Frequently asked questions

Will I definitely get a place at camp?

Yes. This year we're offering you a guaranteed place or your money back. When you go with the Leaders, you go to summer camp.

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

When do I make my first payment?

Once you’ve registered and given us a little more information, it’s time to pay your deposit. The deposit secures your interview and moves your application on to the next stage.

When do I have to pay everything by?

You can pay as early or late as you like, as long as it’s within 60 days of your official acceptance (which is after your interview with the team).

You can pay in small instalments or one lump sum.

Is the deposit refundable?

If for any reason you are not accepted on to the program then your deposit will be immediately refunded.

If you’re successful at your interview, we will be taking you all the way to camp. If you choose to cancel your application then we won’t be able to refund the deposit.

When should I apply?

The earlier you apply, the better. From early bird perks to getting your camp sooner. Summer might seem far away but it’ll be here before you know it.

What do my fees pay for?

Your fees don’t just cover the above but also include what happens behind the scenes. We’ll match you with the best summer camp for you, give you unconditional love and support including J1 VISA guidance prior to departure and 24-7 support once you arrive in the USA and for the duration of your summer.
