International Placement Organizations
As a potential international staff member, you must apply through one of the following international placement organizations. Since face-to-face interviews and police background checks are required, we cannot place you directly. When you contact the organization you can tell them you would like your application sent to Camp Tecumseh YMCA first. If we don’t have a position to fit your skills and talents, you would then have the opportunity to be placed at another camp.
Here are the organizations and their contact information. These organizations will be able to tell you where to contact them in your home country and what process you must go through. If you are a student in the United States, you may be able to go through the International office at your university so check with them first.
