Camp America: Work on a religious camp in the USA

If you’re Christian or Jewish, take your faith to summer camp and share your religious knowledge with fellow counsellors and campers.

Camps that have a Christian or Jewish background will require Counsellors of the same religion to help the campers learn more about their faith. Along with the day to day camp activities, you will also be expected to join in with the camp's religious traditions and encourage the campers to do the same. Christian Counsellors may be asked to deliver Bible Study sessions, whilst Jewish Counsellors will help run Shabbat on a Friday. It's likely that you will also have another type of Counsellor role such as working as a General Counsellor or specialising in a particular sport or activity.

If you are a practicing Jew or Christian, your faith and knowledge of your religion are what these camps need. On Religious Camps, Camp Directors will look to hire a mixture of staff from a range of backgrounds, however they always need Counsellors of the same faith. On your Camp America application, you will have the opportunity to talk more about your religious beliefs. Even if you're not religious, you may still get offered a place at a religious camp. Don't panic if you do! The camp will know that you're not religious but obviously feel like you are the right person for the role they are offering you.
