Instead of just visiting the U.S. as a tourist, why not fully immerse yourself in American life through an American tradition, the camp experience? The Camp Counselor program gives you the opportunity to spend up to 4 months working and traveling in the U.S. during your summer break.
As a J-1 Camp Counselor participant, you will have the opportunity to share your language, culture, and customs with the Americans you meet in your camps, local communities, and travel destinations over the course of your summer break. As you meet new people, make new friends, and experience new personal and professional challenges, you will learn about the United States, its values, and its people.
You'll earn money to cover your expenses, receive housing, meet new friends, and improve your English skills. Most camps run for an eight-week session, and after your job is complete, you can spend the last months of the program traveling throughout the U.S.
