Wild Packs Reviews

What a summer!

Wild Packs are a great company! They were super helpful every step of the way, from finding me a camp, to giving me any additional information I needed while I was in America. I couldn't fault Wild Packs if I tried. :)

Wild packs

If you want to go to camp in America, you HAVE to go through wild packs!! I couldn’t have asked for a more supportive and helpful agency to assist me through everything. They were so incedibly helpful and reassure you that you’ve done everything correct! I honestly couldn’t recommend wildpacks enough!!

Changed my outlook on life!

In 2016 I went through Wildpacks to attend a summer camp and my friend and I chose them because their benefits were so much better than Camp America and they helped us every step of the way!
This decision I made was the BEST as I had the greatest summer of my life and have made friends for life who I now visit across the U.K and World!
All I can say is if your considering going just do it! As I’ve learnt you don’t get a second time round in life so make this one worth living !!

Best summer of my life!!

Spent my first camp summer at Camp Echo NY and Wildpacks couldn’t have been any better!!! From minute one I was treated as family, they were there to answer every “silly” question I had from the type of flip flops to take to the whole Visa process. Made friends for life at Echo and Wildpacks, will definitely be coming back!

Amazing support

My first summer working at Camp Menominee and I forgot a few things but the staff at Wild Packs couldn't have been more helpful. Between Wild Packs and the staff on camp I had support from beginning to end and a visit on camp to check how I was doing.
I couldn't recommend them enough and if I go back to camp I will definitely go though Wild Packs.

Never want to stop

Getting ready for my 5th summer at caribou (ME) working away from home can be a daunting experience for anyone and wildpacks not only now make it easy but prepare you well for going over there. Always there to help no matter what it is that is worrying you.
Recommend wildpacks to anyone that is thinking of a summer in the states

Memories To Last A Lifetime

I cannot recommend WildPacks enough! Within a week of applying I had gotten a place at camp.
With every step of the application process, I was guided to optimise my chance of acceptance to a camp in America and ensure I had all the legal paperwork in place to apply for my visa.
Nothing was too much trouble and every member of staff I spoke with and emailed was very friendly and helpful. Even once I was at camp and had a few questions about my visa restrictions or the medical insurance provided, they answered all my questions or directed me to someone who could help me or a website where I could find the information I needed.
They took all the stress away from the daunting process.
I went to a Ranch Camp in New Jersey and made so many amazing memories. I got to horse ride as part of my role as a Ranch Counsellor, as well as enjoying the other activities the camp had to offer in my free time such as paddle boarding, kayaking and archery to name a few.
Thank you WildPacks!

Best thing I ever did!

An absolutely amazing experience I’ll never forget! Wild packs made my American summer camp job dream come true and helped me organise everything whilst I was living in Vietnam! I arrived easily into the USA and got to the camp. I recommend wild packs to everyone who asks how I got to work at camp!

Summer at camp wekeela

Wild packs were an absolute godsend. Wild packs helped every step of the way and do the hard work (sorting visa paper work) out for you. They give advice on your application before it’s sent off to the camps which is a great help and gives piece of mind. I also found that wild packs charged a fraction of the price of those like “camp America” and you got a much more personal experience feeling like you could call them whenever needed. I would definitely go through wild packs again!!

A summer that I’ll never forget

The summer of 2014 I was placed at Camp Echo in upstate New York. I had just finished my first year of University and fancied a challenge. The entire pre camp process was made stress free, including what to pack. Once at camp I was placed with a bunk of Freshman girls. Waking up to their reality every day made me wish that I had that at that age. A summer home that’s full of fun and happiness. From the very start Wild Packs gave me the insights I needed to reassure me it was “for me” and through their YouTube channel I quickly learnt that camp can be the most rewarding job ever! Being paid to have fun is brilliant! Although I was part of the recording studio team, camp still offered chances to step outside of “work” and enjoy camp for what it was. During college week and Olympics week especially. Wild Packs were always open to last minute questions and giving advice, very reassuring for any concerns and helpful along the entire summer.

