Calling all past campers aged 16-18 – we still have spaces for this summer’s Camp Mentor Programme!
This is a development programme aimed at ex-campers aged 16-18 who, after experiencing life as a camper, would like to take on more responsibility at Camp Suisse.
The Camp Mentor Programme starts at pre-season staff training week (28th June 2015). During this week mentors will undertake a large majority of the staff training, including orientation and induction courses, basic first aid, activity and leadership training, the Camp Suisse ‘Child Protection’ qualification and more.
Once our young campers have arrived for the session, our mentors will leap into action alongside the rest of the team. Duties include assisting Group Leaders and Language Teachers with their daily routines, supporting staff with activities, helping with campers, and learning about the inner workings of day-to-day life at Camp Suisse.
Camp mentors can look forward to gaining first-hand experience leading and assisting younger campers in activity sessions as well as invaluable work experience in a professional educational environment. As with all our campers and staff alike, we are committed to developing leadership skills as well as teaching new hard and soft skills.
Mentors have the opportunity, where appropriate, to assist with language classes and to work with our younger campers contributing positively to their pastoral care, welfare and to their enjoyment at camp, and sharing their own experiences from their time as a camper.
If you’re an interested past camper aged 16+ you can apply for our mentor scheme. For more information please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org.
