you have full instructions on how to get from your UK departure airport to the front doorstep of camp. Our office is packed full of passionate and knowledgeable summer camp alumni who have lived through every step of this journey before. We can answer all of your questions and we’ve probably asked most of them ourselves in the past too. We can’t pack your suitcase for you, but you will know exactly what to put in it by the time the summer comes around.
