A) 3-6 Month Contracts: Camp Counsellors and Teachers
We are looking for monitors (or counsellors) to work on our School Camps. These camps
are mini residential camps that typical run between 3-5 days in our site in El Puerto de Santa Maria, located between Cadiz and Jerez. These camps largely take place in the months of February-March and May-June, however this depends on when schools wish to have them.
When we have a school camp you will live on the camp site (which is in the same town) where you will be a monitor or group leader to a group of the kids. During these camps you will be a role model, friend, instructor and hero to campers aged from 6-17 years (depending on what camp you work at). Your main role will be to run activities and sports with them, although you will also supervise them during various parts of the day including projects, crafts, evening entertainment, and waking up and putting to bed. This type of work means long hours and lot’s of energy, but it is also fun and engaging work in beautiful surroundings.
In 2017, we had a total of 9 School Camps between February – March and for 2018 we hope to grow that number to 10-15 camps that run for 2-5 days each. This means that, more often than not, we don’t have any School Camps running. When we don’t have these then our camp staff will assist with preparations for upcoming School Camps, be it preparing materials, developing materials, or assisting with any administration necessary. To make up for the long hours that staff do on the camps we try to make this up by giving staff an extra full day off after the camps (when possible). Between programmes staff only work a few hours each day, to allow them to enjoy the sunny south of Spain and it’s beautiful surroundings.
For those interested, we would love to offer positions on our summer camps in July and August. With our ongoing training and development, we hope that you will be prepared to either become a full TEFL teacher on one of our summer camps, or possibly be a Activity Coordinator; a position whereby you would be a manager of a team of up to 20 staff.
B) Daily Contracts: Work one camp!
If you aren’t interested in working year round then why not sign up to our school camp mailing list where we let you know about upcoming programmes that we are looking for staff. for
