No registration fees and higher salaries (allowing applicants have some decent spending money for after camp, rather than an age based pocket money scheme you'll find elsewhere) make Wild Packs stand out from the crowd!

Most importantly Wild Packs allow you to have choice and input into what type of camp you’d feel most comfortable working at. We want to get to know you, so that we can find you a position at a camp that’s just right for you. In our books, happy counselors equal happy campers!

Never will you wake up and find you are randomly placed at a camp. You will check out their website, speak with the Wild Packs team about the camp and most importantly speak with the director, allowing you to gain valuable insight into the workings of the camp, their campers, their staff and their philosophy. We offer a completely personal and tailored service to all. We will support and guide you through the application process; all of our team work for various camps in the US over the summer, so we know our stuff!

gap year project highlights Highlights

You could have the summer of your life getting to grips with inflatables, ski boats, sailing dinghies, inflatable assault courses and more

typical day What's it like

A typical day on this gap year project

Your primary job in a water environment is to keep kids safe and so that has to come first.

After that, your job will be to think of fun games to play with the kids so they and you can enjoy a fantastic summer. You’ll also be socialising with people your age and enjoying days off where you can hang out with your new friends or explore the sights near your camp.

But don’t worry if you think taking one of these roles will prevent you from enjoying general camp life and related activities – there will be plenty of opportunities to meet and socialise with everyone and be involved with all the other fun things going on at camp.

ideal candidate Project Requirements

Who would be a suitable participant?
