    SUMMER CAMP OPENINGS! ACCOMMODATION and ALL MEALS provided, LGBT friendly!
    (PAY: 80 EUR/WEEK, meals and accommodation provided).

    We are a language school with three branches in Vilnius and one in Kaunas, as well as two campsites off the campus in the beautiful Anykščiai area. We actively participate in workaway, especially in summers.

    At the moment we are looking for native English speakers (preferably aged 21 and older), 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 2022:

    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.


    JOB DESCRIPTION

    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.

    NATURE CAMP DATES 2022 are still being set, but they start late June and go on for the length of the whole summer.

    Most important thing, please don't contact us if you have no sense of humour.
