HAVE FUN WHILE WORKING AT A SUMMER CAMP IN THE U.S.!

What is a summer camp?

Summer camps are an American tradition that is over 150 years old! Each year, millions of kids go to their safe haven in nature to practice what they love the most. This is why experts are hired to guide them and help them get better at what they like to do the most.

Camps are immersed in natural surroundings, be it lakes, rivers, mountains, forests or beaches outside the cities. Here you get to experience sleeping in yurts, tents, hammocks, cabins, dorms or camping hotels.

Each camp has its own different history, but you can say something they all have in common: their owners are passionate about camping and the excellent formative experience they leave engraved in each of the campers. They all have different traditions, rites, styles and environments, all enabling the camper to learn, make mistakes, enjoy and have fun while in a safe environment where his or her counselor makes sure to help them find the best version of themselves.

Each year has its own flavor and is written in a different type of ink. We invite you to write your own story and have the best summer of your life.
