Our Success Stories

Camp was a thrilling experience that went above and beyond my expectations. I can’t say I wasn’t nervous at the beginning.

NAOMI BUSTAMANTE, 22 CAMP NEWAYGO, MICHIGAN

Camp was overall a great experience. Aside from building friendships with people from all over the world, I think one of the best parts of my camp experience was learning the different perspectives they had about people with special needs.

LEANDRA YU, 22 SUMMIT CAMP, PENNSYLVANIA

Camp experience was a rollercoaster ride for me. Truth be told, it’s not all about fun. You’ll get frustrated, you’ll feel down. But at the end of it all, you get a rewarding and fulfilling feeling because the campers are amazing.

    The Camp Counselor Exchange program is a US Department of State J1 cultural exchange program where participants get to live, work, and play in camps across America for 9 to 10 weeks during the summer. It is a unique experience where participants take part in an authentic American tradition. Participants discover this quintessential part of American culture while sharing their own culture at a camp setting.

    After camp, participants will have a 30-day grace period in their VISA to travel around the US!
