What does a swimming instructor do at summer camp?
Jump in – being swimming instructor is an active, exciting and highly rewarding role at camp.
As a swim instructor, you’ll spend most of your time down at the pool or waterfront, helping campers learn and practise their swim strokes. From first time nervous swimmers to olympic level powerhouses, you can expect diversity in the skill level of the swimmers, their confidence and the support needed.
You may even play an active role in the lifeguarding team whilst other swim instructors lead sessions or at camp-wide pool parties.
You need to be a strong swimmer and if you don’t have previous experience in teaching swim you must demonstrate you are able to. A director is going to want to know your experience level and coaching style and how you will bring energy and fun to the pool side.
Why should I teach swimming at camp?
If you are looking for a rewarding summer and you love being in and around the water then why not take the opportunity to teach others to swim.
Swim Teachers are highly sought after by summer camp. Camp Directors are looking for responsible and motivated individuals who really want to help campers improve their swimming skills. Showing your enthusiasm and knowledge is key.
It’s a fantastic way to gain more experience, increase your coaching performance and above all, have the chance do it in the USA.
