Program Overview

The Best Summer of Your Life

CCUSA is an official J1 Camp Counselor Visa Sponsor who organise work placements at summer camps in America. 

Since 1987, over 35,000 Aussies have trusted CCUSA with their summer camp adventure. Our focus is securing the ideal camp to match your personality and skills. 

Known as the 'Summer Camp Specialists', we take great care in placing every participant at the right camp.  Summer camp work is demanding, but the rewards are endless. We pride ourselves on our personalised customer service, affordable program with stacks of inclusions, local offices and representatives across Australia, and an unmatchable reputation with our participants and our summer camps. We are proud that we have found a camp placement for every Camp Counselors USA participant for 30 years.

While we are the largest camp program in Australia, you will still receive individual attention and service from professional and experienced staff who have all worked at summer camps in the USA. These things make CCUSA the most popular way to organise your camp adventure.
