About Stars N Stripes

The Who's Who

The Company

At Stars N Stripes, we focus on finding exceptional applicants and giving them a high-quality summer camp experience. Our focus is on identifying hard to find, specialized staff, who demonstrate a great work ethic and the enthusiasm needed to work in a high-energy camp dynamic. We take a limited number of summer camp staff each year, which allows us to adequately screen and hand-pick our summer camp staff. Limiting our staff also ensures that every applicant receives personalized attention and assistance through the camp placement and visa process. We want the process to be as seamless as possible for all parties involved.

We work with camps across the U.S. If you're a camp director interested in learning more about us, please visit the CAMP DIRECTORS PAGE or CONTACT US directly.

Management Staff

James Kavanagh

Program Director

Howdy Stars N Stripes Potential Staff & Camp Directors / Staff! I am the Program Director for Stars N Stripes Summer Camp Staffing. I'm originally from Liverpool and I came to America to work at a summer camp, on my summer break from Uni in 1999. After spending that summer on the east coast, I knew I wanted to come back! I spent the next 3 summers working at camps across the U.S. In 2002, I moved to California permanently. I've worked in the camp industry for the last 15 years, and have been involved with both running and managing camps, as well as recruiting specialized (primarily sports coaches) summer camp staff from the UK. I launched Stars N Stripes 2 years ago to provide better opportunities for both specialized individuals looking to work at a US summer camp and for Camp Directors trying to identify hard to find staff. Please contact me directly with any questions. Looking forward to working with you and all the best!
