eHello understands that Education can happen in many different settings, “Out Door Education” is a great place for young people to grow their confidence, improve their English Skills, experience the USA and have the experience of a lifetime.
Becoming a Summer Camp Staff member requires you have the ability to join in the fun with our campers, walking playing games, and enjoying being out of doors in all-weather except for the rain, but wearing a swim suit and playing in the rain is fun!
Over the 2 week’s campers are with us, there will be some “Day Trips” to some very cool places. You will be group leaders making sure all the campers we take make it back to camp. The day trip locations will provide guides so you will help keep a semblance of order with your group.
One of our main goals is to improve our camper’s English skills. This happens in the daily Online English Classes and you may serve as a Teaching Assistant for our Online Teacher. Of course everything is in English when campers hit camp, and if they make pronunciation errors, or use the wrong vocabulary camp staff help them with corrections.
Staff and campers have comfortable accommodations, great food, and plenty of fun time. Staff, on a rotating basis will be with their camper groups 24/7, these are kids and teens from a foreign country so we have to keep them safe. But you do get your own “Down Time”. Camp sessions runs from a Sunday for 2 weeks and Ends on a Saturday. You get a 1 week break between camp sessions.
