I cannot recommend these enough! They hold your hand through every step of the process and their customer service is the best I have seen! I have a lot of friends struggling with Visas due to their sponsor however, USA summer jobs are the only company that is getting their students over to the U.S. Jenny was my agent as was extremely helpful and enthusiastic. She had weekly calls with me to check how my application process was going and truly made the daunting process easy! A truly great company with great people! 5/5!

USA Summer Camp is the best organisation ever to help you find a place at camp. From the very beginning when I first signed up for camp they were all very friendly, informative and helpful. I was a bit daunted by the application because it involves a lot of detail but they made the process so much easier for me by guiding me through everything step by step. Niall in particular was a great help and his enthusiasm for camp influenced me so much to want to go myself and put all my fears about stepping out of my comfort zone to rest. I was placed at a great camp very quickly due to USA Summer Camp’s help. I highly recommend them.

Applied mid-late 2021 and the interview process began in the November, almost immediately my application had been chosen for interview. CCUSA really helped with interview preparation and connecting us with people who had experienced the process before. A job offer came quickly and I am so happy with the camp and team I have been matched with. Very excited for the summer and so thankful for the CCUSA team for their consistent follow ups and providing a smooth transition from application to employment.

USA Summer Camp have a marvellous team of staff (many of whom are ex-camp councelors and will be able to give first hand experience and tips) who swiftly respond and continue to contact you, so as to maintain a progressive schedule and remove any concerns and stress the process may create. Special shout out to Glen who is a joy to communicate with on the phone. I reserve a five star review because I understand they it can be rather difficult to receive a refund from the company. Mostly, the option provided is to reapply for a future year, which isn't always accessable for some.

Applied with specific instructions that I would not be comfortable working with a religious camp. This specification was ignored. During my application, I was constantly put in touch with "yes-men" that falsely convinced me that I was putting in a worthy investment to their program. I wasn't. The interviews with the camps were probably the most uncomfortable (professional) experiences I've ever had. I still haven't gotten my money back due to the Covid-19 shutdown. I was sold a lie.

Really positive experience for me with USA Summer Camp. I was probably one of the first people to sign up for Summer 2022 (I signed up April 2021) which I think benefitted me getting placed so early! But they have been amazing for me, always reply fast to emails and happily answer the phone to my silly questions and worries. Everything was made so simple for me to follow, and I like how helpful the guides are on difficult processes such as the VISA. Nothing has been an issue for me so far and I’m due to fly out in June to an amazing camp! One recommendation I would make though is to create a facebook community or group chat so we can talk to other applicants, as it’s been a nerve racking process building up so I’d like to find some other people to chat to. But other than that, only positive things to say, always given updates about deadlines in good time. Thanks USA Summer Camp (shoutout to Claire who interviewed me and helped answer most of my questions!) - Harriet 😁

USA Summer Camp are an excellent agency to apply for Summer work in the states. They respond swiftly and are efficient at contacting their counselors to update them on their progress, next steps etc. Shout out to Glen who is wonderfully chipper on call, and brings a personal quality to the business process. My review is that of four stars as I do understand that refunds can be particularly difficult to achieve as they do not reimburse for many reasons. They instead allow you to reapply at any future year to continue with your application. This is not ideal for some.

Agree with so many other's IMO very unprofessional company. My son paid the £49 fee by mistake ( He was awaiting a call from another American camp ) I telephoned straight away to cancel and refund payment and explain his application was not completed, so why call and take deposits !! After having strong words with Kierian he made it quite clear he would NOT REFUND the money. I made it quite clear application was not completed so people should not be ringing for deposits/interviews . He replied 29% had been completed ... 29% very unprofessional imo to push for interview then ask for £49 deposit to be paid. Please people read all poor reviews . speaks volumes ! The attitude is so unprofessional I would sooner my son loose the £49 than use this company.... I have spoken with my bank to do a chargeback

Would 100% say avoid!! Use a different place. They will not refund you money even in the most extreme circumstance. For me my mum passed away and I expressed this is something I can no longer do and will still not be given a refund. They claim it is for the 10 minute phone call you get however the £49 deposit I paid should have covered that and I should get my first instalment back. I signed no contracts with this company and yet it is still refused. The most unprofessional company that has no values and is more than happy to take money for doing nothing for students who are struggling. Also throughout contacting them response have been slow and people have been rude

Simeon Raines

31st October 2020

If you are thinking of applying, do not unless you are certain that a global pandemic won't make you unable to attend, as they will steal any money you have already paid. I have paid £300 and found out that my A level exams have been changed, meaning I can no longer go on camp, this was a factor out of my control. The team passed me through to one of the directors/ managers who ridiculously said "when you applied you didn't tell us you were waiting on your exam dates", umm? May be because there was no global pandemic going on then. So in the end they have stolen my savings and that amount of money to a 17 year old lad which I would otherwise have spent on a missionary in Africa. I can now no longer do this because the directors are negligent and fail to see how a global pandemic Is a good enough reason to give a refund. DO NOT USE THIS BUSINESS In response to the owners response: I cannot defer as the dates do not work with my plans next year and looking at other reviews , you have stolen from many others as well. Completely unacceptable and I will not stop ringing and emailing further up the chain of command until I am rightfully refunded. I will add that the call centre staff in birmingham were brilliant and did an excellent job. The issue I have is with the unethical and spiteful directors who do not care about customer service. To prove this, I emailed 2 days ago which was a response to their email which I responded to in about 5 minutes, yet a day later I post this review which is answered politely the next day. Because they only care about getting more money and more young people to steal from rather than providing a fair service.

To reiterate the points made by Nina absolutely horrible company to deal with. Despite as per my previous review my sons granddad passed away they still showed no goodwill even though jack has to look after his grand mother next year. And really with covid it's not going to happen there is no way he would visit america . These people have taken our money and it will be see you in SCC. Just cant describe how awful they are to deal with.

Avoid Avoid Avoid!!!!!! If you are thinking about doing a summer at a US summer camp AVOID this company like the plague! This “company” have left me £500 out of pocket as during a GLOBAL PANDEMIC refused to refund me in any capacity. The U.K. management team (particularly Kier Bates) have manipulated terms and conditions, been evasive and refused to explain to me where my money has been spent and why they cannot refund me. All they have done is shove a deferral down my throat practically forcing me to either accept that or lose ALL my money. Due to personal circumstances I CANNOT defer which I explained very politely to the U.K. team on several occasions. Despite this they were dismissive and offered absolutely NO FLEXIBILITY. Absolutely NO ethics and morals during this time - PARTICULARLY THE U.K. TEAM. Other companies for example Camp America offered their staff the option of a FULL refund or deferral. DONT GO WITH USA SUMMER CAMP - they will screw you over. (Also before COVID they offered very little communication around additional costs which made it hard to accurately budget).
