Visas for International Staff and Campers

Annually, nearly 30,000 international students provide cultural exchange as staff at camps in the United States.  International campers also provide an important aspect of cultural exchange as they live side-by-side in US camps with American campers.  The US Department of State regulates the granting of Visas for both staff and campers.  

International Camp Staff

All international visitors to the United States travel on visas.  Generally, international camp staff travel on a J-1 cultural exchange visa.  

International Campers

International campers generally travel on a B-2 visa.  Visit the U.S. Department of State web site for all details, including how to apply.
