Adventure Awaits.

One of the best things about doing Camp America is the chance to travel! Always wanted to visit Yankee Stadium or take a walk along Santa Monica beach? You can do it with the friends you made at camp. How many US states can you tick off!

On Your Days Off

You can use your days off at camp to visit local towns and cities nearby.

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!

Before & After Camp Placement

You can arrive early to the USA and spend 30 days prior to camp travelling. Once camp has finished, you can stay in America for up to 30 days and use this time to travel with your new mates.

Explore America for a mix of cultures, awesome scenery, and non-stop fun. Dive into big cities, check out cool landmarks, and savor unique local eats. From buzzing urban vibes to chill national parks, the USA has something for everyone.

Winter Work Canada & Japan

Taking a Gap Year and would like to continue the adventure after camp? We also offer Winter Work options in Japan & Canada at a special discounted price for those participating in Camp America.

Work at a world-class ski resort and spend your days off on the slopes, socialising with people from all over the world. We secure a job for you before you arrive, help you find accommodation, and provide ongoing support.
