Summer Camps USA

from £299
Countries: United States of America
Working at a US camp is a summer job like no other! You’ll get to live in the great outdoors, work with kids, and make new friends. Plus you’ll have 30 days of optional travel afterwards.

Summer Camps USA

With Camp Exchange USA, you will spend up to ten weeks at camp this summer — living and working with kids in the great outdoors - and helping them have the summer of their lives!

We're looking for people who love working with kids of all ages who can fill one (or more) of the following roles:
▪ Activity Specialist - working direct with the kids, teaching them new activities and skills
▪ Cabin Counselor - living and guiding young campers throughout the experience

No matter which role you are assigned you'll be part of a summer experience that will allow you to:

▪ Develop essential leadership and teaching skills and independence
▪ Establish lifelong friendships
▪ Learn about other cultures
▪ Spend time in the great outdoors!

At the end of the season, adventure still awaits. For up to 30 days following your time at camp, you can travel the U.S., visiting quintessential American locations, meeting diverse people, exploring an eclectic mix of traditional American cuisine, and more!


As a camp counselor, you will be placed in one of two roles:
Cabin Counselor—whether you are helping campers write an email home to their parents or checking in to see how bunkmates are getting along, you will be the children’s activity master, supervisor, cheerleader, and source of guidance throughout the program.
Activity Specialist—you will guide campers through a specific activity each day. Depending on the camp, activities range from ceramics to music to waterskiing, dance or skateboarding!
You can see a general list of activities below!


Your camp will be a home away from home where you eat, sleep, work and relax alongside your campers.
Each day will be different but will always be rewarding - full of new experiences and challenges.
Activities will be varied so you need to be willing to give anything a go!


The majority of placements are in traditional camps. These can be co-ed or serve only female or male campers. For many families, it’s a long-held tradition for children to attend the same summer camp their siblings, parents, or even grandparents did when they were young!
Specialised camps
Some camps are associated with a specific organisation or religion, such as the Girl Scouts or the Jewish faith.

Others are focused on serving campers with a variety of special needs like physical or mental disabilities
