For a full description of all cancellation and refund policies for both Camp Placement and Self Placement participants, please consult your International Cooperator or the Participant Agreement section of your application.
If you cancel from the program after accepting a placement offer, you may forfeit your full program fee.
If the U.S. Embassy denies you a visa, you must return your unused DS-2019 Form to your International Cooperator before September 1st of this year and submit proof of the denial. Once you do both of those things, you will be issued a refund. See your Participant Agreement for a current refund policy.
The $35 SEVIS fee is non-refundable after you have accepted a placement offer.
InterExchange Camp USA will not refund program fees under any circumstance for any participant who has already entered the United States.
If you are unable to complete your first placement due to circumstances beyond your control, InterExchange Camp USA may choose to help you find a second placement. However, we cannot guarantee a second placement.
As a Self Placement participant, in the event you cancel before InterExchange issues a DS-2019 Form, you are eligible for a refund of program and insurance fees paid that you have paid in full, minus a $50 administrative fee.
If you cancel after InterExchange has issued a DS-2019 Form, InterExchange will refund program and insurance fees that you have paid in full, less a $100 administrative fee.
InterExchange Camp USA will not refund program fees under any circumstances for any participant who cancels after the documented program start date.
The $35 SEVIS fee, shipping and late fees are non-refundable.
If you cancel from the Self Placement program for any reason, you must notify InterExchange and your International Cooperator immediately. Failure to do so can affect refund possibilities. For more information on cancellations, please contact your International Cooperator and review their cancellation policy.
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 and may 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 Placement Participants
InterExchange Camp USA is not responsible if your camp job does not work out, since you arranged it independently. We will not be able to find you a replacement camp job if you leave camp for any reason. Please make sure you let our Camp USA program staff know if you leave your job before your contract ends.
Under no circumstance will InterExchange Camp USA issue a refund to a Self Placement participant who leaves camp early.
