Looking for a Fun, Rewarding School Holiday Job?
Become an Adventure Camp Group Leader!
CASUAL / VACATION
We're always on the lookout for the right people to join our team of Instructors! If you're a fun-loving person, with a positive attitude, who is passionate about the outdoors and working with kids, then we'd love to hear from you.
Here at Adventure Camp, we are all about the outdoors, and getting kids away from screens. We developed a school holiday program that is not only fun, but teaches kids awesome skills that they can apply to every aspect of life.
All the instructor roles with Adventure Camp take place during the School Holidays - making it the perfect side-job for anyone already working in schools, school care, school camps or studying at university.
On our Adventures, we have a wide range of activities and games throughout our program - many that you can learn and some that require specialist instructors - such as sailing, rafting, snorkelling etc. In these cases, you simply need to assist the expert instructor in managing the group.
Above all, Adventure Camp is about having fun outdoors. Our goal is to represent our motto of "No Kids Left Inside" and send kids home each day exhausted from having too much fun - and excited about returning.
Locations: Northbridge, Balmoral, Greenwich, Rosebay - all Lower North Shore in Sydney and now we are moving to BRISBANE !
Your Role will consist of;
Managing a group of 10-16 kids over 3 days. Working with them, developing rapport and ensuring they have a great time
Moving the group between activities, and reporting back to the camp leader at the end of each day
Learning and then leading the kids through a variety of activities and games in our program
Working closely with other group leaders to deliver larger group activities
Assisting the children in completing various challenges and tasks (without doing it for them). We want to help them succeed while encouraging them to leave their comfort zone.
Ensuring the safety of all the kids within your group, keeping track of their whereabouts
Providing basic first aid if required (First Aid Certificate is a pre-requisite for the role)
Ensuring they eat the food provided and apply sunscreen regularly
Managing any behavioural issues appropriately
Each day, we provide an activity grid and schedule - but we give each instructor a great deal of latitude to work with. We want you to be able to think on your feet, read the group vibe, and if something isn't working out, or the kids aren't enjoying it, have the ability to change direction on the spot to something else. There are very few hard and fast activities - as such, instructors need to be willing to work in a flexible environment (instructors who need a detailed and specific plan for every day tend to not enjoy our style of camp). We want our instructors to bring a lot of energy to the role, and ideally, have as much fun as the kids they are caring for.
As an instructor, you need to be willing to engage in the games and activities also - this means bushwalking, swimming, running etc.
We also require you to have a Working with Children Check
valid First Aid certificate (including CPR)
evidence of at least 3 years working with kids in a similar capacity
Having a lifeguard or lifesaving qualification is desirable, but not essential.
If all of this sounds like a good fit for you, I'd love you to send us a resume and we'll be in touch.
