one team

It’s our staff who really make the difference by creating a secure, happy environment and it’s our staff whom children remember for making their holiday so special. That is where you guys come in!! We reward staff by actively looking to promote from within our teams, so many of our staff return year after year. 


The primary role of the Regional Manager is to be the link between Head Office and our venues. As a Regional Manager, you would be expected to complete site visits ensuring that good practice and camp procedures are being put into place by completing inspections and evaluations, before feeding this back to Head Office.


Head of the pack! You will be in charge of all the team at Camp. With your high level of knowledge and experience of working with children, you will be making sure everything goes smoothly. Your job is to open and close Camp, direct your fellow colleagues, interact with parents and make sure everyone is safely having fun!


The Early Years Leader position is one of our most important roles on camp, and probably the most rewarding. Working with our youngest campers in our Bears club, our Early Years staff are there to oversee and deliver activities and supervision to our 3 and 4 year olds. Our Bears club is Ofsted registered and follows the EYFS statutory framework. No one day is the same!


Our Welfare Officers are Assistant Managers on our busier day camps. They are also the first point of contact for any safeguarding incident on site. They are there to assist the Site Manager in implementing the company’s policies and procedures, and there to support camp staff with all health and safety aspect of camp ensuring all standards are met. There are also residential Welfare Officer positions available for our language school program in which they are expected to be a point of contact for accommodation matters outside of regular camp times also.


Group Leaders are our Camp Counsellors. As a Group Leader, you will be given a group of campers (in the age range between 5 and 15) and will be responsible for their management and well-being throughout the day. Rather than delivering activities, you will be expected to ensure your campers are where they need to be, assisting the Activity Leader where appropriate. You will have to ensure correct supervision is always maintained, along with the individual needs of your campers.


Our Bushcraft Leaders work with our popular Wolves club, delivering outdoor education and forest school skills to our most adventurous campers. Developing survival skills through activities such as fire lighting, den and shelter building, orienteering, foraging, knife work, and cooking amongst much more. If you’re passionate about the outdoors, and confident to deliver appropriate activities to our campers, this is the role for you!


Our sports, arts & crafts, and performing arts activities are all delivered by our Activity Leaders. Usually specialised in a particular area, you’d be expected to plan and deliver creative and engaging sessions for our campers. Ensuring the sessions are age appropriate, there’s a huge emphasis on learning and developing through fun, games based activities.


Our Swimming sessions are by far the most popular activity for our campers. In order to deliver these sessions, we need qualified lifeguards and swim teachers to oversee these sessions. Deliver swim lessons, oversee pool games, or supervise free play from pool side. We are always looking for lifeguards on our camps!


During our camps and especially over Summer, we take campers on a number of adventures to various exciting places such as Flamingo Land, Swithens Farm, Go Ape and much, much more! Our Excursion Leaders are those that supervise the campers on these trips. While we love for our Excursion Leaders to enjoy the adventures and experiences themselves, the priority is to ensure the safety of our campers while off site.


Our Activity Specialists deliver focused sessions to small groups of campers, with the aim to develop more skill in a particular area through more structured and progressive sessions compared to regular camp activities. These specialist activities include Archery, Football, Tennis, Swimming, Baking, Science, Performing Arts.
