If you have an international applicant whom you want to hire directly, we can facilitate their participation at your camp by helping with the simple process of arranging visa sponsorship and health insurance.
Because ICEP has no designation to sponsor support staff, we offer this service for general or program counselors only. The program fee for this service is $400, which includes visa sponsorship, administrative costs, and the participant's health insurance payment. This fee is paid by camp and must be submitted to ICEP before Form DS-2019 can be sent to the counselor.
This service is not meant to circumvent the usual placement procedures, but we do understand there are times when by personal contact or reliable referral you may want to work with a prospective counselor directly.
Returning counselors may also utilize this option when coming back to camp for a 2nd summer or more. However, if you request Direct Placement assistance for a counselor who is returning to your camp but has never participated through ICEP before, he or she must complete the entire 1st year counselor application because he or she is new to ICEP.
These are the simple steps to bringing Direct Placement ICEP counselors to your camp:
All Direct Placement counselors are expected to attend ICEP Orientation in New York or Los Angeles before arriving at camp. We appreciate your cooperation in encouraging Direct Placement participation at Orientation.
Please refer your
Direct Placement counselors to the [Camp
Counselor] section of our website so that they may gain a better
understanding of the ICEP opportunity and application procedures.
