Adventure Camp Jobs in the UK

By: Sarah Manners

Adventure enthusiasts who would like to work in the UK are drawn to the possibility of becoming activity instructors at various UK based adventure camps.

Not only do you get to experience the UK at its best - you get paid for the work you do at the camps which funds your traveling. Young, enthusiastic people who enjoy working with kids are the best candidates for this type of holiday work. Applicants also need to be eligible for a Working Holiday Visa or hold an EU passport.

Working at Adventure Camps
Greg Campbell from Johannesburg is currently working at one of Kingswood's coastal camps called Overstrand Hall, in Norfolk.

He explains: "I am an Activity Instructor and teach kids a variety of activities such as abseiling, archery, problem solving, lazer quest, aeroball. We also run fun computer sessions where the kids make movies, pretend to be a pop idol and are encouraged to try create crazy recipes with worms and eyeballs! When it is not so busy we help with improvements on the centre.

Work and Qualify as an Accredited Training Instructor
"Working at an adventure camp is a great and easy way to see another country and have fun while doing it! The training I receive while working at the camp is another huge bonus as Kingswood pays for all my training and qualifications and at the end of my stay I will qualify as an accredited training instructor."

The Highlights
Simnikiwe Siqebengu is another South African who recently finished working at an adventure camp. He says, "There have been so many highs while I have been here, like seeing kids overcome their fears of heights or darkness. There have also been so many moments where I'd be playing cricket on the beach with a group or playing a racing game in the computer labs and I'd think to myself, 'Wow, I'm getting paid for this!"

"It can take some time to get used to being cold and wet. In the beginning I found it hard to say goodbye at the end of the week to kids with whom I had formed a bond but you soon get used to the schools coming in and out and the new faces."
