Returning to your camp for another summer means lower application costs and higher wages!

Heading back to your summer camp can only mean that you are setting yourself up for another incredible J1 in a place that you now call your home away from home. Why would you think of going anywhere else?


Applying as a returner with Camp Leaders means a very quick and simple application, fewer fees to pay and the opportunity to negotiate your wages with your camp director. Your camp will pay the $35 SEVIS fee directly to Camp Leaders. They will pay £0 placement/administration fee to Camp Leaders which means you should be paid the same as any American staff member.


As a camp returner, you will still receive 90 days medical insurance, 24/7 support whilst you’re working and travelling in America and also all the J1 Visa Sponsorship and Assistance you received as a first-time camp staff member
