What do summer camp adventure jobs include?

Adventure programmes are popular, giving campers in America the chance to step out of their comfort zones and try something new – and you’ll be there to guide them as an activity leader.
You could be teaching campers how to build a shelter or showing them some of the amazing animals native to the area. Most summer camps in America will have a wide range of outdoor adventure activities being offered to their campers. Nearly all our camps will train you extensively before the kids arrive in anything from high ropes to mountain biking.
Not only will you get paid for your time and learn new skills, but it’ll look amazing on your CV. Stand out from the crowd and have the best summer at a camp in America!
If you’re lucky enough to be hired as a high ropes instructor then you’ll be given specialist training, including first aid, which can be fantastic for your CV.

    Adventure Counselors are camp counsellors who specialise in leading outdoor adventure activities such as hiking, rock climbing, kayaking, and other outdoor pursuits.
    While previous experience leading outdoor activities is preferred, it is not always required. A love of the outdoors, a passion for adventure, and a desire to work with children are the most important qualities.
    Adventure Counselors receive extensive training in outdoor safety, risk management, and activity planning. They also receive training in working with children, conflict resolution, and team building.
    Yes, Adventure Counselors live on-site at the camp in staff cabins or tents.

    We’ve written a whole page about the summer camp counsellor process, but we’ll give you the short answer, too. It was previously complicated, but it has now been made infinitely easier by our team who will help you through every step of the process!
