Ten reasons why Summer Camp in America should your 2021 goal!

  1. Your CV will impress! Employers love to hear about camp! For many people its a completely foreign concept; they’ll want to try and understand everything that you did. It shows that you’re adventurous, up for a challenge and flexible.
  2. You will get more experience working with kids than you know what to do with! If you’re interested in working with children in the future, whether that’s as a teacher, coach, therapist etc then camp will give you a huge amount of insight into what it’s like to work with children on a full time basis.
  3. You will make friends from all over the globe. You’d have probably never worked with such a diverse group of people before- you’ll have friends from lots of so many different states and country.
  4. With that in mind- the travel opportunities are amazing! Under the J1 visa you’re allowed to travel the States for up to 30 days before and after your contract. Lots of camp counselor will travel the States together, especially after camp. Get together with them during camp and make some plans. Our medical insurance will cover you too- so there’s no need to worry about that!
  5. You’ll get a great tan. Who can beat that healthy glow you get when you’ve been working in the beautiful American sunshine for 10 weeks? Camp is a very outdoorsy environment and although sunbathing is not allowed you will get some great colour from all that running around in the sun!
  6. You’ll work with some super talented people. The leadership team at camp will be made up of people who have made camp into their profession- during the year they might work for camp or work as teachers or in the camp industry but they come back to camp every summer so that they can help kids and staff (you!) have the best summer possible. Use them as a resource, they will have a lot of camp and childcare experience.
  7. You will be able to try out some super cool activities. From sailing to ceramics, horse riding to waterskiing. Never been ziplining? Do it at camp? Want to try out archery? Go ahead! Camp will encourage you to get out of your comfort zone- to try new things and new activities.
  8. Camp is a great place to gain more leadership experience, personal growth and get more self confidence. You will challenge yourself every day and although it might be tough at the time- you will reap the reward afterwards.
  9. You can explore the local area on your days off! There are so many cool places to see. It could be that you explore a town or city or climb a mountain. Our advice would be to make the most of your time as possible.
  10. Camp counselors get paid to have fun! Your friends in Tesco earn their money by stacking shelves, you’ll get yours by playing with kids, teaching them and making friends along the way. This will be a summer to remember, forever!
