Camp USA – What does it means and what does this program offer?
Each summer, millions of American children pack their bags and head to summer camps; it’s a century old tradition, as popular as baseball and Coke! There are hundreds of these camps in USA, most of them in beautiful country areas, where children meet to play sports and other outdoor activities.

  • People who supervise children from camp are called advisers.

  • The young people who work behind the scene and ensure a good function of camps are called support staff.
This program is an ideal way to make new friends and to have the best summer of your life!!
Camp USA places you in the camp that best suits your personality, abilities and interests, where you will work between 8-12 weeks. At the end of your contract with the camp, you are free to travel USA for 30 days before coming back to your home country.
