The UK-TEFL Job at Finish Summer Camps :

Teachers' responsibilities are to give a test to all students/kids and to divide them into groups according to the test results (all teachers do this together) to give 60/50 academic hours of lessons in a period of two weeks. It's 10 teaching days of 6/5 academic hours in each two-week camp. Every teacher makes his own lesson plan.

It's mostly conversational English with dialogs, everyday vocabulary, social English, grammar in practice
It's good to give a lesson on articles and prepositions (links nouns with phrases), phrasal verbs, idiomatic expressions, slang and colloquialisms.

The goal is that students learn new things and make some progress in English in these two weeks.

Every evening group leaders arrange some activities (games or sports) with the kids, and we would be happy if you participate although this is not obligatory. Teachers are always very welcome to join in the activities.
 
On weekends teachers are very welcome to come on the bus with the group to the excursions organised for students if there's a free place on the bus. If the group goes to a museum or aqua park, everyone pays for his own entrance ticket.
