International Summer Camp UK


Working at Camp Cooper is a life-changing experience!

It's a big commitment - it can be hard work, and there are some long hours - but with big commitment comes BIG reward, and the reward for our staff will be a summer of fun, laughter, challenges and incredible memories. You'll have tons of fun taking part in new activities and sharing your talents; you'll learn to turn any item of clothing into a costume and best of all, you'll realise the positive impact you can have on the lives of our incredible campers.
