Registrations for this year are closed, but we are now taking registrations for 2020. Camp America runs from June-August/September. Please contact us if you would like to register for 2020.
If your dream job consists of living in the USA, working with children, and communicating with people from all over the world, you have the best opportunity to do that with our Camp America program.
We work with over 200 different camps across the USA and they are all approved by the American Camp Association, which is like the Ofsted of the camping world. These camps are all very similar in many ways but will also have a number of their own traditions that make them special and unique. Camp sessions vary from one to eight weeks in length and each session will cater for between 100-600 campers! Yup, that’s a lot of kids!
