Looking for Summer Work in America? Join the Longest Running USA Summer Camp Program in Australia!

Have you been dreaming of a summer of fun, self-discovery and life changing experiences in America? With the Camp America program offered through AIFS Australia, you can make that dream come true and be more than just a tourist!

AIFS, or the American Institute for Foreign Study, has been in business since the 1960s, and has been operating an Australian chapter since 1999. Since then, our Camp America program has grown into the longest running and best-known program for Australian students seeking summer work in America.

If you are between the ages of 18 and 26 and are interested in seeing the world, then the Camp America program might be right for you! Not only will it give you a chance to visit and experience the United States, but it will also offer you paid summer work in the USA. In other words, it's the best of both worlds: you can travel the world without giving up the important money-earning opportunities that summertime provides.

How it Works

If you are interested in summer work in America, check out Camp America online, at campamerica.com.au. As you will see, we focus on placing Australian students—many of whom are in the midst of university studies—at summer camps throughout the USA. Our program works with literally hundreds of summer camp programs in America, which means our students are placed all over the country. From California to the Carolinas and beyond, we offer golden opportunities to explore America without emptying your bank account.

Our programs last nine weeks—so, the majority of the average summer vacation—during which you will be provided with work placement, full living accommodations (including room, food and often even laundry), personal insurance coverage, J-1 visa sponsorship and even allotted travel time. Indeed, once our camps and your summer work in the USA concludes, you won't just be expected to hop on a flight and come back to Australia right away. On the contrary, we allow our students to have 30 days of travel time once camp is concluded so that you can see the sights in America without worrying about shirking your work responsibilities.

In essence, at Camp America, we provide an almost-all-expenses paid excursion to the United States. You will be expected to pay for your own flights to and from your camp location. However, we will work with you and with our partners at STA Travel to find you the best deals possible.
