Volunteering Abroad Shouldn't Cost the Earth

Summer Camp Counsellor Honduras

 

Description

We seek approximately 10 - 12 Summer Camp Counsellors for our annual Summer Camp for children in 1st through 5th grade. The camp is structured to provide our students with opportunities to remain immersed in the English language over the summer through fun games and activities - making the transition back to classes in August less difficult and preventing summer learning loss. All Summer Camp Counsellors will connect via email and on-boarding calls prior to coming to Honduras to brainstorm ideas for activities and an overarching theme. The Camp's theme will be tied together through reading & writing, arts & crafts, and physical education activities. Summer Camp runs from 8am - 12pm Monday through Friday. Lunch is served at the school for camp counsellors and the remainder of the afternoon is free for you to plan the next day's lessons and/or to go on home visits. Over the weekends, most volunteers travel throughout Honduras to go to the beach, lake, or mountains, or to nearby Copan to explore the Mayan Ruins.
