Experience with children

It is important that you have some previous experience of working or interacting with children. The level of experience needed for camp varies and could be anything from helping out at a club, to teaching your own sports lessons, all depending on the individual needs of the camp.

You may be able to gain more experience and thereby improve your chances, simply by asking in your local community, at schools and weekend clubs if they need any help.

If you are unsure of whether your skills or experience meet the requirements for the program, please get in contact with the Summer Camp USA coordinator at IEP for further information or clarification. Please contact us or call the team on 1300 797 702.
