Placement & Fees

Let us guide you

Placement process

Hiring for your summer needs is a simple, straight-forward process when you partner with AmeriCamp as your camp counselor sponsor. An AmeriCamp Account Manager works directly with you to determine how hiring J-1 participants can best fit within your camp organization and needs.

Determine your Placement Needs

Our placement team will work with you to understand your hiring needs and develop a roadmap for your international staff with AmeriCamp.

Recruit Qualified Candidates

Our network of global partners advertises and recruits talented candidates under a thorough screening process.

Match and Place

Your dedicated account manager will match incoming applicants with the positions you have available allowing you exclusive access to qualified candidates to interview and place.

Complete Final Paperwork

Once you have chosen your AmeriCamp counselors, we will work with you to ensure all required paperwork is provided before camp starts and that your travel-to-camp needs are confirmed.

Welcome your Employees!

We conduct pre-departure orientations and guide them through arrival.  After that, you'll have the opportunity to teach them all about your culture and introduce them to living in America!
