The team from USA Summer Camp will be on campus to talk about opportunities at their camps:

“USA Summer Camp gives you the opportunity to spend your summer living and working in the US,  teaching American campers all the sports, hobbies and skills that you know and love. Not only will you spend every day doing what you love in the American sunshine, but you’ll get paid for it too!

You will also meet people from around the world and spend up to a month travelling America after your contract is done. USA Summer Camp is a cultural exchange provider offering summer work experiences at over 500 summer camps in America. Food and accommodation will be provided whilst you work. We placed 100% of our participants at camp in summer 2017, so we know that we can get you to America for the summer of a lifetime!

Come meet the team to find out how you can spend your summer in America. In our presentation, we’ll cover what it’s like to work at summer camp, what opportunities are available for you and how to prepare for your summer with USA Summer Camp.”
