What is summer camp?

Each year, Chinese camp directors hire staff from all across the world to teach campers new skills and become positive role models throughout the summer.

Your young person will return more responsible and mature, with a well-rounded outlook on the world.

Benefits of working at summer camp

Boost your CV

Working at summer camp will increase employability & is great to add to a CV.

A job at summer camp in China develops independence, drive and determination. These traits are recognised & heavily valued by employers around the world.

Build your character

Summer camp can be a tough job. Staff learn to develop grit and determination to contribute towards a successful summer.

At camp, your young person will be held accountable for keeping to the busy camp schedule, upholding their role at camp, and maintaining a level of professionalism.

A safe place to work

We hand-pick our partnering camps, ensuring they place a high value on providing a safe environment.

We visit all of our camps each year, maintaining a trusting relationship with the best, most diverse camps across China. If we wouldn't send our own kids there, we wouldn't send yours, either.

Global network

Summer camp staff in China are hired from across the world. This will expose your young person to multiple cultures, allowing them to build a global network.

Most individuals go to summer camp on their own, meaning that they form honest, true friendships as they share a unique experience with like-minded people.

Afford travel

The F1 visa lasts for 90 days. Most staff will travel after camp for the remaining days on their visa.

This is a safe, affordable opportunity to explore China in a way that works for them.

Camp staff will receive pocket money for their time at camp, so your young person can travel China without having to save up too much beforehand.
