Work at Camp Suisse

Summer 2021 now open!!

IMG_6625Camp Suisse is always on the search for ambitious, highly motivated individuals to join the team.

We have a wide range of roles available: from activity leaders, language teachers and pastoral care leaders, to our support roles such as cheffing, administration and housekeeping. To join Camp Suisse is to join a summer camp which places teamwork, mutual respect and enthusiasm at the centre of everything it does, creating a unique family atmosphere among the team.

Camp Suisse colleagues come from a diverse range of countries and backgrounds; however, they all share a strong common interest in helping the development of young people, as well as a love of the outdoors.

The work is demanding, yet highly rewarding with the opportunity to meet people from around the world, and to live and work in one of the most beautiful places on Earth. If Camp Suisse sounds like your idea of a dream summer, we would love to hear from you.

Staff Profiles

Hannah, Senior Group Leader

If you want to spend your summer in the most beautiful place on earth, with a group of likeminded people doing some of the coolest things around, Camp Suisse is the place to be. I chose to apply as I love kids and liked the idea of being able to practise my French whilst on my Summer break from uni, not realising that I was about to be so content and at peace for a full three months. Camp Suisse is by far the best job I’ve ever had and I wouldn’t change it for the world.

 

Dec, Senior Group Leader

Working at Camp Suisse is the best job you’ll ever have. Life doesn’t get better than spending your days hiking up mountains, swimming in the lake Geneva or climbing in the Alps. You make some of the closest friendships, meet people from all over the world and spend time doing things that you love. It’s fun, rewarding, and you make an impact on children’s lives. There is no better way to spend a summer!
