FLIGHTS

CCUSA offers two unique flight package options for first time participants:

  • CCUSA Flight Option - with this option, CCUSA will book your return international flights to camp once you have received a placement. You will fly to the US on the date specified by your camp and into the airport specified by your camp. You will have the ability to select your return flight date preference. All flights depart from London.
  • Own Flight Option - with this option you will be required to book your own return international flights to camp once you have received a placement. Your wages will be higher to help compensate for this. You must fly into the airport as specified by your camp (or make alternative arrangements acceptable by your camp).

WAGES

Your wages, also known as Pocket Money, are determined by several factors:

  • Age as of June 1st
  • Position you are hired for at camp - Counselor, Lifeguard, WSI or Support Staff
  • Which flight option you select (see details above)

The wages/pocket money is based on a 9-week contract at camp (11-weeks for participants placed at Day Camps) and is paid to you directly by your camp based on their pay periods (weekly, monthly or at the end of the summer in which case you may take pay advances). If you work longer than 9-weeks (11-weeks for Day Camps) you will be paid an additional amount per working day as follows:

  • $39 USD per day for Counselor positions
  • $49 USD per day for Support Staff positions

Below are the wages/pocket money you will earn depending on the CCUSA flight option you choose.
