Camp America: Work on a special needs camp in the USA

Want to use your summer to make a difference to the lives of others and give yourself a rewarding experience? A placement at a special needs camp in the USA will do just that!

Getting to spend your summer helping campers with additional needs play, laugh and have fun, makes this role on of the most rewarding positions we offer.

The role of Special Needs Counsellors is to help campers enjoy summer camp in a safe and fun environment. These camps cater for campers from the age of 8-80, so you may be looking after adults too! Your time will be dedicated to a small group of campers, often between two and six, and in some cases you may provide one-on-one care for a camper. This means you'll be part of a big team of Counsellors on camp, so team work is a must!

Your role will be very similar to the General Counsellor position, so you'll have the chance to get involved in the range of activities on camp. You may also be expected to help with personal care, eating and ensuring campers visit the nurse for their daily medication.

No previous experience is required for this role. Camp Directors are looking for applicants who are caring, hard-working and willing to learn. Training will be provided when you arrive on camp and you'll be offered continuous support throughout. If you have experience in this field then you'll no doubt be in demand - so make sure you put it on your application!

Anyone who has previously worked at a Special Needs Camp will talk about the amazing feeling you get from devoting your time to helping others - which is what makes this work so rewarding!

So, what are you waiting for? Be that difference this summer and apply today!

Our programme includes return flights to the USA, Group International Accident & Sickness coverage, nine weeks food and accommodation, pocket money ($800 – $1,350), support from beginning to end plus much more.


Camp America is a cultural exchange programme that gives you the chance to spend your summer living and working on a summer camp in the USA. We'll support you from start to finish to make sure you have the experience of a lifetime!

It's your chance to do something totally different with your summer and spend it in the USA with people from all over the world in a truly unique setting. There's nowhere quite like camp!

We've been sending people to work on summer camps in America since 1969, so we're a company you can trust. Our staff have done the programme themselves, so we really understand what's involved in getting someone from their home country to a suitable summer camp placement in the USA. We also know how daunting it can be to sort out an experience like this, so over the years we've worked really hard to make the process as easy as possible for you. This means that you can sit back and relax in the knowledge that as far as working on a summer camp is concerned - we've got you covered!
