If you’re getting ready to head off to Camp USA for the first time. Here’s what to expect over the next 3 months…
At your first week of camp, you’ll have your orientation and induction. This is the week that you get to know everyone before the campers arrive. You’ll meet all these other people just like you who have decided to go on this incredible journey too and with some of them, you’ll become friends for life. The bond made by camp is a very special one. You work with these people and spend your days off with these people and yet at the end of the summer, you feel you haven’t spent enough time with them.
Archery, windsurfing, photography, horseback riding, music, orienteering, cooking and daily life skills. The list goes on and on and, you’ve got the whole summer to perfect them all. You will learn to become very independent, minding other people’s children will do this to you… your parents won’t know what hit them when you’re home.
All camps are different but in a nutshell, your day is spent doing various activities; colour runs, arts and crafts, swimming, boating, go-karts, drama, adventures, climbing walls, zip-lines, archery and tonnes more. And, you’ll get a serious tan working outdoors all day!
Being a camp counsellor allows you to be a positive influence and role model, as well as give guidance for a child’s future. You may see qualities in them that no one else sees. You will learn a lot more about yourself as a leader.
You’ve had the summer of a lifetime already at camp and now you have a whole month to explore the U.S! The only question is where are you gonna visit? San Fran? L.A? Chicago? The list is endless, it’s a tough decision but a great one to have to make!
Sounds like you’re in for the summer of a lifetime, right?…
