Currently looking for English speakers (B2 and above) to join our off season camp openings on these dates:
HALLOWEEN CAMP (NOV 2-5)
CHRISTMAS CAMP (DEC 27-30)
These are short 3 night projects where you join our team and work with 11-17 year old teenagers in a themed camp that takes place on the countryside (Anyksciai area). You are provided with meals, accommodation, training and amazing colleagues! Your main role will be to keep the campers engaged, to follow the schedule and to prepare a few activities on your own (being able to manage a 20-teen-big audience is a must).
If you're planning your next summer already, read on!
SUMMER CAMP 2024 OPENINGS! ACCOMMODATION and ALL MEALS provided, LGBT friendly!
(PAY: 80 EUR/WEEK, meals and accommodation provided).
We are a language school with two branches in Vilnius and one in Kaunas, as well as three campsites off the campus in the beautiful Anykščiai/Utena area. We actively participate in workaway, especially in summers.
At the moment we are looking for native English speakers, also non-natives with no less than B2 in English who would be able and willing to work with kids/teens NATURE camps in Anykščiai area (that is a remote rural area, the closest small town Anykščiai is about 16 kilometers away, so lots of nature, zero clubs for parties).
If you are natively English, American, Canadian or Australian (or a non-native with great English), love teaching and a good laugh, are relaxed and independent, can communicate with very different people and do little moaning, then do contact us. After the camp we'll gladly provide you with a certificate and references for your future projects if needed.
POSITIONS AVAILABLE for 2024:
Camp Teacher in Summer NATURE Camp (ANYKSCIAI AREA) - will suit you well if you love nature and teenagers are more interesting than annoying to you :)
N.B. We'd be delighted to welcome people with medical/first aid training who would be able to take care of minor health problems of the campers.
The responsibilities will include independently (using our resources or the internet) preparing activities and organising classes/seminars/workshops in English to kids and teens in a fun and entertaining way. The responsibilities will NOT include moaning and nagging and being lazy. We're expecting you to be quick witted and flexible, so that we can trust you with a group of 10 kids/teenagers to manage during activity time. Sense of humour, ability to relate and talk to teens as well as show initiative in organising all types of activities would be very useful.
Please bear in mind that the campers may range from zero English to quite fluent.
We also would like to emphasise that the main purpose of our camps is fun and entertainment, education is not our primary goal (it's summer!), so do not be afraid to apply if you have zero teaching experience.
In Anykščiai nature camps you'll be on the same campsite with all teachers and teenagers (around 40-50 of them) all the time so be prepared for lots of social interaction. It would be great if you could prepare at least 5 group games as an activity you can use when you run out of ideas, just to be on the safe side (can be outdoor or indoor activities, most important that they do not require too much stuff and preparation time).
If you have questions, do not hesitate to ask. We'll arrange a Skype or messenger interview for all candidates before we decide and discuss your arrival details.

If you're a man, you better be strong because you'll do a lot of lifting. Also, my humor never bites, I'm hilarious.
This place feels more like a family than somewhere to work, they have rescued me out of awkward situations, embraced my Britishness and have been real friends to me. Aurelija, Jurga and Viktorija have gone out of their way most days to help me and I will always appreciate that. Everyone here has an amazing sense of humour and I am already sad
