YOU'RE GOING TO CHINA!

You'll have an interview with one of our camp directors, to see if you're the right fit for their camp. This interview may be via Skype, or face-to-face at one of our job fairs.

Getting a place at summer camp can take anywhere from 24 hours to 3 months, so don't worry if it takes longer than you expected.

6. GO TO A PREP DAY

We run an action-packed overnight retreat for everyone on the Adventure China program.

Our Prep Days are a great opportunity to get a taste of Chinese culture and to meet other people heading to your camp. You'll leave feeling fully prepared for the amazing summer ahead.

"CHINA, MADE SIMPLE."

7. Get your visa

AFTER A QUICK INTERVIEW AT THE CHINESE EMBASSY YOU'LL RECEIVE YOUR F TYPE VISA.

During the preparation day, we will explain the visa process, prepare your paperwork and book your appointment at your closest Chinese embassy.

You'll then attend a face-to-face appointment to secure your China Travel (F) Visa.

So hop on the plane and embark on your unique adventure...

CONGRATULATIONS. YOU'VE SORTED YOUR SUMMER IN 8 SIMPLE STEPS.

READY TO BEGIN?

Do I have to have an interview?

Your interview with the Adventure China team is part of the process - but don't worry, we're really friendly! We'll provide guidance, support and will be able to answer any questions you may have about the process.

Can I choose which camp I go to?

Choosing your camp isn't an option, but we will do everything we can to place you at the best camp for you! Include as much detail as possible on the skills section of your profile and we'll help to match you with the best possible camp for you. The more in-depth your profile is, the more we have to show camp directors why you'd be a perfect addition to their summer camp staff.

It is a summer placement, so a camp will need to hire you in order for us to send you there. Before you accept an offer from camp you will have met your Camp Director and be well informed about the camp. We carefully select each of our summer camps so we're sure that you'll love wherever you go!

When will I find out which camp I'm going to?

All you need to do is pay your deposit, book your interview and complete your application to become 'ready to hire'. Once you have reached this stage, our Camp Directors will be able to see your profile and hire you!

If I don't live in the US can I still apply?

Yes. We have 15 offices around the world so it is likely that we will be able to support you with your application. Call us if you're interested, and we'll get your summer sorted in no time!

Can I do Adventure China with a friend?

We will be able to get you both to camp, but we can't guarantee that it'll be the same camp. Some of our Camp Directors will hire friends, but others prefer to hire people individually.

Remember that you can meet up after camp for your 30 days of travel. Check out our China travel guides and make your travel plans together.
