Camp Leaders have been running for 15 years and are one the leading agencies in the pack at the moment, with branches all over the world, from London to Mexico to Australia to the USA. Everyone who works for Camp Leaders has, at some point in their life, worked at a summer camp, and they really have tried and tested every sort of camp imaginable. In their own words, Camp Leaders “may not have been around the longest, but when it comes to genuine camp experience, [they] lead the way.”
Camp Leaders will help with absolutely everything, from your initial application, right through to help with your travel. They have fantastic customer service (even winning an award for it from the British Youth Travel Awards), and are always on hand with lots of information, whether you are new to summer camp or a long time returner. They even have some great advice on where to travel after camp, with a few deals thrown in here and there.
Just like all the other agencies, the Camp Leaders’ application process is pretty simple. Apply online, get interviewed, head to job fair to get placed on the day (or wait for a camp to hire you), complete your application with all your documents, go to a preparation day, get your visa and away you go!
So, what do you get?
- A summer camp job in America
- Return transatlantic flights (if you choose the flight option)
