Internship in Laugar
camp | fun | nature
Are you an energetic person who enjoys the adventure that visiting a new and fascinating place brings at the same time as you would like to develop your leadership skills? In this case, working at Camp Laugar would be perfect for you. We are seeking young students in the age group 18-30 who are interested in working and interacting with teenagers in the age group 14-16 years old while they visit our camp in the northwestern part of Iceland.
Your work will consist of holding both indoor and outdoor classes, meaning that, apart from interacting with the teenagers, you will receive the opportunity to experience the spectacular environment that the northwestern part of Iceland offers. Since the purpose of this camp is to give the teenagers the chance to step out of their comfort zone and strengthen their confidence, most classes you will have charge over should consist of team-building activities. These are to create a friendly atmosphere in the groups where the kids will be able to grow as individuals by feeling that it is alright to do wrong sometimes.
This is a weekly camp, meaning that teenagers arrive around lunch time on Monday and leave after breakfast on Friday. Every week new 9th graders arrives and therefore the layout of the weeks will always be the same. This gives our camp a lot of structure, and one might think it would become repetitive, but since all children are different, every week is unlike the other. The amount of working hours will be the same every week for you as a volunteer, but your daily working hours will vary during the weeks.
At Camp Laugar we always want to improve for the better and therefore we have a very open atmosphere where new creative ideas concerning your classes are always welcome. When working with teenagers it is important that you as a person have certain qualities. Individuals who are tolerant, responsible, trustworthy, energetic and social are encouraged to apply for the position.
Working here at Laugar will provide you the opportunity to interact and meet new people, experience the overwhelmingly beautiful landscape of Iceland and let you develop your leadership skills. In the encouraging and positive environment where everyone strives to achieve the best result by collaboration you will have the best chance to grow as an individual as well as a leader.
