Camp Counsellor (Ages 17+)

The EA is offering the Camp Counsellor Course as an opportunity for 17+ year olds to further their training and experience of working with young people. It is recommended for school leavers thinking ahead to working as a camp counsellor in summer 2019

This is an opportunity to acquire the skills necessary for this popular student work opportunity in the USA and elsewhere.  It commences with a self-catering 5 day training programme to be followed by practical experience on two of the following summer camps run at Gortatole. 

Only individual applications with full course fee will be accepted.  Places will normally be allocated on a first come first served basis as they are received however the EA reserves the right to accept applications for this course on other than a first-come-first-serve basis.  This would be done to achieve a balance amongst participants as well as ensuring suitability to work with young people - Applicants may be asked to attend an information day/interview before places are allocated. The closing date represents an administrative arrangement by which the course viability is judged and applicants informed of their allocation.  Any empty places will continue to be filled on a first come first served basis - early booking is advised.  The EA Youth Service reserves the right to retain all or some of the course fee in the event of a cancellation.
