                    Overview

                    As a language camp counselor in Thailand, by teaching English during day camps, you will give many children an opportunity to learn an important skill that they can use to better their lives.

                    Becoming a language camp counselor in Thailand is not only highly rewarding, but it’s also a lot of fun. In Thailand, The Cultural Exchange Project's language camps provide English language education to disadvantaged youth.  This gives them an opportunity to learn an important skill that they can use to better their lives. These language camps mostly take place in and around schools.  Students are offered a chance to practice their English in a more creative set of activities and learning that make the day a lot more fun.

                    During the camp days, you will participate in many creative activities using art and music with the children.  You will also have time for plenty of exercise by playing soccer during activity time.  It’s the Thai kids’ favorite sport.
