At Country House Camp we take pride in the the quality of our staff. All staff are personally interviewed, have their references checked and undergo full background checks.
We always keep a ratio of at least one member of staff per 6 children, or less – and most often, there are many more. All go through a thorough training & First Aid program, and many times come back to work year on year.
As a mother, Sacha is onsite as much as possible and very much involved in all areas of the activities and goings on – particularly, to help with any moments where a loving ear is needed, and mummy feels a bit far away.
We understand what it takes to be a Camp Leader
We know how to create a rich, rewarding summer experience. When hiring staff we look for great role models that show an enthusiasm for working with children in a warm, caring environment. We look for individuals with that special ‘camp personality’. Though we have high expectations for our staff we also understand how demanding their job is for what we make sure our staff have well deserved breaks to recharge batteries.
Your child’s wellbeing is of the utmost importance to us
We value the work that our staff does every summer immensely and we want to make sure that we give our staff the tools and strategies to be successful at their job. We run a one week intensive training before campers arrive which includes classes that address motivation, safety, ages and stages of child behaviour, homesickness as well as a variety of teaching techniques and hours of role-playing and practice.
When swimming the children are supervised by a qualified lifeguard at all times.
All staff receive first aid / CPR training.
We keep a ratio of 1-6 campers or under.
Our English teachers are TEFL / TESOL certified with proven experience in English teaching.

Hey, my name is Ben! This will be my third year at CHC, so I might be a familiar face to some campers. I have just finished my Sports Science degree at St Mary’s University, Twickenham.

I love most sports, but especially enjoy rugby, swimming, and cycling. I’m hoping I can get everyone at camp excited to play fun games and sports.
