Meet The Team
Hello and welcome! Thank you for taking the time to get to know us a little better.
Everyone here at the Wild Packs office is an expert when it comes to all things camp. All our experts have worked at a summer camp and continue to head back to their home from home each year. This keeps us up to date on camp and puts us in the best position possible to interview, coach and place you at your future summer home.We live and breathe summer camp everyday, and we want to share the magic of summer camp with you!
Our focus is on helping every successful applicant get out to work at camp in the USA, and have an amazing summer in the States. We’ll support you through the entire process- making sure your application is as strong as possible, you’re prepped for your interviews with camp directors and updating you on your progress (from initially applying to the visa process).
We only work with the best. All the camps we work with are ACA accredited which means they must adhere to the strict rules and standards of the American Camping Association. Our camp owners/directors are very enthusiastic to speak with you. We have great relationships with our camps and love helping them with all their staffing needs. Because we are in regular communication with our camps you can be assured that we understand the intricacies of their programs and what they are looking for within the staff that they hire.
Wild Packs work in conjunction with IENA. The IENA team has years of experience in camping, international programming and J-1 visas. IENA provide a 24/7 support phone line whilst Wild Packers are in the States at camp and allow Wild Packs to obtain your visa paperwork, enabling you to get to camp.
