Meet Camp USA at our International Job Fairs!


2 minutes

Winter is coming and you know what that means - it’s almost time for our overseas Camp USA Job Fairs!

This coming January, InterExchange is proud to host camp fairs in Ireland, Bolivia, and New Zealand. Our camp fairs are an amazing opportunity for our participants to learn more about the program, the American camping experience, and InterExchange!

Having met InterExchange at the camp fair was the best thing for me. I got to know who I'd be working for and what InterExchange could do for me.

What are camp fairs?

Every year, dozens of camp directors travel abroad with us to meet our participants and our overseas partners. During camp fairs, participants have the opportunity to interview with camp directors face-to-face and learn more about each camp and the experience they provide. Are you a strong swimmer? Do you love organizing group games? Do you want to share your love of rock climbing, tennis, or horseback riding with others? If you’re ready to land your summer dream job, come to the fair ready to showcase your personality and skills!

We love bringing our camp employers to new countries so they can learn about the customs and cultures of the staff they hire; we, in turn, love meeting with our participants in their home countries! It’s a wonderful way for InterExchange staff and our camp employers to better connect with our participants, while giving our participants the chance to meet camp directors and find the perfect camp experience for them.

Why choose InterExchange Camp USA?

Participants can feel confident choosing InterExchange because of the personal relationships we’ve developed with camp employers through events like our camp fairs. We only work with the best camps in the country and participants appreciate the deep bond and our thorough understanding of every camp we work with. We take pride in getting to know our participants and our camps, and the personal relationships we’ve cultivated with them sets InterExchange apart from larger, for-profit organizations.

The dates and locations for our 2017 Camp Fairs are:

  • January 13th- Auckland, New Zealand
  • January 15th- Christchurch, New Zealand
  • January 20th- Dublin, Ireland
  • February 3rd- La Paz, Bolivia

In 2017, we will be hosting our first-ever camp fair in Dublin, Ireland and we couldn’t be more excited. We are proud to co-host this event with one of the largest youth travel organizations in Ireland. Together, we are thrilled to connect more than 100 Camp USA participants with American camp directors, many of whom will leave with a job offer, ready for their summer adventure to begin!
