How Does It Work?

There’s a lot that needs to happen to get you to camp. We will be with you every step of the way, from helping you through the requirements of your application to 24/7 on the ground support once you’re at camp. Unlike other organisations, we are an official J-1 visa sponsor and we will walk you through all the required documentation. We also offer a Flights Included package to help you pay less upfront and make sure you can enjoy the summer of a lifetime with minimal hassle.

Camp America was a life changing experience for me. I didn’t think I would have the experience and confidence to be a certified lifeguard. but the training I received was thorough and I had a lot of support.

Taking the campers out on the lake, doing things they'd never usually have the opportunity or support to do, was the greatest feeling. Seeing them feel like they can do anything was the best!
