American Village camps are linguistic immersion camps for French children, ages 8 to 17 years old. Our primary goal is to aid and encourage French children to communicate in English, not only in the classroom, but through various activities, culture and sports, in an environment that is both secure and fun. We are not a language school, but rather a linguistic immersion camp. As such, we emphasize education through cultural exchange.
We seek creative, dynamic and energetic men and women from 19 to 35 years old. Applicants must be native English-speakers We prefer that our counselors have previous camp counseling experience. They should also be capable of teaching English to non-native speakers. This said, a TEFL certification is not a requirement. Counselors are hired for two or three month periods, and our season starts in late June.
The ideal American Village candidate should:
* be a native English-speaker or have an interest in North American culture, customs and language
*have experience as a Camp Counselor
*be capable of teaching English to non-native speakers
*be outgoing, energetic and creative
*be enthusiastic about teaching sports and/or organizing activities
*be prepared to work long days with children
Musicians are very welcome to apply, and in an effort to balance our teams, we strongly encourage male applicants.
* Work visas for citizens of North America, Australian and New Zealand
* Full room and board
* Two free nights at a hotel in Paris
