If you are looking for a solution to your camp staff needs, American Work Experience (AWE) may be just the answer you are looking for! As an authorized sponsor of the J-1 cultural exchange visa, AWE provides camps with qualified enthusiastic counsellors and support staff from around the world. This legal staffing solution will provide you with international staff for at least 9 weeks assignment during your main summer season at camp. We offer an exciting alternative that will not only fill your staffing needs, but also add an international cultural dynamic to your camp.

American Work Experience is dedicated to providing a quality cultural exchange experience for all who take part in our program. We strive to ensure both participants and camp directors have a successful and enjoyable experience by providing excellent individualized service and ensuring each applicant is placed with a job or position that is appropriate to his or her skills and experiences.

Why Use AWE?

AWE is committed to providing excellent service to all of our clients. We do our best to provide a quality experience for everyone through individualized service and excellent benefits. As a designated sponsor of a J-1 cultural exchange program, AWE has been thoroughly screened by the United States State Department and must report annually on our activities and programs. For this reason and because we believe in the value of cultural exchange and enabling the most positive experience for all, we take the time to screen each participant and employer for suitability to the program and their motivations for participation.

AWE Programs

AWE Camp Programme offers a choice of two staffing categories:

1) Support Staff
2) Specialist/Sport and Special Needs Counsellors

If you wish to hire your summer staff through our Camp Programme, your camp will be charged our agency fee and you will be required to pay pocket money for the 9 week assignment to the participants according to the table of Camp Fees shown below. Whether you are willing to hire professional skilled staff 'Specialist/Sport and Special Needs Counsellors' or just the 'Support Staff' for general work, the Camp Programme option enables you to do so.


Regardless of the option selected, All employers must complete the "AWE Employer registration form". This will enable zou to log-in to our system at www.awedatabase.com and generate the AWE Employment agreements by creating job locations and job positions and assign students to these jobs. This agreement is used to solidify the placement details for your staff and allows us to provide them with the information they need to process their visa and arrive at your doorstep on time.

We also offer Camp Directors the possibility of recruiting your own staff. AWE will then help in the facilitation of the visa process.

What AWE Provides

All Camp Directors will have access to a number of services and benefits:

  • Professional and comprehensive support from a team of experienced staff.
  • Detailed applications including three written references, a medical form and police background check for each participant.
  • An Interview Report for each participant.
