Testimonials & Experiences

"I was overwhelmed by the vast number of camp directors who had flown over to Britain to hire With so many camps, each catering with a different section of American society, to choose from, it's advisable to have an idea of what kind of camp you would like to be placed at before you arrive at the fair. As I am undertaking a degree in drama and theatre studies I decided that I would like to teach drama at camp. Each camp had its own stall at the fair, often displaying a poster listing available positions such as general councillor, drama specialist etc. By looking for camps that specified they were looking for a drama specialist, the experience became far less intimidating. Knowing what I wanted to do at camp, meant I was able to narrow my search down to a handful of camps that interested me, rather than enquiring about positions at the 300 or so camps which were recruiting at the fair."

"I had a lot of fun at the camp fair but I attended but I didn't get hired which was dissapointing. If you find yourself in this situation don't get disheartened though - you will still get the opportunity to get placed in the run up to summer."
