Host an International child aged 11 – 14 yrs this summer for a week or more

HOW IT WORKS

Varsity International works in partnership with our sister company Ultimate Activity Camps to provide opportunities for children from all over the world to make friends through their shared love of sports, arts and adventurous activities.

We are looking for British families to host an international child for a minimum of 1 week between 9th July and 24th August 2018. Ideally, we are looking for families with children aged 4 – 14yrs however we would also like to hear from families whose children are either younger or older than this.

We think hosting is a great experience for all, allowing the international child to live with a British family whilst also giving your family a great opportunity to make a lifelong friend from another country!

Varsity International is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all host families to share this commitment. Applicants must be prepared to undergo child protection screening including reference checks and an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check.

Option 1

CAMP EXCHANGE

(Ideal for those with children at home aged 4 – 14yrs).

They can attend the same camp free of charge for the weeks you are hosting plus you will get 15% discount on all your Ultimate Activity Camps bookings when not hosting.

Option 2

STRAIGHT PAYMENT

(Ideal for those with children either under 4 or over 14yrs).

You host, we pay you, it’s that simple. We pay families £173 per 7-day week per child hosted.
