Why Summer Camp USA

Have your own summer, not someone else’s. Earn a higher camp salary and have more say in your summer camp placement when applying through BUNAC.

  • $2000 SALARY

Irrespective of age, skills or camp location, with BUNAC you’ll receive a camp salary of USD $2000 – at least $250 more than other summer camp USA operators. As well as being the fair and transparent thing to do, we’re able to do this because we’ve been partners with the largest and oldest work abroad non-profit in America for over 50 years.

  • CAMP MATCHING

At BUNAC, we put you in control of your own camp story. Historically, Camp Directors would choose applicants from a shared pool – giving you little or no choice over your placement. Unique to BUNAC, our Camp Connect matching platform allows you to view different camps and pitch (camp pun intended) for the camp role you want.

  • EXPERT ADVICE

80% of our team have done a summer camp... some up to 10 times. As well as being the Peter Pan of the work abroad world, BUNAC have a reputation for placing the strongest applicants. We take the time to learn about you and your interests – recommending the camps and roles that ensure you get the most out of your camp experience.

  • EASY APPLICATIONS

All Americana without the drama, our decades of experience help to take the stress out of your application. We cut through the jargon to give you first-hand advice on visas, interview prep and exactly what to expect. Plus, our camp applications are now fully virtual, meaning you’ll save time and money not travelling to interviews and orientations.

  • BE PART OF SOMETHING BIGGER

The American summer camp programme was originally created to help prevent conflict through bringing young people together to live and work together. Today, these values of inclusion, diversity and education through travel are at the heart of our BUNAC Summer Camp USA programme.

A summer camp in America isn’t just a season, it’s a stepping stone to so much more.

  • FURTHER EDUCATION

U, S, A+. If you’re looking to pursue a career in teaching or working with children and young adults, then no other summer job will give you the contact hours and hands-on experience you need to continue your further training and education.

  • FURTHER EMPLOYMENT

Summer camp not only gives you valuable life experience, but it also gives you the leadership skills that future employers are looking for - overcoming challenges, working under pressure and having the confidence to live abroad.

  • FURTHER ADVENTURES

A jumping off point for gap years, many travellers use their camp salary and 30 days after camp to explore America’s iconic cities, coastlines and national parks before flying off on round the world trips or working holidays.
