Every one of our expert team members has worked a job at summer camp in America. On top of that, every year we get your honest feedback on our camps to make sure we work with only the best camps America has to offer.
We believe summer camp can change your life... well, it did for all of us. And we will go the extra mile to make your journey as easy, fun and smooth as possible.
Full support for your summer camp experience.

Together we've spent hundreds of summers in America, so you can turn to us with any questions you may have.

If you want to meet the Camp Directors and get hired on the spot you can register for the job fairs, and to give you an idea about post-camp travelling, you can check out our travel tips and the after camp perks.

Camp: URJ Crane Lake Camp
I’m Jess. I spent 3 summers at URJ Crane Lake camp in Massachusetts where I worked as a nature specialist then as a staff engagement coordinator. I worked closely with the staff team ensuring a smooth transition to summer camp life and helping them become the best counselors they could be for the children. It was a really rewarding role. My favourite thing about America is the different landscapes. Some of my favourites are the rolling hills of the Berkshires, the mountains of Yosemite and the red stone of Sedona.
Island Lake Camp
Hey I’m Sarah! I went to camp in 2022 and I was specialist counsellor in the horseback department. Going to camp was by far one of the best decisions I ever made and I met some of my now best friends who live all over the world. My favourite thing about camp is the portion size with desserts!
Our US team are here to support you throughout the summer in America.
