The CCUSA Aussie Staff

We've got great team spirit here at CCUSA with everyone having their own area of expertise and bringing different strengths to the different programs we have on offer. 

We have three full time offices in Australia, and many of our staff have been with the company or involved in the camping industry for over 15 years! This knowledge and experience can only benefit you. Our staff will provide you with the best customer care experience when you apply for a CCUSA adventure. 

When applying you’ll get to know all of us at some point, either over the phone, if you pop into the office, on social media or at an event, but in the meantime find out a little more below about the amazing CCUSA team.

Vivienne spent two summers working as a general counselor at Day Camp Sunshine, a Christian day camp in New Jersey. She loved looking after the 7 and 8 year old girls both years that she went. Her favourite parts of camp was teaching the kids the bible, song time and playing group activities like capture the flag and how well do you know your counselor. Camp was a life changing experience for her and she loves being able to work for CCUSA to send people to have the same experience as she did.

KAYLA KINGSTON

DID YOU KNOW . . .Kayla didn't experience a winter for over 8 years because she refused to stop chasing the American summer.
