We offer a flexible booking guarantee, so that in the unlikely event that your camp placement is affected by COVID, you’re able to transfer your application to a future year! This means you won’t miss out on doing AmeriCamp Canada and gaining that summer camp experience!
Alternatively, if you aren’t available for the 8-10 weeks that AmeriCamp requires in a future summer, we will transfer your application to one of our sister Camp.co.uk brands that run from 10 days to 21 days.
We will work with you to find the perfect camp based on your experience, skills and preferred job role!
Your average AmeriCamp Canada placement lasts from mid-June to mid-August. If you are available from early June until late August, then even better! The more flexible you are with your dates, the more camps there are to view your application.
Sadly, we cannot accept anyone after a June 21st start date, but don’t worry we have other amazing Summer options for you such as Camp Thailand, Camp Bali, Camp South Africa or other programs featured on Camp.co.uk.
Email us at Info@AmeriCampCanada.com with the subject ‘Other Summer Options’ and we will give you a discount off these other programs!
The Camp Counsellor role you will be applying for with AmeriCamp Canada can take many forms.
Whatever your skills and background, we’ll be sure to find the perfect role for you!
Make the first step towards your summer of a lifetime by selecting your preferred payment option. You’ll then be directed to your own personal AmeriCamp Canada application portal!
After choosing your preferred payment option, you will complete your Stage 1 written application (this will take you up to 1 hour). Please provide detail on your skills, experiences with children, your preferred camp types and your summer availability dates. Once this part of your application has been reviewed and accepted by a member of the team, we’ll be in touch to arrange your interview!
Now that you’ve completed your Stage 1, the next step is to have an interview with one of our lovely Campus Managers. Treat this as more of a chat through your application with someone who has the experience of going to camp. You will also have the chance to ask any questions you may have about the application process or about camp life in general!
Upon completion of a successful interview, you will progress onto Stage 2 of your application – which will include 2 references and a 2-3 minute application video. This stage will ensure that your application is ready to be seen by our camps in Canada so you can start being reviewed for summer camp positions!
If you’ve selected to Pay in Stages, your Stage 2 fee will now be due. You’ll need to make this payment before your application can be viewed by our Canadian camps.
Once you have completed Stage 2 in full, your application will be ready to be sent to our Placement System. Our dedicated placement team will then work with our Canadian camps to find you a camp that’s a great fit for you!
Be prepared to receive a notification once your application goes on review with a camp then be sure to keep an eye out for any emails inviting you to an interview!
Congratulations – you’ve been placed! Now that you’ve been successful in finding a camp for summer, you’ll need to upload the remainder of your documents including your background check, medical form and travel history form.
(If you’ve selected to enter Canada on a Work Permit through us (our most popular option), you’ll need to pay your work permit package processing fee at this stage too!)
If you’ve selected to Pay in Stages, your Stage 3 fee will now be due. You’ll need to make this payment before your application status can officially be changed to ‘Placed’!
*These steps only apply if you select our ‘Pay in Stages’ payment option
