Summer Camp Jobs in England and the rest of the UK
England may not be renowned for having the most fantastic summers but if it is your ambition to work overseas and find a summer camp job then there are numerous opportunities in England and the rest of the United Kingdom.
One great thing about working as a summer camp counselor in England is that it is a very small country but there is so much to do and see. Whether you are interested in checking out all of the action that takes place in London or would like to escape the crowds and explore the wonderful countryside you will not be disappointed.
Summer camps are not quite as popular in England as they are in the likes of France and Spain due to the climate which some what limits outdoor activities throughout the year, even in the summer months. Having said that there are a number of companies that have purpose built centers to host summer camps during the warmer months.
Unlike traditional summer camps found in the United States, summer camps in England are more designed to accommodate groups of school children that sign up as one large party and visit the camp for durations of 1 - 2 weeks.
Some of the more established providers of summer camps in England include...
PGL - Established many years ago in the UK, PGL offers all kinds of fun activities holidays for school parties wanting to experience a summer camp environment. Camp counselor jobs with PGL are offered year round but they employ the majority of their staff members through the busy summer months.
ISSOS - Based in Scotland the ISSOC offers summer programs at two different locations, one north of the border in Scotland and one in Southern England. They employ summer staff in the UK to help run programs during the summer months and offer a variety of positions.
The Challenge Network - Based in Southern England, The Challenge Network runs week long activities camps and school holiday camps for children between the ages of 10 - 16. They also offer various summer jobs in England and require staff to fulfil various roles within their organizations.
What They Say
"I worked as an activities instructor several years ago for PGL in the heart of England. It was such a fun experience and I got to participate in all kinds of interesting adventures such as horseback riding, kayaking, zip lining to name just a few. It is hard work but is also so rewarding especially if you enjoy working with children."
