LIFE ON CAMP
OUR CAMP STAFF ARE AT THE FOREFRONT OF WHAT WE DO
As well as being tasked with creating safe, fun and engaging experiences for our children, working on Camp is about working as a team. At times you have to problem solve and celebrate successes together.
Whether it be planning and delivering the next large scale LEGO® themed Friday Challenge or preparing for an OFSTED inspection, team work is key.
The memories we create for our children leave lasting impressions. Some of our children even decide to join us when they become adults to create memories for the next generation.
DON’T JUST TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT…
Some of our staff have taken the time to share their experience of working for SuperCamps
“I’ve been working for SuperCamps since I was at University. It’s a great way to build skills for a future career in the childcare sector and has given me a range of ideas to use in my classroom,including art and sport activities that I didn’t learn during my teaching degree!
In addition to learning new skills, there is excellent scope for career progression. I started as an Activity Instructor and since that time have experienced many roles including Early Years Practitioner, Camp Manager, Regional Manager… right up to now as Senior Regional Manager.
If you’re passionate, hardworking and enjoy working with children, I would encourage you to apply to work at SuperCamps today!’
David, Senior Regional Manager
KIRSTY – OPERATIONS MANAGER
Kirsty was our first ever Legacy Award Winner; an Award presented to staff who have delivered continuous excellence whilst working for SuperCamps for a minimum of 5 consecutive years. Kirsty started working for SuperCamps as an Activity Instructor in 2008 and has worked in a number of roles since then, with her current role being Operations Manager.
How did it feel to be the first ever Legacy Award Winner?
It was a real honour; it was great to see that the company acknowledged my long service for work both on Camp and at Head Office.
You were a seasonal member of staff for a number of years, what did you do during the term time when not on Camp?
I was previously a Nursery ICT Teacher. My role on Camp really assisted in my career development, especially when I was an Early Years Practitioner and Camp Manager, as it allowed me to work with different children, situations and staff, and use those situations to guide my decision making and approach within my term time role.
What are the biggest differences with your Head Office and Seasonal Roles?
Working in Head Office, allows you to see all the cogs that go into making SuperCamps work behind the scenes, from working with Host Venues, through to planning logistics and creating the session ideas for future seasons.
In my role as Operations Manager, I get to travel around the country looking at our current and potential venues.
Do you have favourite memory from SuperCamps?
I have two. One is from my time as Camp Manager whilst doing a set up day. I realised one of the staff members that I was training was a former child from a previous Camp that I’d instructed and taught at!
The other was from Summer 2018 when we achieved an OUTSTANDING rating from OFSTED at one of our locations on the last day of season. The team really did the company proud.
THE SUPER AWARDS
The SUPER Awards are our prestigious reward and recognition scheme that gives staff the opportunity to nominate their peers based on the five SUPER Values…
Safety, Uniqueness, Presentation, Engagement and Responsibility…
At the end of each season, we announce our nominees via our internal Facebook Group with Winners receiving prizes to acknowledge their great work, such as Love2Shop vouchers, Cinema Tickets and Disneyland Paris Tickets.
Our shortlisted Summer Nominees will also be invited to a very special red carpet event to announce the Winner. Taking on a wild theme, this year’s event took place at Chessington World of Adventures.
