Feeling #FOMO trying to figure out the best way to spend your summer? Make it count by working the most fun job you can – at a summer camp! You will enjoy being in the great outdoors, gain new skills, make new friends, and have the best summer of your life. Don’t worry about finding a job because we’ll take care of that! We’ll hook you up with an exciting opportunity where you’ll help kids have a summer they will never forget (neither will you). There’s no other way to have this much fun, meet tons of new friends, and make big bucks while you’re at it.
America is a top destination for Canadians wanting to work in the summer. There are lots of camp jobs and it’s close to home. It’s the perfect way to learn more about our American neighbours, get some international work experience to beef up your resume, and earn strong US dollars so you’ll come home with even more cash in your pocket.
SWAP will find you an 8-12 week job placement as a camp counsellor (or in a support role; see below), working in an enthusiastic team of other counsellors looking to have just as much fun as you! You’ll be planning and running daily activities for campers. Improve your organizational skills and gain valuable leadership experience all while helping campers make some lifelong memories. Got some skills you want to show off? Speak multiple languages, have a lifeguarding certification, or know how to water ski? We can find the right camp for you!
There are also faith-based opportunities if you are affiliated with a specific religious group. Even if you have no previous camp experience but you love working with kids, don’t worry! We can find a camp placement suited to your personality. Whatever your background and interests, there’s a camp out there calling your name.
If working as a camp counsellor is not your thing, we have plenty of camp support positions available as well. You can work in an office/admin role, work in the maintenance department, or if you come from a culinary background, gain experience working in kitchen and food preparation for hundreds of campers. Work in a beautiful outdoor setting, watch that money build up in your bank account, and come home with new skills that will open the door to your next career.
