How We Screen Camps:
InterExchange only places participants at reputable, well-established camps in the USA. Before working with a camp, InterExchange representatives gather comprehensive information about the camp, its philosophy, and its staffing needs. We always follow up with a detailed call with the camp director, and often conduct a personal visit to the camp during the season. If you participate in the InterExchange Camp Staff Placement Program, you can rest assured that you'll be placed at an exceptional camp.
How We Match Participants and Camps
With our detailed understanding of each camp's needs, we find the best candidates for each camp job. When matching participants, we take a variety of things into account, including:
- Dates of availability
- Skills and experience
- English ability
Once we make a match, we'll the send the participant's full application to the appropriate camp. Each camp may review each application exclusively for five days. If the camp decides to hire an individual, we'll provide the participant with an InterExchange Camp USA placement offer and commitment letter.
Then, everyone gets ready for a great summer!
