How the Process Works


Complete our online application form

The application form is completely free to complete and there are no interview costs. Our biggest piece of advice is to really think about the content of your application; we’re looking for you to impress us! Tell us about your hobbies, skills and your experience with kids. Whilst we’re not looking for thousands of words, detail is important, as is a properly written application- so check your spelling! We’ll work with you through the program and help you with the application at every stage.

Once your application has been submitted you’ll be contacted by one of the recruitment team for an informal interview

We like to have a few conversations with you (over the phone/Skype); so that we get to know you better! We want to help you impress our camp directors so we’ll normally set you some homework. This could be getting some more experience with kids, looking into a certification or simply to add some more detail to your application.

If you’re accepted onto the program we will set your proof of intent payment

This initial £75 goes towards your total program fees.  You will then complete the second part of your application and start submitting the documents that are required in order to obtain your J1 visa.

We will re-review your application

Once we think you have presented the best impression of who you are and what you have to offer a camp, you will then pay the remainder of your program fees, £295. These fees can be paid in instalments and cover the cost of your J1 sponsorship, your medical insurance cover and 24hr support during the summer.

We start chatting with our directors!

We will match you with a camp that we think is perfect for you and your skills/experience. Then you’ll speak with the owners (normally over Skype) and should both parties be happy you will be offered a contract!

We must stress that we will guide you through every step

Once we have all your supporting paperwork, your embassy appointment will be arranged on your behalf. You will then need to visit the US Embassy to attend your appointment. This is the time to get very excited as summer is just around the corner!!

All that’s left now is to get excited, pack up your bags and get on that plane to America!
