Department of Labor regulations require that some camps in various states pay their support staff a state issued minimum hourly wage. InterExchange Camp USA is leading the industry by having a support staff fee structure that helps camps comply with Department of Labor regulations.
Please educate your candidates about how they will be paid when considering them for support staff positions.
Support staff pay all program fees to the International Cooperator prior to departure. InterExchange Camp USA will invoice International Cooperators a set amount for each Support Staff participant that is a part of the Camp Placement program. The amount invoiced for a Self-Placed Support Staff participant will differ. Please refer to your individual IC Agreement for the most up to date fees/pricing schedule.
Support staff will receive a minimum of $2,700 (pre-tax) for 63 days of work. The state in which they are employed may require their camp to pay an hourly minimum wage. The camp is allowed to make deductions for room and board but participants must still receive at least $2,700 (pre-tax). Please note: Participants are subject to state, local, and federal income taxes.
