Camp Leaders Prep Days

Everything you need to know about your summer in America, all from home.

Lots of work went into making our new online prep days a personal, informative day of preparing you for America.

Even though, sometimes, it doesn't quite go to plan, like our blooper video shows...

Your virtual Prep Day will cover what to pack, travel arrangements, insurance and documents, life at camp, after camp travel, and more.

How it works

1. You'll get a link from us.
2. Watch the videos.
3. Fill in the questionnaire.

It's that easy. Once you've got the link, you'll be able to complete your Prep Day online.

Coming soon.

We're still working on finalizing the Prep Day.

You'll receive the link directly, and be able to complete it at your own pace.
