AmeriCamp

From day one I felt part of a family with AmeriCamp. I was assigned a member of staff to interview me and she remained helping me throughout the process right until orientation. All the staff are so friendly, they’re working around the clock to make sure every applicant has what they need. Furthermore their application process is super quick and easy, plus it’s all online! They also make sure the whole process is affordable to everyone and keep the costs as low as possible which is awesome, as it mean you have more money to spend in the states! I can’t wait to return to my camp next year through AmeriCamp, and hope to do so for many years.

Superb company

Had the best summer in America.
Got placed at a special needs camp in Maryland.
Americamp made the process so easy and explained each step and if you had any questions there was always someone to help.
This company offered the lowest fees so you had a bit extra to spend while over there

Life Changing

Americamp was honestly the best thing I have ever done. I started off quite shy and anxious about everything, but at soon as you get stuck into camp life that all changes. You are dancing around on the tables, signing at the top of your lungs. It's just a really amazing time.

I strongly recommend going with Americamp, I tried to contact various other companies before and none of them responded in the way Americamp did. The staff are so dedicated to it all, they really want to help you. You don't earn millions, but you earn more than any other organisations, and this really does help the bank so much.

If you want to change your life and make memories that will last a lifetime, sign up to Americamp.

Americamp were amazing!

I have just completed my second summer working in a Girl Scout camp in the USA amd both summers the team at Americamp have been incredible. I phoned them so much with so many questions, especially my first summer and it never felt like it was any hassle. I felt like they knew me and they were so friendly. When i went to a camp fair I didn't find a camp that suited me and I spoke to someone on the way out and mentioned that I wanted to work for a Girl scout camp, soon after I got an offer. Trust them, they do their job so well. I worked at a camp with alot of other international staff that had come through different agencies and I most definitely earned the most. Americamp are fantastic!

Great company!

Had the best summer of my life working at a camp in West Virginia!

Though it took me a while to get placed, the 100% placement rate from previous years, and the 24/7 support given made it an easy, panic free process! I loved the company so much I applied as a campus manager for the company and have been given the job, and I'm now looking forward to working as part of the Americamp team to help give other people the same experience I received.

@AmeriCamp is amazing

AmeriCamp is the best experience of my life, I would recommend it to anyone!

I spend summer 2016 working in an American summer camp in upstate NY. I got #plACed at a special needs camp. The experience was a lot harder then I expected but it was the most rewarding thing I've ever done.

I got #plACed as a general counsellor, which meant looking after my bunk of children and making sure they got to each activity and meal on time. The activities ranged from arts & crafts to cooking and from swimming in the pool to horse riding.

Made the best of friends with my other counsellors in the same bunk as me.

Wouldn't have changed this experience for anything.

AmeriCamp where super helpful with answering all my questions. They have the nicest and most friendly team, so friendly you feel you are entering one big family. Throughout the process they were the best in the business and as a bonus they pay the most salary in the entire industry. It's a no brainier to apply though AmeriCamp.

If you are in any doubt in applying then I couldn't recommend the experience enough.

If you have any questions about the program then feel free to tweet me and I'll be happy to help - @Louis_Joe_Bird

Applications are now open and you can apply through the website - www.americamp.co.uk

Much love and #FreeBiscuits 😘

Amazing!

From start to finish, Americamp were amazing- so much so im returning for a second year to camp through them. They provided help literally 24/7 and the footprints account is so simple to understand. All very well organised. You dont work at a summer camp for the money, but they made it much more affordable
