Gap Year in USA & Canada

North America is a geographically and demographically diverse area. This continent is the planet's 3rd largest, includes 23 countries and dozens of small islands (most of these are in the Caribbean where you might fancy doing a PADI course or marine conservation placement).

Canada and The USA are world class venues for ski and snowboard instructor training camps. British tour operators and the big resorts (apply directly) take on British staff but keep an eye on the visa requirements as the rules keep changing! Summer Camp Jobs in The USA are an ever popular option, check out the jobs section for the latest Camp Vacancies.
