If you love to work with children and give back next summer, then working on an underprivileged camp is for you!
Most summer camps require parents to pay for their children to attend...but what about the kids in the USA that aren't lucky enough to come from families who can offer them this experience? Thankfully there are local authorities and charities who believe that every child deserves to experience summer camp, so they work hard to run Underprivileged Camps to give kids from disadvantaged backgrounds the chance to go to camp. Underprivileged Camps can also be known as Not For Profit Camps as they're not set up to make money unlike most other camps. The sole purpose of these camps is to allow children to enjoy being children, as they may not get this opportunity in their daily lives.
Working on a Underprivileged Camp is a hugely rewarding experience as you are truly helping to change children's lives and have a positive impact on their future. Your main role above anything else is simply to be a positive role model for the campers, so camps will look to hire staff who can offer patience, empathy but can also hold their own! These camps will hire for a variety of roles so if you think you have what it takes to work on an Underprivileged Camp, make sure you select it in the 'Camp Preferences' section of your online application.
