Applications for summer 2019 are OPEN!

Summer Camps are an American tradition, where children aged 6 to 16 spend a few weeks away, learning new skills and making new friends. With over 10,000 camps that employ 300,000 staff (59% of them international!) your all-American dream is right here at your fingertips.

There are plenty of employment opportunities at Summer Camps in the US.

It's hard work but incredibly rewarding!
