Counselling at Camp America Offers the Experience of a Lifetime

Travelling to another country is a rare and rewarding experience. The American Institute of Foreign Study (AIFS) offers many opportunities for young adults to travel to America to work at Camp America or participate in the Au Pair program.

Camp America is a co-ed program and accepts applications from young adults 18 and older. This program offers the opportunity to work as a camp counsellor for American summer camps for a full or partial summer. As a camp counsellor, you would lead children and teens in group activities and act as a role model. Camp America provides all meals, medical insurance for the length of the camp, and pocket money compensation. Even if you aren’t planning on going into a career in childcare, all who get along well with children are welcome to apply.

We also offer the Au Pair exchange program for young women wishing to live in America for a year. As an Au Pair, you’ll be matched with a carefully screened American host family and receive weekly pocket money allowances, some money towards studying at American colleges, and frequent social activities with other Au Pairs in the same area. As an Au Pair, you’ll provide childcare to the host family’s children in exchange for this amazing experience.

AIFS Australia offers programs for all experience and skill levels and is the perfect opportunity for young adults to travel to a foreign country and gain valuable work experience. We are an official visa sponsor recognised by the US Government and provide your J-1 Visa Sponsorship, allowing you to work in the US during your travels. We have a great staff for supporting Au Pairs and Camp America counsellors who work to make this the experience of a lifetime. Apply for the 2016 season today!
