The American Institute for Foreign Study (Australia) Pty Ltd opened its Australian office in 1999 and began offering its Camp America and Au Pair in America programs to young Australians. In 2005, AIFS commenced offering inbound programs and currently facilitates cultural exchange programs for more than 2,000 young people.
Your first chance to explore will be during your days off at camp. You can use these days to visit the local towns and cities close to your camp.
Many camps offer transport off camp during your time off, or you may be lucky enough to be in walking distance of a local town!
Once camp has finished, you can stay in America for up to 30 days and use this time to travel with your new mates.
The USA is a great country to explore on any budget and along with our flexible return flights and Camp America Treks, we’re here to make your after camp travel time really easy, so you can concentrate on enjoying yourself!
From the USA, it's really easy to continue your travels into Canada, Europe or a stop over in south-east Asia before heading home.
To make sure you're still covered, makes it simple to extend your insurance to cover you outside the USA. Please contact the office for further information.
If spectacular views are your thing, you'll want to put the Grand Canyon on your list.
Amazing during the day, but well worth visiting in the evening to check out the lights. It is a place where New York city never sleeps.
Visiting California? Visit Yosemite, one of the oldest national parks in the USA.
Wonder at the bright red beauty of the Golden Gate Bridge as it spans the bay.
AIFS has partnered with Flight Centre to offer you great value and flexible flights. They are experienced in travel and can offer special rates. With extra insight and experience, they’ve been helping to arrange travel for Camp America applicants year after year.
