Ukraine: summer camp leader

Background: ABC Camp is a camp for children between 8 and 17 years old. It is located “in the middle of nowhere” in central Ukraine and is away from major cities. The full camp name is called Celyn ABC Camp and it is a camp for Ukrainian kids to learn English. The camp has been operational since summer of 2008. Staff are bilingual Ukrainians as well as Brits, Americans, and other native English speakers. The concept is that Ukrainian kids are "forced" to speak English when they are submerged into English-speaking environment.   Geography: It is situated in a pine forest and there is a river nearby which the camp uses during the day to go swimming.

What are you going to do

Typical day:

Typical day would involve 2-3 of English lessons in classes of up to 15 followed by 4-5 hours of games, adventure activities, swimming in a local river nearby, playing musical instruments, rehearsing for a play etc. Sunday is a day off and the whole camp packs up and visits a historic Ukrainian city / venue of interest.

You will be responsible for:

  • 1) Teaching English to Ukrainian children
  • 2) Supervising their leisure activities along with the Ukrainian colleagues.

It is not unusual for to combine both at the same time. Crucially, you do not need to speak Ukrainian/Russian.

This summer opportunity will not make you rich, but it will give lots of new experience, an opportunity to travel and face a new culture, and will allow you to add an impressive thing for the CV. Many past colleagues who have done this job say that this is always a talking point during subsequent job interviews.
