  • Description

    Description

    Our camp is an English language summer camp for kids aged 7-17 yo. It's a community of campers and amazing staff members who've worked with us since 2009.

    We always find some comfy hotels nestled in the nature (mountains, conservation areas etc) where we do a variety of activities including projects (art, technologies, business, media...), English lessons, workshops and traditional camp stuff like sports, nature and super cool evening events!

    We have about 50% rate of returning team members (both internationals and Ukrainians) which we really appreciate, and even bigger percentage of kids coming back every season.

    We run camps throughout the year, however our biggest season is SUMMER where we'd love you to join us if you feel like this description below is about YOU!

    We've got two main roles for internationals:
    1) English teachers (about 6h/day, project-based lessons with academic and conversational English, prior experience is needed, at least 1 year)
    2) Camp counselors (all day long basically with 2-3 hours off (we are flexible here so let's discuss), but really exciting things to do with kids and team! running all sorts of workshops with kids, sports activities, evening events etc)

    All staff members have 1 day off per week so you can stay at the camp base, go to town or enjoy the nature!
    The wage starts from 280 USD per 2 weeks. If you stay longer it goes up session by session (each 2 weeks). Also we have a limited travel reimbursement up to 200 USD.

    Usually our campsites are located quite far from big cities but in the middle of the nature so on your days off you can enjoy the mountains, the conservation areas, forests, rivers or going to the nearest towns which are not far away.
