What you pay

All Camp America Returners...

  • negotiate their own pocket money with their Camp Director
  • receive our medical insurance
  • must re-complete a Police Check (DBS or equivalent) - NEW for 2015

Payments are split into two groups:

  • Camp America fees (payments that come to use for medical insurance etc)
  • Other fees (which we immediately pay out to external companies, for things such as police visa etc)

Information for Campower Returners

There are only 100 Campower returner spaces available due to a recent change in visa regulations. When the 100 places have been filled all Campower returners will be subject to First Timer fees and pocket money. This regulation has no impact on the Counsellor programme and only affects Campower.
