Get your Early-Bird-Discount
If you apply early you can save money! 50 € discount will be given to all participants whose National Team Skype interview takes place before or on 31.12.
*For participants who have their National Team Skype Interview after the 31.12., the program fee will be 500 €.
We are fair and transparent: We do NOT require a down payment for a screening interview like other providers! You pay only after we have accepted you in the program - a first installment of 200 euros. The total balance is due only after placement in a camp!
Job Guarantee or get your money back
We’re that confident we can find you a place at summer camp that if for any reason we can’t, we’ll refund your program fees in full*.
*Program fees can be found outlined above and in our program agreement. The refund does not cover any 3rd party costs you may incur such as flights, background checks or visa fees. You are only eligible for the refund if you stay on the program until July 1st and do not withdraw your application.
Tip: Apply early!
Every year we get more registrations as places are available. For this reason, we advise you to apply early. The sooner you sign up, the better your chances of a placement!
*Registrations are possible depending upon availability until 15.04.2019. For participants who have their National Team Skype Interview after 15.03.2019, we will charge an additional processing fee of 50 €.
Best value for money
More than 93% of our former participants would recommend us. No wonder: in addition to our outstanding quality, we offer a first-class experience and great value for money.
While other providers charge excessive prices for included flights, our fees are around 500 euros lower. In addition, you get with us up to $800 more pocket money than with other organizations (thats the equivalent of about 700 Euros more)!
That's a price difference of about 1.200 Euros! A flight to the US usually costs much less on average.
