FROM-$750-/ 9 WEEKS

Fancy a summer camp job in China? With Smaller Earth you can live the dream & spend up to 9 weeks working & experiencing life at a Chinese summer camp.

Located in Beijing, Qingdao and travelling along the Chinese-Mongolian border, these American style summer camps are bringing fun, adventure, English language and life skills to Chinese children and teenagers all summer long.

So if  a trip to the People’s Republic, with food, accommodation AND flights included, sounds like a dream come true, give us a call today and our awesome team will take care of you!

Types of Summer Jobs

We have been matching people up with camps for over 15 years now. We ask you what you like, we ask them what they like, then we find you the perfect match. We’re like the Cupid of the summer camp world. Except we wear pants.

Camp Counselor 

If you love working with children and feel confident with teaching or coaching then the camp counselor role is for you. Typically, you will be living in a cabin with one or a couple of co-counselors and 6-9 children, although it could be more or less depending where you are placed. You will be responsible for getting the kids up and ready, getting the cabin in order and delivering your well-groomed and nicely dressed children at their activities. Whilst your campers are at their activities you will be teaching your own lessons in a variety of skills before coming back together for some group bonding time.

Full Preparation

Unlike America, getting a Visa for China is far easier. The even better news is we're here to help assist you through the application process and find you a placement that suits your ideals for the summer as well as assist you with all the necessary documentation. You could be working from anywhere between June and August, with time to travel after and we can give you lots of tried and tested tips for that too.

We will even go as far as to sort your flight out for you and ensure you have full instructions on how to get from your US departure airport to the front doorstep of camp. Our office is packed full of passionate and knowledgeable summer camp alumni who have lived through every step of this journey before. We can answer all of your questions and we’ve probably asked most of them ourselves in the past too. We can’t pack your suitcase for you, but you will know exactly what to put in it by the time the summer comes around.
