Meet The Team
Hello and welcome!
Thank you for taking the time to get to know us a little better.
We specialise in screening, coaching and placing appropriate applicants on children’s summer camps all over America. We pride ourselves on being open and honest with all elements of the program.
All members of the team have worked at camp, firstly as camp counselors and then worked our way up to leadership positions for several summers; many of us will be return to camp year after year. We really do 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 your on your progress (from initially applying to the visa process).
Our camp owners are very enthusiastic to speak with you. We have great relationships with our camps and love helping them with all of 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. Once you are officially on the program you will hear from our placement team. They want to get to know you better so they can help match you to the perfect camp for you.
Wild Packs work in conjunction with IENA and CIEE. The IENA and CIEE teams have years of experience in camping, international programming and J-1 visas. IENA and CIEE 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.
When it comes to working at camp we encourage you to look at all your options but before you commit yourself in any particular direction, please, please, please read the small print. There is no such thing as a “free flight”. If you are not at least breaking even with your costs, you are paying over the odds.
