Participant Reviews

From New York to California, there's a camp waiting for you!

We work with over 900 incredible camps all across the States and will work with you to help you find the perfect fit based on your experience with children, skills and preferred job role!

Your average AmeriCamp placement normally lasts from mid-June to mid-August. If you are available from early June until late August, then even better! The more flexible you are with your dates, the more camps there are to view your application.

Sadly, we cannot accept anyone after a June 21st start date, but don’t worry we have other amazing Summer options for you such as AmeriCamp Canada, Camp Thailand, Camp Bali or other programs featured on Camp.co.uk.

Email us at [email protected] with the subject ‘Other Summer Options’ and we will give you a discount off these other programs!
