      Hi and welcome,

      You would need to find a job with a company willing to sponsor you for a visa, this is extremely hard. Sorry I don't know of any in AZ as I am not familiar with the area. Companies such as Disney and Universal offer short term jobs to foreign nationals, but they are not in AZ.

      For such a short time you might be better off looking into companies such as Bunac who do working holidays/year-out type placements.

      Good luck :)

      Camp America is a great idea. I tried to send my eldest off on one but he wouldn't go.
      I didn't know Disney and Universal take on foreign nationals Pink, thanks for that, I'm on my way.

      LOL Yup! I know quite a few who have worked for the summer in Disney and Universal Usually it's students working in Epcot's "United Kingdom" or around the other parks in roles such as life guards or just general Cast Members They even do interviews in the UK.

      Lol fake ID and your sorted! I've wanted to do the camp america thing for a few years now but i have no skills/talent.. Seriously.

      I think i'd have to do the BUNAC one where you can do things like work in the kitchen but still have your free time and can travel afterwards. Im probably a bit too grumpy for the kids anyway lol
