Work in Vietnam this summer at American Paradise Camp!

American Paradise Camp (APC) is Vietnam's first international summer camp for children between the ages of 8 and 16. Our native English speaking counselors join us each summer to give our campers from around the world a memorable and rewarding summer camp experience while immersing them in a fully English-speaking environment.

The Camp Counselor position is a full-time summer seasonal position that will happen between the middle of June and the middle of August. As a counselor you will be required to teach, lead, and be a friend to a group of children aged anywhere from 8 to 16. The primary responsibility is to ensure the children's safety and well-being and to help make the children's camp experience fun and rewarding. The tasks usually include planning, leading, and joining in activities. The daily routine will include leading a cabin group of 6-8 children and during the day teaching some our various activities. All counselors perform a wide variety of duties with children, and each day brings something new. Counselors live in cabins and eat meals with children and often spend 24 hours a day for nine weeks with them. It is a very demanding yet very rewarding experience.
