It might be hard to imagine, but even some of the most successful actors, actresses and singers attended camp themselves when they were children! Both Adam Sandler and Natalie Portman went to experience the wonderful world of camp and what it had to offer. From singing the traditional camp fire songs to winning Colour War, these celebrities have grown up and become amazing, talented adults because of camp and their counselors. It’s now your turn. We work with most of the camps shown below which means you could be working in the same area and staying in the same bunk as one of these amazing celebrities once did. So cool, right!?
Comedian and Actor Jonah Hill, famous for films like Wolf of Wall Street and Superbad, attended Indian Head Camp (Now called IHC)! Jonah Hill’s parents became camp sweethearts while working as part of the staff at IHC so obviously Jonah had to start the tradition and go there too. We can only imagine what a character Jonah Hill was at camp! Being one of our biggest camps, a lot of our applicants will be heading to IHC next summer.
The frontman of Maroon 5 and one of the judges for The Voice, Adam Levine attended one of our biggest Performing Arts, French Woods Camp. This camp specialises in Music, Theatre, Magic, Visual Arts and Sports. Zooey Deschanel also went to French Woods and it’s clear to see why with its amazing facilities. French Woods Camp attend most of our Job Fairs and we are incredibly proud to be able to send our applicants there each year.
The star of Star Wars and the face of Miss Dior has also attended camp! Natalie Portman went to Camp Stagedoor Manor close to New York. This camp is very similar to French Woods as it also specialises in all things Performing Arts! If you get hired at a Specialist Performing Arts camp, you will not be only brushing up on your own skills, but you could also be mixing with the next generation of Natalie Portmans!
Adam Sandler attended the dedicated Jewish Camp URJ Eisner Camp as a child. After his camp years, Adam went to star in films like 50 First Dates and Grown Ups. With Adam being the joker he is, you can just imagine the fun and laughter he and his fellow campers had which you can have too during our epic summer adventure!
