Did you know?

Our AmeriCamp Returners love AmeriCamp so much, they can’t wait to return back to camp with us! 

AmeriCamp Programme Costs

  • Returner Full Amount - £289

    On confirmation that you're able to return back to camp, you're able to apply as a returner with AmeriCamp. You'd simply need to make your full payment of £289 by going to the returners tab. We'll then set you up an account with our application system, in where you'll be asked some basic questions, to upload a reference from a non-camp contact, and proof that you've been invited to return back to camp.

Third Party Costs

  • CRB - £48.86

    A CRB check is mandatory and must be completed for anyone who works with children. If you have previously been employed in a child-orientated work environment you may already have one, but unfortunately, it must be completed via AmeriCamp's facilities.

  • US Visa - $160 + £34

    The fee for your US visa is paid directly to the US embassy when you book your appointment. A £34 visa handling fee will be applied to your account – once this is paid your DS2019 will be released to you.

    You are required to attend the embassy in person and are responsible for your travel down to the embassy on your interview day.

  • Medical - £0-£60

    To do AmeriCamp you will need a medical check from your GP. This will include a list of vaccinations and immunisations. Different GPs have different pricing plans; however, if your GP is charging more than £60 please contact us for advice.

  • Flights - £350-£500

    We will help you with the booking of your flights and provide great deals!

    The average cost for Summer 2016 was £416.

    We encourage this to be booked through us because it means you are likely to be with other AmeriCampers on the same flight.

  • 18-20 years - $1500-$1600

    If you are aged between 18-20 you will be guaranteed a salary between $1500-$1600.

  • 21 or over - $1750

    If you are lucky enough to be 21 by the 1st of June you qualify for a huge $1750, imagine all the travelling you can do after camp with that!
