typical day A Typical Day in the Job

As an Outdoor adventure specialist, it’s your job to encourage campers to conquer their fears and fly through the skies…literally!

It'll be your role to set-up and instruct these activities at camp. You could be specialising in one particular area, like Rock Climbing, or getting involved in multiple Adventure activities. Different groups of kids will come to you for a period at a time throughout the day to try out whatever activities are on offer. You'll be expected to encourage the kids to get involved and spur them on, whilst ensuring of their safety at all times!

It's likely that you'll also have a role as a 'General Counsellor' in which you'll take care of a specific bunk of kids whenever you're not instructing in Adventure activities and get involved with everything else that camp has to offer!


ideal candidate Who are we looking for?

Rock Climbing, Climbing Wall/Tower and High/Low Ropes are classed as 'Advanced Skills' as they're in high demand at the camps we work with. So, if you're well qualified or trained in any of these areas, you'll be classed as an Advanced Skills Counsellor. This will make you eligible to receive a higher pocket money rate and give you a better chance of getting placed!

However, Camps take people with all kinds of experience, so if you’re up for the challenge then we highly recommend you apply!

So if you have any experience in these skills, make sure you put them on your application! If you have any qualifications/certifications in these activities you can add these in as well, which will help us determine if you're an Advanced Skills Counsellor.
