What is the cost of a Summer in the States?

So the big question, the question that could make or break your decision, is "how much will all this cost?"

Well firstly, let us give you a few facts:

  • We do not charge an application fee.
  • You only pay once you have been offered and accepted a job.
  • We do not charge late fees.
  • You can pay in installments so you don’t have to break the bank.

As you can see, USSI is competitive with their price, however we offer you the most affordable costs compared to the other major providers. Shop around, we don't mind! But you'll soon see we offer more, for less:

Costs US Sports Institute Camp Leaders Camp America Challenger
Total £199 £589 £599 £650
Application Fee £0 £49 £223 £100
First Payment £100 £200 £69 £250
Second Payment £99 £340 £95 £300
Third Payment N/A N/A £94 N/A
Other Fees £0 £50 (Late fee) £118 (Insurance) £0

There are just four more things we need to tell you about.

1. Security Deposit - You get this back!
You are required to pay a £225 security deposit. This deposit is fully refundable upon completion of contract. So long as you don't set your room on fire, or pimp our cars, of course.

2. Third Party Fees - We can't help these. Everybody has to pay them, no matter what company they apply for.
The following fees must be paid directly by the employee and are not included in the program fee:
a) ACPO Police Background Check, £45
b) US Embassy Visa Processing Fee, $160 (applicable exchange rates will apply)
c) Medical Examination. This is only necessary in some instances. Fees vary by physician.

3. Flights
You'll need to secure round trip airfare to and from the United States. In the past, we've seen staff secure this for as little as £300 - but we suggest you book as early as possible to beat any price increases.

4. Hidden Fees - This is 100% true!
There aren't any, we tell you everything up front so there are no surprises!

Keeping your costs low is not our only advantage. To find out more about why USSI is the best choice for YOUR summer, have a look through the rest of our employment pages. We’ll help you make the right decision. (And that decision would be us, by the way!)
