Been placed at a camp in NY state. Summer Camp team were very helpful, phoned regularly to check up on me. Looking... forward to this new experience. Would have liked more information on additional costs (e.g. visa) before signing up, however I'm sure it'll all be worth it. The interview process (with the camps) was surprisingly quite fun. I also wish the team would have let me know that most camps require people with more experience with children but maybe that should have been more common sense on my part. Besides those two little things, the team were supportive and enthusiastic :-)read more

USA summer camp made the difficult and complicated process of applying for the J1 visa super straightforward. Their... customer service is the best I've experienced in any business, they are just so enthusiastic, energetic and helpful!As well as this I had one of my best summers ever over in the US thanks to them. I will be returning and would strongly recommend USA summer camp!read more

Had the best summer of my life - after two days back home I was ready to go back to camp!! Staff are all very amazing... and friendly. The only reason its 4 stars is due to the wage not being as high as other agencies. Also i would recommend booking your own flights!! (You’ll save approx. £500 with both paying less and more salary)read more

I had an amazing experience with USA Summer Camp! I went to my camp for the first time in the summer of 2016, and... returned for the summers of 2017 and 2019. Every step of the process was clear and easy due to the service of the team, and responses were always speedy and friendly when any queries came up. They really look after their applicants and know how to put them at ease - all of the somewhat daunting parts become a joy with such constant support! It was great knowing that if anything came up during my time at camp that they were only a phone call away. Could not recommend them more for anyone who is interested in being a camp counsellor for a summer (or a few). Thank you so much for all of your help, USASC!read more

I've been looking forward to working with USA Summer Camp for a while now, based on the service they provided to me... when i initially applied to go on to a summer camp programme in summer 2018. They ensured i was well equipped and excited for the opportunity. Being part of the national support team allows me to brag about not just the best, but most important summer of my life. Now i get to enable others to help empower and engage with campers from USA. As a bonus, the staff are super friendly too.read more

They answered any questions I had and walked me through the process every step of the way. I couldn't recommend them enough. I had an amazing experience that I will never forget! Thanks again.read more
