As a summer 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 summer camp counselor in Thailand is not only highly rewarding, but it’s also a lot of fun. In Thailand, GeoVisions’ 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 setting 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 playing soccer during activity time.  It’s the Thai kids’ favorite sport.

Counselors will have an online prep course.  



As a "thank you gift" from the camps, expect approximately US$100-$150 in local currency.


Four weeks.


Not included. You will enter on the "O" visa for volunteers. GeoVisions will help you with this process. The current cost for this visa is $80 US. The "O" visa is good for 90-days.
