France is an amazing country with all kinds of fantastic places to visit and activities to take part in. If you have your heart set on working as a summer camp counselor in France you will certainly have a memorable time.
Before you rush out and start applying for all of the summer camp jobs in France you may want to take a moment and think about a few things....
1 - Are you good working with children? Summer camps are generally for children between the age of around 10 - 16. If you enjoy working with children and think this will be something you will enjoy then great! If not you may want to think about another option or look at some positions available at summer camps in France that don't specifically involve working with children on a daily basis.
2 - What are your qualities, skills and credentials? It is no good applying to be a scuba diving instructor if you don't know the first thing about scuba diving! If you apply for a job that you are not qualified to do you will either have to stumble your way through and not enjoy the experience or get found out and most likely released by the camp employer.
3 - What activities do you enjoy? There are all kinds of different camps on offer in France with different themes, arts camps, language camps, outdoor wilderness camps and many more. Think about what you like to do and find out what specific camps offer before you go applying.
4 - Find out the details! Each position and summer camp company requires different roles from their staff members. Think about important questions to ask, is there a minimum contract commitment? How many hours a day do you work? How many days off a week do you get?