I would highly recommend for anybody to take the challenge and go to a summer camp, because it’s the hardest yet most enjoyable job you could ever have, think of it less as a job, more of a chance to release your inner child with hundreds of others. Thanks to Wild Packs, my journey will forever be cemented in my memories and the best summer I could have wished for. It’s coming up to 4 years since I went and I still find myself saying “this one time at summer camp”. Thank you Wild Packs for an incredible summer.

Theres a reason I keep going back, its easy!

The last three summers I've worked in a summer camp in PA and every year I've gone with the help of Wildpacks!
They offer wonderful service and everyone is so helpful and willing that I always recommend them to everyone who asks me anything about camp!
The whole process is made easy and you really feel listened to!

Best two summers of my life

I had the privilege of spending two summers at Camp Echo, New York, and they were the best two summers of my life. I made some of my best friends and had an incredible time.
I went through Wild Packs and they couldn't have been more helpful. They were with me every step of the way and always responded to emails and phone calls. I couldn't have asked for a better company to go through.
I tell all my friends and pretty much any one who will listen that they should spend a summer at Camp if they can, it's one of the best things I ever did and if I could go back every summer forever I would!

Best summer yet

I decided to apply for camp very last minute a few years ago. Wild packs were incredibly helpful and kept in touch with me every step of the way. They did everything they could to get me a place so last minute. They helped ease my nerves about the entire process. I have never made a better decision than to go to camp. It was the best experience of my life! From kayaking daily to campfires and the most incredible wildlife (as a zoology student, I was particularly thrilled to look up from my kayak and see eagles flying over head). Unfortunately I haven’t been able to return to camp but I will never forget that summer. I would recommend it to EVERYONE!

Amazing summer experience

I've had Wildpacks as my agency for two summer's now, and getting ready for my third summer. I've been at camp Chipinaw in new york working on costumes in the theatre department. Wildpacks were really helpful during the initial application process, giving detailed feedback on my application to ensure I had the best chance at getting placed. After being placed they were very helpful with the visa process, so I knew what was going on and what to do on the day, and made sure to call the day before to make sure I was all sorted. I've had two amazing summer's at camp, with many more to come, and would 100% recommend Wildpacks as an agency!

Wild packs were amazing the whole way through my camp experience. The website is easy to navigate and there’s all the info you need on there, but easy to contact the team if you can’t find the answer you’re looking for. I used wild packs the first time going to America and the team helped me through my application every step of the way, replying to emails quickly and even giving me a quick call now and then to check in. I was placed at Camp Wahnee, CT as arts and craft staff, i was even told what to expect throughout my journey, and advised which sites to look on for flights and accommodation too. The American team even visited camp during the summer to check in and ask how I was finding everything. I would definitely recommend wild packs to anyone considering working at a summer camp - cheesy, but you’ll have the best summer ever!!

Fantastic summer!

I went to Camp Echo (NY) in the summer of 2017, as an Arts and Crafts Counselor, and had a wonderful time! I loved it! I had done the trip through Wild Packs, who are absolutely amazing! The help and assistance they give you is second to none, and I certainly appreciated all their support and guidance. They made the whole thing as easy as possible. Thank you Wild Packs! And here's to another summer at the brilliant Camp Echo!

2 Amazing Summers and I can’t wait for my 3rd!

Wild Packs are absolutely amazing! From my first telephone interview, finding me a wonderful camp, helping me with my visa and all my other paper work, and all of their constant support and guidance throughout the process - the Wild Packs team are truly amazing! In August I returned from my 2nd summer working at Camp Lokanda as Ceramics Counsellor. These have been the most wonderful summers of my life and I cannot wait to return for my 3rd summer as a Group Leader!! Without Wild Packs I wouldn’t have had so many wonderful experiences both at camp and through travelling so I really can’t thank the Wild Packs team enough!!
