We Just Want You
The core of the Camp is the American Staff, a bright shinning group of 15-20 Americans who dedicate a month of their lives to the camp. We don't ask much of you, we just want your personality. Look below to discover the kind of work you will be doing, and be sure to click here to see the rewards.
About the Program
Every year, the American-Polish Partnership brings anywhere from 10-20 American volunteers to Tczew, Poland to work at our Conversational English Camp. Here volunteers can expect to be exposed to a new culture, meet amazing people, and enjoy one of the most rewarding experiences of their lives.
Dates: We typically ask the American staff to arrive in Tczew by the middle/end of the last week in June for training and set-up. Campers move in the first Sunday of July.
The Camp ends the third Saturday of July. The staff leaves for the tour on the fourth Monday and the tour concludes on that Friday.
Teachers are responsible for conducting 3 50-minute classes 5 days a week as well as a 30-minute homeroom. Classes typically revolve around a hobby or passion of yours. For example, we have had teachers who teach baseball, newspaper, cards, etc. The goal of classes is not necessarily to teach grammar or other formal English, but rather to engage students in conversation to help them practice their English and gain confidence in using it.
Teaching Assistants (TA) play a vital role in the immersion process. They assist teachers in the classrooms and sit with campers during meals to speak with them. The goal of the TA position is to create friendship and bonds with the campers to help them build confidence in using their English. No prior experience is needed to apply.
Both Teachers and TAs help organize, prepare, and conduct afternoon and evening activities. To read about some of these activities, be sure to click here.
