You may be working individually or as part of a team of specialists to organise and lead coaching sessions tailored towards different age groups, abilities and gender of campers. This will provide the opportunity to introduce and teach the basics of the sport to the younger beginners as well as to help the more advanced kids improve their skills. You could also potentially coach teams in organised sports matches against other camps.

For the remainder of the day, it's likely that you'll also take on a role as a 'General Counsellor' in which you'll be assigned to take care of a specific bunk of kids during meal times and throughout the night.
