There are many summer camps all over the world for you to work at this summer, but why is the USA the best place for summer camps? We might be biased, but there are hundreds of reasons as to why the USA is the best place to spend your summer camp experience from the invaluable working abroad experience to the 30 days of travel. In this blog, we will be talking about why you should spend your summer in a USA Summer Camp.
In addition to working at one of our Summer Camps, you get a whopping 30 days to travel around the US. (You don’t get that opportunity back in the UK!) America has 50 states for you to explore after camp. It’s up to you where you decide to go! Whether you go to visit the Big Apple or catch rays on Venice Beach, the opportunities are endless. Travel around America with the friends you make from camp or join a guided tour with companies such as Contiki. Spend your summer working hard to play HARDER!
Gaining work experience abroad will not only change you for the better, but will also look amazing on your CV. Working at a camp in America means you will be introduced to a new culture, work environment and a variety of people from all over the world. Employers will love to see that you took your own initiative to work in a different country and have gained experience working in new, different surroundings! When it you go for interviews, employers love to ask many questions in relation to your experience working abroad.
There are many different types of Summer Camps. A Traditional private Camp is based on tradition, experiences and camps that American families continue to send the generations too. There are also have traditional Jewish Camps and Christian Camps which adapt to the religious views and needs of staff and children. There are amazing Special Needs Camps, which vary from children to adults who require additional needs. This is an incredible experience that has rewards like no other and will give you a rewarding summer.
We also work closely with Specialist Camps that may focus more on Performing Arts and Music, or Soccer, Horse Riding and so on. There are Girl Scouts Camps, which are an incredible place for girls to learn leadership, develop their skills and explore their potential. Finally, there are Underprivileged Camps. These camps are often funded by the state, or by donors. It’s for children who ordinarily can’t afford to go to summer camp, but deserve the opportunity to experience camp. Overall, there’s a camp perfect for everyone in America!
American camps use international staffing agencies for staff, like USA Summer Camp. It’s an integral part of camp, mixing American children with the different cultures these Camp Counselors bring. It adds to the learning experience and it’s an incredible addition to the children’s lives, being taught for the summer by internationals, hearing different accents and telling stories from all over the world. It’s a valuable asset that parents love! There is no place like a US Summer Camp. And it’s the history, tradition and facilities that add to that buzz.
A typical day at camp can involve Sailing on the lake, Kayaking, Horse Riding, Basketball or Crafts. In between bites of your lunch you can be having a sing off with the table beside you before getting stuck into Soccer, Cycling, Computing or High ropes. After dinner activities include watching shows, discos, talent shows or capture the flag. As the James Bond theme tune stated – “Nobody does it better”.
We’re out of breath thinking about it. And let’s not forget the weather is beautiful! All in all, there are amazing summer camps worldwide, but nobody does it quite as well as the Americans. USA is the place to go for incredible summer camps.
