What do we know about hiring international counselors that you don’t? Let us tell you! Here are just a few of our services that our camp directors tell us make the difference for them.
It takes a special kind of person — someone with energy, enthusiasm, warmth, and dedication — to be successful working at a camp. InterExchange Camp USA recruits participants who are up to the task. Through our network of international cooperating agencies, we find young adults who are well-suited to the demands and rewards of summer camp jobs, and we interview them to make sure they have the right skills, experience, and personality to be part of your team.
We recruit counselor and support staff candidates from 19 countries around the world. Your American campers and local staff will enjoy the chance to connect with international camp staff and will have the opportunity to learn about their cultures, languages, sports, crafts, and hobbies when they’re working together.
If you already work with another J-1 sponsor, you can work with us too. You don't have to limit your options! Register to open your free account and review applications. There’s no obligation to hire.
As a nonprofit organization, InterExchange keeps its program fees affordable and transparent. We don’t think you should have to break the bank to benefit from our cultural exchange program. We’re committed to offering the best services at the lowest cost possible, and, regardless of where candidates come from or what skills they bring with them, our fees remain the same. This philosophy means our participants get to keep more of their earnings, making for happier camp staff - and happier campers at your camp!
Advanced Online System
Our advanced online system allows you to search for participants that match your needs based on availability, skills, English ability, age, and other criteria. If you prefer a more personal approach, our team can also recommend applicants based on your selection criteria, but you always have the final say. You can even put a preferred applicant “on hold” exclusively for seven days. Once you know who you want to hire, you can make job offers directly to those participants within the online system. We’ll keep working with you until you’re completely satisfied with your staff.
We’ve been in this business a long time - more than 40 years, in fact! We keep the whole process simple for you, from recruiting staff to assisting with J-1 Visa paperwork to arranging insurance for participants. Plus, we’re campers at heart! Each member of the InterExchange Camp USA staff has worked at and attended a camp. We know that every camp is different, and we’ll work closely with you to ensure a smooth and successful summer.
We don’t mean to brag, but nobody delivers better service than InterExchange. When you work with us, you become part of the InterExchange family. We work with hundreds of camps and participants from 19 different countries, and our team treats each client with dedicated, personal attention. We strive to know all of our camp directors personally, and we’re here to deliver the best options to ensure your camp has another successful summer.
