Where do my fees go?

We know that when you’re young, money is always tight so it’s important to know what you need to pay and when. We pride ourselves on our ‘upfront and honest’ approach to fees so you know exactly what you’re paying for.

In order to offer you the best service and the highest level of support, Camp America charges a ‘fee for service’. This fee covers our costs of recruitment, marketing, interviewing and selection, placement and ongoing support in Australia and of course, the USA, as well as 5 months medical insurance which is organised through Camp America UK.

We aim to keep our prices low whilst providing you with the best service and the best experience at summer camp. With over 40 years experience and thousands choosing Camp America every year, we think we are doing something right!
