Job Details

Work at a Summer Camp in the USA - 2024

Looking to earn up to USD $2,000 salary, get a serious bootcamp for your CV and make a difference to the lives of young people?

If you’re aged 18-30, then BUNAC’s Summer Camp USA program gives you the opportunity to live the all-American dream for the summer. We’ll match you with a job at camp and provide the sponsorship, visa assistance and step-by-step support you need to move Stateside for the summer.

The job bit

Between June and August each year, camp is an institution for American children and teenagers. And each year, Camp Directors look to hire likeminded 18-30 year olds from all over the world to work as Camp Counsellors and Activity Specialists. Think lakeside lodges and campfire nights, helping to shape the lives of young people while also shaping your own summer – getting valuable work experience, making lifelong friendships and living in phenomenal locations.

From coaching soccer to teaching guitar or helping with arts and crafts, camp allows you to develop your leadership skills and turn a passion into a profession. It’s hard work, but it’s one of the most rewarding things you can do with your summer. Plus, your visa allows you to travel around the States for 30 days afterwards which is the ultimate work/play balancer.

Once you’re booked onto our Summer Camp USA program, you’ll get access to the camps hiring for the summer. You’ll interview via video before you go, with our team on hand to help with interview tips and pep talks.

The money bit

Not only is working at camp great for your CV and your social life, but booking with BUNAC you’ll earn USD $2,000 camp salary – more than any other camp abroad operator. Accommodation and food are also included, so most people actually save money while they’re away – using their salary for their roadtrip after camp.

The visa bit

If you’re a UK passport holder, you must be 18-30 to apply for the J-1 visa that allows you to join our Summer Camp USA program. This visa allows you to work for the duration of camp (usually end of June until the end of August), plus travel around America for 30 days afterwards. BUNAC and our US partner CIEE provide the sponsorship, visa and placement support needed to get you through the whole process from start to finish.


BUNAC are experts in work abroad programs and has extensive experience in offering work and travel experiences around the World to students and young people globally since 1962.

Internships Abroad -  A professional internship abroad will not only be great professional work experience but will elevate your resume to the top of the pile. The resilience, independence and initiative you’ll gain through an international internship placement will be invaluable to your future career and employability.

Summer in the States - If you are looking for the best All-American summer of your life, then Summer Camp in America or Summer Work Travel in the USA would be perfect for you and offers you the chance to learn all important resume-enhancing transferable skills, while having the most unforgettable summer!

Working Holidays - BUNAC also offers Working Holiday programs in some of the World's most exciting destinations, including Australia, Canada and New Zealand and Japan. You’ll gain heaps of soft skills, life experience and almost definitely have the adventure of a lifetime!
