Why do I need a Police Check/Working with Children Check/Blue
Caring for children is a very important position, and for this
reason, national regulations require all staff to hold an
appropriate working with children check. Each state of
Australia has a different name for it, from a Blue Card, Police
Clearance to a Working with Children Check.
If you already have this check - great, it makes getting started
that much quicker. Simply provide a copy of your card, check or
clearance during the application process. If you are
successful, you can be working with children in under a week.
If you don't have the check, no problems - you can still apply
for a role with Camp Australia. While your application is being
assessed, we recommend you apply the appropriate check or
clearance. If your application is succesful you can attend
your training while waiting for your clearance. You will be
placed into programs only after we have received a copy of your

Do I need to have First Aid/CPR/Anaphylaxis certification
If you have completed training in First Aid, CPR and Anaphylaxis
Management in the last 12 months you will hold all the
certifications required to work at our programs. If your last
refresher training was more than 12 months ago - you will need to
update your training either before or immediately after starting
work with us, but we make that easy by helping you do that
through our RTO.
Don't have first aid certificates? No problem. Submit your
application and you can access discounted training through the Camp
Australia Training Team.

certificates, click here.
I'm only looking for a few days per week - can I apply?
With hundreds of services across Australia we are always looking
for capable staff with the right attitude. If you are only
available a few days a week, we would still encourage you to apply.
There are times when our regular staff take holidays, are
sick and absent from work or have changes in their personal
availability. Emergency and Relief Staff form an essential part of
the Camp Australia Team.
What if I'm only looking for Holiday work?
In order to ensure we have staff who are trained and experienced
enough to handle working at one of our Holiday Clubs, we do not
employ staff solely to work during holiday periods. All staff who
we have working during holidays also work during the school
Once you're available during the school term, we encourage you
to apply. Remember, as our sessions run Outside School Hours, you
don't need to be available for the whole day to work with us.
