Summer camp counselors needed in Spain

Do you like working with children? If you are responsible, imaginative, caring and full of energy, this might be the summer job you are looking for! During the program, they are accompanied by Counselors who are in charge of managing groups of 8 to 12 children (Spaniards and volunteers who are English native speakers). The program is directed by the Program Director and the Master of Ceremonies, who will be in charge of making sure that the program is following the structure it is supposed to, as well as organizing activities, and providing support to the Counselors.

What are you going to do
