Most summer camps will offer this amount as a minimum however depending on your skill set and experience you could be looking at receiving a higher salary.

You will arrive on your summer camp a few weeks before the campers. This time at camp is one of the highlights for many staff as you receive all the summer training you will require to fulfil your chosen camp councillor role. This in conjunction with getting to know people that will likley become lifelong summer camp friends.

We don’t have any application charges, and you’ll be able to speak with a member of our experinced summer camp team before you decide to commit to the program. We firmly believe in making sure you are the right person for the job, and that the summer camp USA adventure is something you really want to do, before any costs are involved.

Apply Today & Start Your Journey

Wild Packs will reimburse you with £200 for one friend that you recommend to Wild Packs, who hasn’t been to camp before and isn’t already in talks with any camps. Your friend must then be accepted, pay their full fees, be placed and have a successful summer at camp for you to be reimbursed. There is no limit to the amount of recommendations you can make. For example, recommend three friends to us and receive £600! Please read through the terms and conditions for more details, or talk to a member of the Wild Packs team.

Your program costs cover your visa paperwork, SEVIS and comprehensive medical insurance whilst at camp. You will also have access to 24 hr support whilst in the US for the entire duration of stay should the need arise.

Other additional may include a police background check and medical (medical not required by Wild Packs, but may be required by camp). Any applicant applying for camp must also visit their local US Embassy to have their visa interview, the cost of this is set by your local embassy, and is currently $160 USD.  We are happy to provide more information on this and give you guidance on how to book your appointment when the time arrives!

Application & Interview Cost You Nothing


The aim is to break even on paper, and come home with a little extra to play with but do not forget that food, training and accommodation is all included at no additional charge. Take that into consideration and it’s a pretty sweet deal. Are you going to come home with your salary? Well you might but it’s unlikely as 99% of folk go travelling around America after camp and blow it all in Disney World.

Low Program Fees & High Salaries



Let’s dispel another myth. Flights are never free.  Our camps want to see you organising your own flight because you can get a better deal if you do it yourself and it shows them that you can be responsible for your own travel. Of course, we will still help you find the best deals out there if you want a little guidance.

Once placed, your travel to camp arrangements will be sent to you by camp directly. Using this information you can shop around for the best deal.
