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.

2021 Covid Update - We are planning on running for summer 2021 and we are open for applications and assessments will be done online. However, there is also the possibility that we will be unable to run due to Covid. Our plan is to stay positive and get set up and ready for the summer and if we need to cancel the summer - we will do this closer to the summer. 

How to Apply & Assessment Process

Our assessments are a time to get to know you and see you interact with others. Our assessments are a relaxed affair; we make sure there is lots of fun, games and laughter.
