Frequently Asked Questions
Will I definitely get a place at camp?
Yes. We guarantee you a place at camp, or your money back. When you go with the Leaders, you go to summer camp. We’re so 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*.
Is the deposit refundable?
If for any reason you are not accepted on to the program, your deposit will be immediately refunded. If you’re successful in your interview, you'll be headed to camp. If you choose to cancel your application, we won’t be able to refund the deposit.
What do my fees pay for?
Your fees cover the above, as well as what happens behind the scenes. We’ll match you with an ideal summer camp, and provide unconditional support, including J1 VISA guidance prior to departure, and 24-7 support upon arrival in the USA.
When do I make my first payment?
After you’ve registered and given us some basic details, you'll pay your deposit. This will secure your interview, and move your summer camp application on to the next stage.
When do I have to pay everything by?
You can pay as you like within 60 days of your official acceptance, after your interview with the team. You can choose to pay in small instalments, or one lump sum.
Don't get stuck at home this summer.
