International Camp Counselor (ICCP)

The Camp Counselor Program enables post-secondary students, youth workers, and teachers to share their culture and ideas with the people of the United States in camp settings throughout the country.

If you are looking for the adventure of a lifetime, consider enrolling in our Camp Counselor Programme.

Camp Counselors must be:

Sufficiently proficient in the English language to supervise and interact with American youth; A foreign post-secondary student, youth worker, teacher or individual with specialized skills; and At least 18-30years-old.

Regular ICCP Program

Camp Counselor: Young adults between ages 18-30 work during the summer months (May-August) in camping programs. Camp counselors work with children and adults providing leadership and delivering programs.

Summer Work and Travel: International university students work in support staff positions and experience camp life during their official school break. ICCP Work & Travel participants work in camps, YMCAs, non-profit organizations, conference centers in various non-program positions (i.e. food service, maintenance, front desk, member service, etc).

No matter which role you are assigned, you will take part in a transformative cultural exchange experience that will allow you to:

  • Develop essential leadership and teaching skills and independence
  • Establish lifelong friendships with your peers, mentors, and youth
  • Share a part of yourself and your culture through meaningful interactions with both campers and peers
  • Gain a deeper understanding of and appreciation for U.S. culture

At the end of the season, adventure still awaits. For up to 30 days following your time at camp, you will travel the U.S., visiting quintessential American locations, meeting diverse people, exploring an eclectic mix of traditional American cuisine, and more!
