Getting wet 'n' wild

Most of the camps we work with are based beside scenic lakes that are used for swimming, all types of water sports and even paddle boarding. As each kid’s safety is paramount we need numerous qualified lifeguards to work at camps across the US. That’s where you come in.

You’ll spend your day teaching swimming, keeping on eye on anyone near or in the water and generally making sure everyone’s having fun. Safely, of course!

Why Camp USA?

The summer of a lifetime

Two months working in the sunny outdoors, plus a month of US travel to go wherever the wind takes you. #livingthedream

A job that never feels like work

Get the role you're born to do - where you're appreciated, where you have fun and where your loud voice/ embarrassing laugh is actually encouraged!

The chance to learn new skills

And to remember ones you've forgotten you had. Remember when you were convinced you'd be a world-class actress? You've got the green light to wow on that stage.

Craic on tap

We mean banter. Of course. It's an experience fuelled by silliness, by acting like a big kid yourself and by having the time of your life. And actually getting paid for it!

What does a performing arts instructor do at summer camp?

Some camps we work with are specifically ‘performing arts’ camps or your camp might have an arts programme within the camp. Either way you’ll spend the summer on the stage.

Campers love to perform and won’t miss the chance to jump under the spotlight! Morning and afternoons will be spent running fun lessons for a variety of ages and abilities. Lessons can vary from dance, improv, acting, musical theatre, ballet, singing, film writing and everything else in between.

One thing for certain is you’ll be involved in organising the big end of season production where your campers and the performance arts department will get to show off their abilities!
