AmeriCamp, a company sourcing staff for the Summer Camp sector in the USA and Canada has awarded the contract to identify suitable young people interested in spending the summer of 2020 in the USA to Equipeople.
Caroline Lane, Managing Director said “Young Irish horse people are very popular in summer camps throughout the US and Canada because of our strong horse knowledge and friendly nature. This is why AmeriCamp have asked Equipeople to identify at least 100 suitable young people interested in a fun filled summer in 2020. Equipeople are thrilled to work with AmeriCamp because they offer the highest salary rate, the lowest fees and still maintain a high support service to each applicant”
AmeriCamp have longstanding partnerships with a multitude of camps not only in the USA but Canada as well. Cat Tomlinson of AmeriCamp said “ We are very keen to welcome young Irish horse people, because of their high standards of horse knowledge and friendly personalities, We welcome people of all level of riding, from assisting with lessons and basic horse care all the way up to qualified instructors ”. Camps range from traditional camps where campers try a variety of activities to camps specialising in riding and horse care and so people with a wide variety of experience are needed. All meals and accommodation are included in the camp and applicants get paid between $1600 – $1850 (depending on age & experience). The visa obtained is known as a ‘camp counsellor’ visa, this also allows an extra 30-day travel after camp has ended. This is a very exciting opportunity for those looking for something exciting to do next summer.
