About Summer Camps

Summer Camp in America

Introducing the perfect summer jobs for students, graduates, gap-year people and you ‘somewhere inbetweeners’ the Camp Leaders program is your opportunity to get paid work in a traditional USA summer camp.

Beginning over 125 year ago, the US is now home to over 10.000 summer camps; each and every one unique. With over 10 million children going to summer camp each year, the need for staff to run the camps is huge, and that’s where YOU come in!

Camp Directors (the people who own/run the camps) like to hire international staff to bring culture and diversity to their camp, whilst providing a broad skill-set for their campers.

Your Summer Job at Camp

Camp not only provides an exciting action packed environment, but allows the kids to develop their life skills, gaining independence and meeting new friends from around the world.

Your role as a camp counselor is to foster the development of the children you work with, leading them in the activities you’re passionate about and encouraging them to grow into young adults.

Epic Memories

Summer camp jobs are like nothing you’ve ever experienced before. Working as a camp counselor in America, you’ll create memories to last a lifetime and come back home with some legendary travel stories.


In addition to free accommodation and meals you get paid for your summer camp adventure! Depending on your age and skills you'll earn between $1.400 and $1.500 for 9 weeks.



There are over 500 summer camps we work with all across the United States – from the deep South to the far reaches of the Alaskan wilderness. These camps range in size from those with only a handful of staff, to those housing hundreds of campers and staff. At which camp you will get placed depends on your skills and your availability.

Travel & Days Off

We’re big believers in balancing work and play and with days off and up to a month of travel time after camp, you’ll be able to explore the best of America, whether you fancy New York, Miami, LA, Vegas or a bit of it all, the choice is yours. We’ll even sort you out a discount on group road trips with other travellers and summer camp staff.

A Career Boost

Not only will you make loads of friends, but you’ll have an experience to impress any future employer - from leading teams to working under pressure, you’ll come away from camp with more relevant experiences than you’ll be able to do with. Working abroad always impresses employers.

Friends from Around the World

You’ll be joining staff from countries like Australia, New Zealand, Spain, Germany, Mexico and more. You’ll be thrown into an enormous variety of cultures and come out the other side with friends from around the world, which we guarantee will come in handy for future travels.
