Ingo wrote to you about this on 01/14/02 and on 03/01/02. His answers are absolutely
correct. Perhaps there something about the answers that you do not understand.

If you will **not be paid,** you may come as a visitor for pleasure, informally known
as "tourist." Your status will be "WT" or "B-2."

See http://travel.state.gov/visa;visitors.html. If you are from a visa waiver country
(listed at the end of the page), you do not need a visa. You just get on the plane
and fill out the visa waiver form. You will get a light green I-94, and your status
will be designated as "WT" (for waiver-tourist). You will be given a 90-day stay in
the U.S. This stay may not be extended or changed within the U.S.

If you need a visa, you may apply for a B-2 visa at a U.S. consular post in your
home country.

[By the way, it will not be a "B-2 prospective student" visa. That phrase refers to a
prospective F-1 or J-1 student, which means a person who will start a full-time
academic program leading to a degree or other certificate of completion. A one-week
summer camp does not qualify for a "student" visa as the U.S. defines it.]

With a B-2 visa, you will get a white I-94 when you enter the U.S., and you will be
given a 6 month stay, usually.

If you **will be paid** for your services in the summer camp, you must get a J-1
visa. This could be in the J-1 summer/work category or the J-1 camp counselor
category. These are not considered "student" visas at all. People who are students in
the home country may apply for them, but they are not student visas.
