So, how do you fancy spending the summer months on the beach in Miami, basking in the glorious sunshine and surrounded by the many glamorous celebrities who make this city their home during the summer months?
Ok, well summer camp jobs in Miami might not be totally about this but there is certainly time to indulge in some fun activities and hang out at the famous south shore beach during time away from camp.
Miami is a bustling city located in Florida which is home to a very diverse range of residents from all over the world. Each summer local children from the Miami area and from other parts of Florida spend a fun week participating in all kinds of activities at one of the many different summer camps located in Miami.
So what will life be like at a camp in Miami? You will be expected to arrive at the camp some time in early June to participate in staff training, this will normally last around two weeks and will go over all of the details related to the camp and how it operates when campers are in attendance, you will spend time figuring out the day to day schedule, safety procedures and who is responsible for what aspects of camp operations.
After the initial training period, campers will arrive and will generally stay for a week at a time. Most camps in Miami and the rest of the US are residential sleep over camps were children will stay on site in cabins 24 hours a day. As the camp counselor you will be responsible for supervising campers and on some camps you will even sleep in the same cabins as the kids to ensure order is maintained when lights are out.
During the day you will participate on all types of different activities, if you are working at a traditional outdoor camp you will participate in water sports, outdoor adventure activities such as rock climbing rappelling and ropes courses, you may even end up on the back of a horse doing a little spot of trekking. There are a range of different types of camps and these all offer slightly different summer camp jobs in Miami, if you are working at a more educational camp then the activities may be of a more educational nature, if it is a religious camp then activities will be more centered on faith, it really just depends on the type of camp you are employed at.
