Teach Tennis at a USA Summer Camp with BUNAC

Tennis – Being a tennis counsellor on BUNAC’s Summer Camp USA combines the responsibilities of teaching tennis with being a camp counsellor. It is a fun and rewarding, yet challenging way to spend the summer in the great American outdoors, while teaching a sport you love and developing your skills.

Tennis at camps

Camp tennis programmes vary but generally campers are grouped according to their ages and abilities You will work with them during the summer to develop their knowledge and enhance their performance in groups of between two to eight campers in hourly activity periods.

What are the facilities like?

Every sports camp (and some more general camps) operates a tennis programme and offers teaching to fit different skills and ability levels. Tennis facilities range from a couple of outdoor, rustic looking courts, to several excellent outdoor hard, clay or grass courts.

What experience or qualifications are required?

First and foremost, all camp counsellors need to have experience working with children in a leadership position. Tennis instructors also need to have a passion for tennis and a desire to share their enthusiasm and pass on their knowledge.

Coaching qualifications such UKCC, LTA Performance/Club Coach, PTR or equivalent will greatly enhance an application. Campers’ tennis skills can range from very basic to outstanding, so high competitive and personal standards will also strengthen an application, as will college, country or good club representation.
