The Placement Process

InterExchange Camp USA works closely with both camps and participants to match appropriate candidates with available positions.


Each camp director fills out a registration form online, which outlines general information about the camp and specific staffing needs for the upcoming summer, and agrees to InterExchange Terms and Conditions in the Camp Agreement.


Based on the camp directors’ requests and the participants’ strengths and interests, InterExchange Camp USA selects appropriate candidates for each camp and directs these applications to the camp hiring manager. In the InterExchange Camp USA online application system, a search feature is also available for those who wish to search, browse and review applications according to their own timeline.


The camp retains each participant’s application for exclusive review for a period of five days. At this time, camp directors may contact the participant to get a better idea of how he or she might fit in at the camp.


After making a decision about an applicant, the camp director logs onto the camp director home page through the InterExchange website. If a participant is accepted, we notify the IC, who then forwards an InterExchange Camp USA placement offer to the participant.

Matching Camps & Participants

In matching participants and camps, InterExchange Camp USA considers several factors, including:

  • Personality

  • Dates of availability
  • Age
  • English level
  • Maturity
  • Attitude

Please inform us of any special circumstances within your camp environment that might affect the placement process. The more detail you give us, the better able we are to find the perfect staff for your camp.
