5. Preparing Your Documents
Why won't my documents upload?
All documents need to be uploaded in a PDF format. Multiple pages needs to be uploaded as one file. You also can easily upload your documents using your phone camera. Download the app on either an Apple or Android device.
What certificates do I need to upload?
You only need to upload certificates if you are going to be a specialist at summer camp. For example, if your going to be a Lifeguard at camp, you will need to upload your lifeguard qualification.
Where do I get my camp contract from?
Once you have been placed, your summer camp will either email your contract to you or upload it to your campminder account. Please sign and date your contract before uploading.
What is covered in the insurance?
The insurance you receive as part of the program is a basic medical package, however, you are able to upgrade your policy. You can choose to include travel insurance or premium cover, from your profile. If you have a pre-existing medical condition or are travelling with expensive equipment, we recommend researching alternative cover.
What if I have a pre-existing illness, will Camp Leaders insurance cover me?
The insurance cover included in your Camp Leaders package doesn't cover pre-existing medical conditions. Should you need additional cover or care, we can help advise the best options.
Why do I need a police check?
Every participant needs a valid police check which must be in date from September of the year you are applying. As you are working with children this is essential, it is also a legal requirement to enter the states on a J-1 Cultural Exchange Visa.
What criminal background check do I need?
We need an enhanced criminal background check dated past the 1st September of the season you’re applying. We need an ICPC or an enhanced DBS.
What embassy confirmation do I upload?
