Maine Summer Camps and the CIEE Camp Exchange USA team have partnered to host a live webinar event on Tuesday, March 17. Attend in person at CIEE’s Portland headquarters or join online for a webinar and discussion that covers supporting international staff and campers in your camp community, helpful do’s and don’ts, tips for American staff members, and practical takeaways to help ensure a successful summer. CIEE is the largest J-1 visa sponsor in the U.S., and their 70 years of experience in international exchange make them uniquely qualified to offer this learning opportunity. We look forward to connecting with you in March! You will receive the link to register for this webinar in early March.
