Residential Summer Camp Leaders in Italy

Speak Teens International Summer Camps bring together English language Learners and native English-speaking teens from all over the world for a unique and innovative English language immersion programme in Italy. We are looking for responsible, enthusiastic and friendly Camp Leaders to join one of our two residential camps for a varied and exciting role this summer.

What are you going to do:

Speak Teens will be running two summer camps in 2020: The combination of our fantastic camp locations in Italy and exceptional camp facilities means we offer a varied, stimulating and unique daily timetable. Camp Leaders will be involved in and take responsibility for all aspects of camp life.

Our English Adventure Summer Camp is located at the Hotel Rifugio Sores, set in the beautiful mountains and valleys of the Trentino region. This camp is for English Learners aged 10-14, joined by Anglo Guides, our native-English speaking teens, aged 15-17.

Our English Discovery Summer Camp is located at Valbonella, set in the stunning natural environment and forested valleys of Emilia-Romagna. This camp is for English Learners aged 12-16, joined by Teen Anglos, our native English-speaking teens, aged 12-16.

Immersive Learning: Speak Teens offers English language Learners a unique experience in Italy: to improve their English with the support of English teachers as well as teenage mother-tongue English speakers, our Anglos. For the Learners, the camp may be the first opportunity they have had to put their English into practice with native English speakers. Morning sessions play a key role in attending to English language needs, and during this period the Camp Leader role varies: for experienced teachers, you may be responsible for teaching a group of Learners, whilst for Camp Leaders without a teaching background, your role will be to support Learners and Anglos in their one-to-one conversations.

Additional responsibilities:Camp Leaders are responsible for planning, preparing and running camp activities such as sports, swimming, arts, excursions; unique camp experiences such as outdoor cinema, orienteering, and astronomy, as well as whole camp events. Camp Leaders also assist in arrival and departure days and airport transfers, taking students off-site for full day excursions, and are responsible for the pastoral care and welfare of students.
