Holiday camp activity leaders wanted! We’re looking for passionate and hardworking individuals to join our amazing Elite team as we plan for the school holidays this year.

Our camp coaches are a fundamental part of our holiday childcare operation. Each member of the team contributes their own unique style of coaching and ability to engage children in to the activities being taught at camp.

The role of holiday camp activity leader involves managing a group of up to 20 children aged between 4-13 years old. Inspiring them to join in with sports games, Elite activities such as laser tag, nerf wars, bouncy fun, bubble football, as well as holiday themed arts and crafts.

Being a camp activity leader is a rewarding role, helping children learn new skills and knowledge whilst having fun and making new friends. It also looks great on your CV for future roles involving children, coaching, or teaching.

The chosen candidates will be required to work during the school holidays at one of our Multi-Activity Holiday Camps based in Abingdon, Botley, Didcot, Grove, Henley, Thame or Wallingford. With the potential for further opportunities available within Elite Youth Sports during term time.
