Job Type: Full Time - Temporary Contract


If you’re looking for an incredibly rewarding way to spend the school holidays, gaining additional leadership experience in an out of school setting, which will pay you to keep active and have fun, we’re sure we have the role for you!

Kings Camps run sports and activity day camps for children throughout the school holidays that deliver our mission – getting children active, having fun and learning together.

We know market-leading programmes don’t deliver themselves - it’s our people who create amazing holiday experiences for children - and we’re now hiring energetic and passionate Managers to deliver our mission in 2024 and beyond.

Why work for Kings Camps?

  • Earn up to £605 per week
  • Free enhanced DBS check and Kings Camps uniform
  • Opportunity to gain a funded paediatric first aid qualification
  • Because we’re Ofsted registered, you’ll have opportunity to see how we implement high standards in children’s care in an out of school setting
  • Opportunity to interact and build relationships with parents/guardians
  • Career development and the potential of regular employment with Kings (we always promote from within!)
  • Deliver market-leading activity programmes with a great range of equipment and activities
  • Excellent locations – some of the best universities and schools in the UK!
  • Market-leading online and on-site training
  • Opportunity to help make a difference in the lives of children from all backgrounds.

About the Role

Reporting to the Regional Manager and leading a like-minded team of coaching staff, you’ll be responsible for the delivery of a high-quality, school-holiday, Kings Camps experience, ensuring children aged 5 to 17 are active, having fun and learning together.

Before the season begins, Camp Managers undertake administration and preparation responsibilities, communication with your team, planning timetables and ensuring your venue is ready.

During season, Camp Managers are onsite from 8am to 5:30pm as the first-point of contact for staff, children, parents, venue and our central office team. Camp Managers are the designated safeguarding lead at a venue, dealing with concerns in a timely manner, completing paperwork and risk assessments, responding to feedback, recording incidents and managing OFSTED requirements.

Child safety is our number one priority, and the welfare of children is paramount. Supervision responsibilities include lunch, morning and afternoon breaks, implementing our behaviour management policy, overseeing the use of equipment and upholding health and safety standards and procedures.

Because we’re Ofsted registered, you’ll also be given the opportunity to see how we implement high standards in children’s care and wellbeing as well as the opportunity to gain first aid qualifications, interact and build relationships with parents/guardians and access to our market-leading training.

Person Specification (Ideal, but with some flexibility)

  • Available between 8am - 5:30pm, Monday to Friday, during the school holidays
  • 12 months’ experience working with children and young people
  • Experience in a management or leadership position
  • Childcare, sports or teaching related degree (or related qualification)
  • Knowledge and experience of Child Protection, Safeguarding and Health and Safety
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills with the ability to motivate
  • Safeguarding experience and understanding
  • Organised and able to follow policy and procedure
  • Vibrant, resilient, team player
  • Flexible and adaptable

Our Safeguarding Promise

Kings Active Foundation is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. Safer recruitment is central to the way we work and all staff and volunteers are expected to share our commitment to safeguarding, always creating an environment where young people feel safe and can thrive.

About us

Kings Camps are a market leading not-for-profit organisation offering sports and activity day camps at over 50 UK locations, getting children and young people active, having fun and learning together.

Founded in 1991, we were inspired by US-style summer camps. We decided that youngsters in the UK would love to experience school holiday camps too, and established a model which meant we could reach even more children through not-for-profit work in the UK and overseas.

Our coaches (we call them Red Tops) deliver high quality sports camps with an energy, passion and commitment to child development that we call the Kings Factor®.
