Camp Directors love hiring Kiwi staff and they want to meet you to find out how awesome you are! 

Camp America is bringing some of our favourite American Camp Directors to Auckland (from America) for one day only. Each year Camps come to New Zealand to hire awesome Kiwis like you. 

They like to hand pick in person their specialist counselor roles like watersports, tennis, golf, soccer, horse riding, waterskiing, wakeboarding, trip leaders, and lifeguards. If you make a good impression and you have the skills they are looking for - you'll likely be offered a position on the spot. 

These are some of the best camps in America, and we know them well enough now to know what they look for, so we can help you decide if it's worth a trip to Auckland if you live miles away. 

Easy Steps to the Camp Directors Fair

  1. Apply online if you haven't already
  2. Have your local interview if you haven't already - or book to be interviewed at the fair by Camp America
  3. Find out more about how to meet the camps
  4. Book your fair appointment and tell us which camps you're keen on meeting
  5. Show up on the day and make a good impression
  6. Hopefully walk away with a cool summer camp job sorted - then just relax and enjoy the rest of the Kiwi summer
If your skills don't match what the Camp Directors are looking for - don't worry - we work with 900+ other screened camps - one of which will be perfect for you.
