Details of Position

Speak Teens International Summer Camp welcomes native English-speaking teens from all over the world (our "Anglos") and English learners for a diverse and innovative English language immersion programme in the heart of Italy. We are currently looking to hire responsible, enthusiastic and friendly Camp Leaders to join our residential camp for a varied and exciting role this summer.
DATES:
Thursday 19th July 2018 - Monday 13th August 2018 (this includes paid pre-Camp training days)
We create a dynamic English immersion programme, where English is spoken every hour of every day. This unforgettable experience takes place in the heart of Italy to the south of the Emilia-Romagna region, in an incredible outdoor setting, surrounded by woodland and greenery. The combination of this fantastic camp location along with the exceptional camp facilities means we offer a varied, stimulating and unique daily timetable including: learning & communicative elements (such as one-to-ones, group discussions and debates etc.), 'typical' Summer Camp activities such as sports, arts, social and cultural activities, excursions and whole Camp events, as well as more unique camp activities such as astronomy, orienteering, outdoor cinema and more!
MAIN DUTIES & RESPONSIBILITIES:
Camp Leaders will be involved in and take responsibility for all aspects of the Camp life and thus the role is varied. The main elements of the role are:
o Pastoral care and welfare of students
o Facilitating learning sessions (One-to-Ones, discussions etc.)
o Planning, preparation and running activities - sports, group games & activities, forest walks etc. as well as whole school events
o Transfers - assisting with arrivals and departure of all students on arrival and departure days
o Excursions - taking students off-site for a full day excursions
Our Camp Leaders must have a real interest in working with children and, in particular, a strong empathy for working with international children. Although Camp Leaders are not required to teach English language lessons, we do expect them to be able to communicate effectively with our students, using an appropriate level of language to suit the group.
The safety and welfare of our students is of paramount importance at all times and this should therefore be the priority of Camp Leaders, with particular thought and attention paid to managing the children when off-site, often in busy public places.
