USA Summer Camp is a UK job recruiter for paid Summer Camp work placements that are available all across America. The Summer Camps are made for children who want to experience the outdoors, learn new sports and gain skills while at the same time enjoying a summer of excitement. Our camps want to employ international staff from the United Kingdom and all over the world to help run various camps located around the US. We have sent thousands of young people aged 18 and over to work a summer in the States.

The majority of the camps that we are associated with in America are based around stunning lakes and waterways. The lake is typically the focal point of camp life, and something that all campers look forward to is enjoying the water based activities as they get ready for their summer. Activities for campers can include banana boats, water slides, water-skiing, jet skis, sailing in small and large groups and being taught all aspects of water safety. Activities will be catered towards children aged 7-16 years old.

Sailing and Aquatic counselors are in extremely high demand. Every camp will need experienced staff as well as some less qualified staff to maintain and run their lake. Completing any level of qualification relating to sailing or water sports will give you an advantage when applying for a job at one of our camps, as does First Aid qualifications. Sailing or Powerboat Level 1 will be extremely desirable for working at the camps, however demonstrating an intermediate to high level of experience will also be acceptable to get placed.

Water sport specialists will take on the responsibility for organising and delivering all lake based activities for the summer at camp. They tend to be people who are more experience in sailing and jet ski or motorboat driving to a high level and/or are qualified to teach their activity to others. Aside from this, Water sport professionals must be comfortable teaching groups of children every day, create their own teaching plans and manage all members of staff in a designated group ensuring that the activities runs smoothly day to day.
