Our team of Pyrene counselors is essential to ensure the success of our Pyrene Summer Camp year after year. They are the heart of our organization and are an integral part of all the activities.
Our counselors are qualified in teaching, sports and environmental studies. Their tasks involve staying with the children and teenagers in our Sustainable Campsite, ensuring that all the campers feel wanted and respected, and fostering the values necessary to enjoy sports and nature with friends on the basis of respect, cooperation and solidarity. The monitors and teachers fill a wide varieties of roles, such as guardians, mechanics, nurses, psychologists, waiters, musicians, drivers, photographers, Sherpas, inventors, clowns, writers, and computer experts…
They collaborate and they adapt to new situations easily. They are creative, motivated and good communicators. Our monitors are multinational, coming from all around the world (England, the U.S., Andorra, Catalonia…). A wide variety of nationalities enhances the experience of the camp. They work 24 hours for a period of 2 or 5 weeks. They have a day off during the week to rest or lose themselves in the woods.
Accommodation in the Sustainable Campsite is included as well as meals, laundry, and materials to carry out the activities and trips. There are several monitors and one coordinator in every camp. The salary depends on your experience, your training, the tasks assigned, and your career with us so far. Students from the following degrees and disciplines are especially welcome to join our team: Sports Sciences, Physical Education, Physical Activities and Outdoor Activities. If you are certified or specialize in Hiking, Mountain Biking and/or Horse Riding also feel welcome to apply.
Every summer we also offer internships for young adults who are just about to finish their training in sports and environmental studies. We also offer a volunteering program for those interested in getting to know our Sustainable Campsite first hand. This program includes accommodation and meals for the participants. We are also seeking people willing to collaborate in setting up the Sustainable Campsite in June. We dismantle the campsite completely after finishing the last camp in the summer.
