The summer of a lifetime
Two months working as a camp counselor in the sunny USA, plus a month of travel to explore wherever the wind takes you.

Meet your fellow counselors from Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the UK and more... handy if you ever need a place to crash while travelling!
Craic on tap
We mean banter, of course. It's an experience fuelled by silliness, by acting like a big kid yourself and by having the time of your life. And actually getting paid for it!
A hassle-free, funded summer
We'll cover your insurance and your Sevis fee. Plus we'll give you a parting gift of up to $2,000 to fund that epic road trip.

My past 2 summers in USA with Camp USA have been the best summers of my life and have changed my life, and would highly recommend the experience to anyone. - Aidan Fahey
I felt like I was supported and I felt less stressed knowing everything was being sorted out for me. They were kind and patient with whatever I needed help with in relation to my documents, booking flights, etc. - Hannah Maiden
