The Placement Fee (370€) is payable upon receipt of a job offer.
As a part of my placement fee I will be provided with a medical insurance policy for the duration of my camp contract plus 15 days more in case I want to travel in Spain. Should I require insurance coverage outside of these dates for the grace period I agree to purchase this separately through GoCampSpain at my own cost. ***IMPORTANT NOTICE*** Pre-existing medical conditions are not possible with the CIEE insurance plan and it is a program requirement to secure additional insurance options for this benefit. Ask your GoCampSpain co-ordinator for more information on getting covered.
