Love Horses?

Teach Horse Riding at Summer Camp

With Camp America NZ you get the chance to do what you love (being around horses) all day at camp - miss NZ winter and head to the States to teach kids all about your passion. 

Kelly Wilson

If you're one of those people (like us here in the Auckland office) who can't get enough of horses then this really is the perfect thing for you to do this Winter. Skip NZ cold and rain and mud and jet off to America to teach kids horse-riding all summer long!

  • We hand pick our NZ Horse Counsellors for the best camps in America - because the camps know we ride and have our own horses, they trust us to find the best staff for their summer camp for them. And we do!
  • We have jobs for all experience levels from basic trail riding (focusing on safety and fun on the trail) all the way up to Grand Prix or NZ Rep level, polocross, jumping and dressage. 
  • We have a position at a camp in America to suit you! We even have camps looking for those with natural Horsemanship Experience.


Of course the more experience in teaching kids the better - and if you have a Pony Club Certificate and or Instructors Certificate - awesome - but it's not a minimum criteria to apply. Just knowing how to ride safely and how to teach kids to do the same is enough to get position at camp where they mainly do trail rides.

The more qualifications, experience and skill you have allows us to find you the Summer Camps with the more advanced riding programs for the kids. 

There really is a camp for everyone!

We Make It Easy!

We place the best of NZ Horseriders at camp - and the camps love our Kiwi riders.
