Self Placement and Returners


    Choose from 2 Options depending on your situation:

    If you've already got a place at camp and are looking for the J1 Visa Sponsorship - or if you're returning to the same camp you went to last year you'll need to go through a slightly different application process.
    Choose an option below to see more information

    If you've already been to a camp but are looking for a place at a new one for this year you'll need to follow the instructions for our main programme

    Option 1: Self Placed 1st timers

    Choose this if you have secured your own place at Camp

    Many people get their own place at camp - maybe you had contacts through a friend or family - or maybe you just got stuck in and contacted Camps yourself!
    Either way you will still need the J1 Sponsorship - which is where we come in!
    If you have your place at Camp you just need to get in touch with us and we will guide you through the process.

    Option 2: Returners

    Choose this if you have secured a job at the same camp as last year

    Its the same old story - boy/girl meets camp, fall in love, boy/girl wants to go back to the same camp next year!
    If you loved your Camp last year and your Camp loved you, then it's only natural to want to go again.
    YOU CAN!
    Just get in contact with the team and we'll work with you to make sure this summer is as great as the last one!
