Teach what you love

If you’re passionate about the sport you play and enjoy coaching it, you’ll gain amazing experience working with American kids. Spend your days teaching campers how to play your sport through games, drills and training. You’ll work with a support team to bounce ideas off, to learn from and to help organise inter-camp tournaments and competitions. If you’re competitive, you’ll love this job!

Am I the right fit for this job?

To be hired as a specialist counselor, teaching or coaching experience is desired. Coaching qualifications are a big plus and will boost your application. If you don’t have a qualification or coaching experience, you can still get hired as an activity instructor. Versatility and a passion for teaching kids will improve your chances and make you look good to our camp directors.

What does a coach do at summer camp?

Stay pretty active, for one! You’ll be involved in planning and delivering up to 6 activity sessions a day. So if you’re working in the hockey department, you’ll set up the pitches in the morning, make sure the equipment is in place and run through your curriculum, all before the first lesson.

You’ll be teaching campers with different ages and abilities, so you need to change up your lessons accordingly. And, since friendly competitions are a big part of camp, you’ll usually organise a short match to end each lesson. In general, you need to make the sport fun and fresh for campers – so they’ll love it as much as you do.

Two months working in the sunny outdoors, plus a month of US travel to go wherever the wind takes you. #livingthedream

A job that never feels like work

Get the role you're born to do - where you're appreciated, where you have fun and where your loud voice/ embarrassing laugh is actually encouraged!

The chance to learn new skills

And to remember ones you've forgotten you had. Remember when you were convinced you'd be a world-class actress? You've got the green light to wow on that stage.

Lifelong friends from all over the world

Meet your fellow counselors from Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and more... handy if you ever need a place to crash while travelling!

Craic on tap

We mean banter. Of course. It's an experience fuelled by silliness, by acting like a big kid yourself and by having the time of your life. And actually getting paid for it!

No cash woes

We’ll cover your Insurance & Sevis fee. You have the freedom to book your own flights so that you can find the best deal for you. Plus we’ll give you a parting gift of up to $2,000 to fund that epic road trip.
