Our matching process helps you find well-suited counselors and support staff for your camp. We'll work with you closely to understand what you need. Then we'll match you with the candidates who seem like a good fit for your camp. You'll always make the final hiring decisions, and we'll be here to support you throughout the season.
1. Registration: Register with us for free. On our brief registration form, you'll provide general information about your camp, as well as your staffing needs for the upcoming summer. When you complete your registration, you'll receive a personal account where you can login to review applications, make hiring decisions, and more.
2. Consultation: An InterExchange expert will contact you to learn more about your camp. We want to get a sense of your camp's unique personality.
3. Matching: Based on the information you provide, we'll look for pre-screened participants who match your needs. When matching participants, we take a variety of things into account, including:
- Skills and experience
- English ability
- Dates of availability
Once we find a match, we'll send you the participant's full application.
4. Review: You'll be able to review each participant's application exclusively for five days. We will also provide you with the participant's contact info so that you can talk to them personally.
5. Decision: Contact InterExchange with your decision. If you want to hire the applicant, we'll provide him or her with an InterExchange Camp USA placement offer and commitment letter.
6. Confirmation: To accept the position, the applicant returns a signed commitment letter to both our office and your camp.
Once a participant accepts a camp job, we'll assist with J-1 Visa sponsorship, travel arrangements, orientation, insurance, and other logistics. We make the process hassle-free for you!
Finding a Perfect Team for Your Summer Camp
We know how important it is to find just the right people to keep your campers and their parents coming back every year. Here are a few things to ask yourself as you start filling camp counselor jobs and support staff positions:
- Who were the most popular counselors and staff members at your camp last summer? What made them so special?
- How do you market your camp experience?
- What is your camper demographic & can international staff expand or solidify that demographic?
- What are the most important qualities you look for in camp counselors or staff?
- What's the “personality” of your camp (Friendly? Adventurous? High-Energy? Artistic?)
- What new activities are you trying to incorporate into your program?
- What skills are hard to find in counselors or staff?
- Do you need counselors or staff members who speak other languages?
- How diverse is your employee population?
