Rock Climbing / Ropes at Summer Camp USA

Job Details


Have the summer of a lifetime working at an American summer camp, the great tradition where the only philosophy is to have fun and make new mates, all day everyday. International staff like you bring variety, personality and new skills to camp, and this year it’s your turn to get out there. Book onto the programme today with a £39 deposit, and spend 8-10 weeks working and living the American dream.

With over 52 years of experience in helping young people work abroad, we have helped 250,000 people to adventure and see the world with BUNAC. Join the revolution.


Introduce the kids at Camp to this exciting adventure sport! Ropes and rock climbing are activities where safety is paramount, so you will be expected to be safety conscious, hard-working and motivated. You should also have a fun and enthusiastic approach to adventure activities and working with children in general.

Awards which may strengthen your application include the British Mountaineering Awards (BMC) and climbing qualifications (UKCC), although neither is essential. Good personal experience of teaching ropes and/or climbing is usually sufficient.

Activity instructors are in high demand, and you’ll rack up over 1000 hours of quality coaching time - perfect experience to add to your CV! Above all, you’ll make a huge positive impact to children’s lives.
