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. 


As the regional manager you will be the most experienced and qualified member at Camp Xplode. Your main role will be to support, motivate and provide feedback to all the managers across the Camps. Your job will require excellent communication, organisation and initiative. Dedication to delivering top-notch Camps for children is a must and holding teaching/coaching qualifications would assist your application.


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!


Follow the leader! Your job is to organise the younger children and lead their activities. Your experience with early years will allow you to enthusiastically lead games and activities, get everyone involved and really show your passion for fun and creative play!


Sports and games are your thing? You could be studying a sport degree/qualification or simply just have a massive enthusiasm for being active. If you’ve got some fun games up your sleeve and past experience in teaching children, this could be the job for you!


Are you a netball fanatic, live for sharing your passion for football or are a bit of dolphin when it comes to swimming? If you have a high level of experience in a specific sport, including participation and teaching, you could fit right in with the Camp Xplode team! You will have a broad knowledge of activities and games suited to your sport and will show dedication in portraying this love to children.


This role involves management of a team of Tribe Leaders, as well as the day-to-day responsibilities of running an inspiring bushcraft camp, you will be looking after your camp through facilitating activities for students during their stay with us. We will teach you all you need, then you will ensure our high standards, quality, pastoral care, safeguarding, health and safety are maintained throughout. This role requires enthusiasm, passion, and to lead by example as you will be a role model for young people, ensuring they leave camp with positive memories that will last them a lifetime.

You do not necessarily need to come from an outdoor education background, or indeed a bushcraft background (we employ many ex-teachers but there is no typical ‘sort of person’), as you will complete extensive in-house training, and mentoring before you work on a course. However, you do need to want to be part of a team whose aim is not simply to give students a taste of adventure, but to inspire a lifetime of it.

Camp Xplode and The Tribal Way are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff, volunteers and other third parties to share this commitment.  Safer recruitment practice and pre-employment background checks will be undertaken before any appointment is confirmed. 


As part of the Camp Xplode team, the Swimming Coach is responsible for the planning, preparation and delivery of all swimming sessions for groups of children aged between 3 and 16 years old. Children on camp are grouped into three age categories; 5-7s, 8-10s, 11-17s. The Camp Xplode Camps swimming programme includes a prescribed range of swim coaching activities as well as fun games and themed sessions.



We’re looking for an experienced and (preferably) qualified individual to oversee our drama and dance activities. If you want to share your enthusiasm and passion about performing arts, and enjoy working with children and helping them learn and develop then we’d be a perfect fit!


We’re looking for individuals that enjoy working with children. They must have an understanding of providing a safe learning environment, as well as the ability to empathise and build rapport with children. If you pursue a career in childcare, and looking to gain more experience within the field then this is the perfect place to start!


We’re looking for a creative individual to oversee all our arts and crafts activities. If you can plan and deliver innovative arts and crafts activities, that both engage and develop the creativity of children, then don’t hesitate to get in touch!
