Established in 1969 nobody knows camp quite like Camp America! Our fully inclusive package has everything you could possibly need to ensure you have the best summer ever working on a camp in the USA
The great thing about working on a summer camp is that whilst you’re having an amazing summer doing something fun and exciting, you’ll also be benefiting your future at the same time! Camp America is recognised by employers and academic institutions across the world, so it will be a great addition to your CV and make you a stand out applicant.
You get to spend the summer living and working in the USA, so by the end of it you’ll feel like a local! You can make the most of your days off at camp and check out the local area and nearby towns and cities. Then once camp is finished, you can stay in America for a further 30 days to travel!
Spending 9 weeks in the USA is a great opportunity to improve your English language skills as you will be speaking English your whole time on camp. Don’t be worried by this, you don’t have to be fluent before arriving but a good level of spoken English is required.
The bonds formed between the staff on camp means you become like family! You’ll rely on each other, you’ll work hard together, you’ll laugh together, you’ll learn together and ultimately you’ll share the summer together.
Camp enables you to become a role model, a leader and a team player - perhaps without you even noticing! You couldn’t gain all of these skills in a normal summer job, so by taking part in the programme you’re not only going to have an amazing time, you’re also helping your future too!
Whether you’d rather look after the camp working in the kitchen, office, or maintenance, or looking after the kids as a general or activities specialist, there’s something for everyone!
Spend a minimum of 9 weeks living and working on a summer camp in the USA!

Finnish Interviewer, Tampere
"As cliché as it sounds, the Parent Trap was on TV one day and I began to wonder if working on a summer camp in the USA was possible. I had never heard about Camp America, since it’s not a big thing in Finland yet. After doing some googling, I found out that it actually was possible to work on a camp! This was something I had been dreaming of: getting to work in an international environment and travelling at the same time. It felt natural for me to apply, because I had attended on many camps in Finland, so this was all perfect for me
My experience with Camp America has been so incredible and right now I’m interviewing people in Finland and helping them to experience summer of a lifetime! It’s something you can’t understand properly before experiencing it yourself. Working on a camp gives you so much; you meet people from all over the world, get friends that last for a lifetime, gain valuable international working experience, work on your English skills and much, much more!"
