The Abridge EduCamp program offers partner camps a convenient camp counsellor or tutor recruitment platform with significant benefits – from candidate screening to high quality, accredited training.
Why Abridge EduCamp?
Our EduCampers are typically native English speakers, study at the world’s top universities, and have previous teaching or coaching experience.
In 2019, over 80% of EduCampers came from the UK or USA, 70% studied Oxbridge or Ivy League universities, and all have relevant previous experience.
Do you find yourself wasting hours sifting through ineligible applications and carefully wording rejection emails? We pre-screen all candidates, so you can be confident that all meet our minimum eligibility criteria, have had their documents checked (including police record checks) and paid a deposit to ensure their commitment before connecting with you.
Our user-friendly online platform enables you to browse verified candidates or receive applications from them directly, easily schedule interviews and discuss next steps.
We have also developed a comprensive yet flexible onboarding system to help you recruit and prepare incoming camp counsellors.
We provide all EduCampers with our internationally accredited 120 hour online TEFL training course. This was custom developed for summer camp counsellors, with specialisms available in experiential learning or content and language integrated learning (CLIL).
Additionally, we offer them free access to our database of over 150 summer camp lesson plans and resources, great to get them started on classroom-based camps!
The Abridge EduCamp program is funded by a combination of program fees from camp counsellors and sponsorship from partner schools. However, as a social enterprise we aim to keep the program as affordable as possible for all parties, and so our fees are considerably less than others in the industry.
