The best way to find out what it's like to work at camp is to ask the staff themselves! Below are some rockstar staff that are proud to be apart of the ever-growing English Adventure family!

English Adventure team members come from many walks of life, but what joins us together is our love of nature and the opportunity to work with children as they grow.


Brent (USA) – Camp Manager/ Team Leader

Staff "Most of the year I teach in an Elementary school, but I keep coming back to English Adventure because it offers another perspective on working with young people. Away from the classroom the kids are more at home. Also, at camp we get to use English in a realistic way as we encourage our campers to enjoy the natural world, something most of them can't do in their urban environments. But what really keeps me coming back to EA is the staff. Something about camp allows staff to form strong bonds and EA attracts so many awesome people from around the world. By the end of one summer, you've made friends for life."



Maki (Japan) – Team Leader/ Support Staff

Staff "I had an amazing experience working at EA. I learned and received training in how to teach English to kids. If you are thinking about becoming a teacher it would be good experience. I really like kids and I want to work with kids in the future so I think this experience helped me a lot. Also I could make awesome work friends and had an awesome boss called Mike. So you will have a good time and make good friends."



Karan (USA/Japan) – Camp Manager/Team Leader


Staff
"My favorite moments at camp are when my campers and I have a little down time and are team-building through being goofy and making each other laugh! It's a true privilege to watch a shy camper build enough confidence to do something they never thought they would do prior to camp! There is a sort of magic in being able to let go of traditional expectations of behavior and to be silly beyond belief. My camp self is definitely my best self and I look forward to every season that I am able to be a part of the team!"




Kate (Australia/Japan) – Camp Manager/Team Leader


Staff
"I started working as a Team Leader for English Adventure the summer between finishing High School and starting University. It was one of the most challenging but rewarding summers of my life. Since then, I've come back to camp 4 more times. I find that camp helps me to centre my perspective on what's important in life. I've also created memories and friends for life. I recommend English Adventure for people who love working with kids (this is important!), are happy to look silly in front of their colleagues, and don't mind working hard and being challenged."
