Camp Placement Participants

InterExchange Camp USA works hard to provide each participant with the best, most rewarding placement available. However, we understand that all placements do not always work out. Please read Chapter 9 for detailed instructions on our procedures for handling problems with your placement.

If you are unable to successfully complete your camp assignment, for any reason, you will forfeit your program fee, insurance fee and the remainder of your stipend. Your visa status will be amended or revoked, and you will be responsible for changing your flight You may also need to return home immediately. You must contact InterExchange Camp USA immediately if your status in the program changes. Read the Participant Agreement for information about liability for non-completion of the program.

In the case of a non-completion, your stipend will be calculated based on a 63-day contracted work period. Calculate your prorated stipend using the formula in the box below.

Self and Returning Placement Participants

InterExchange Camp USA is not responsible if your camp job does not work out, since you arranged it independently.

Under no circumstance will InterExchange Camp USA issue a refund to a Self or Returning Placement participant who leaves camp early.
