ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Camp Counselors USA provides several events prior to your departure to the USA. Some of these events are optional and some are mandatory (as per J-1 visa regulations). Travel to these events are at your own cost.

Optional

  1. Summer Camp Job Fairs (in Dublin, Ireland and Leeds & London, UK) – you can choose which location you would like to attend. We do encourage all participants who have not yet received a placement by the time of these events, to attend a job fair. This is a great way to meet camps face-to-face, learn more about camp and hopefully secure a job on the day!

Mandatory

  1. An in-person interview for your J-1 visa (required for work at camp) at the US Embassy in Dublin.
  2. A pre-departure orientation conducted by CCUSA. Attendance at one of these meetings is a requirement of the J-1 visa program. Meetings are held in Dublin and Belfast.
