Heading Stateside for the summer needs some planning so you can have the best summer of your life. We’ve put together our top tips to help anyone getting ready for Summer Camp…
There are a few boring things that you’ll need to sort before you head out to America. Don’t worry though, it’ll all be worth it! Make sure your profile is 100% complete and all your documents are verified. Make sure you have a good read through your insurance section and read the guidebook. This is all absolutely key information that you’ll need to go through in detail.
When you pack your bags, make sure you follow our guide so you have everything you need. You’ll need plenty of Summer Camp essentials: plenty of shorts, t-shirts, and vest tops too. If you want to go extra, get a head torch for the dark shower block trips! You’ll also want a stash of your favourite British snacks and some super comfortable shoes. If you forget to pack anything, don’t worry, because you’ll be able to pick things up from Walmart.
There’s no NHS out in America, so getting a full-body MOT before you go to camp is a good idea. Whether you need a quick check-up or need to make sure you have enough medication for the summer, book a doctors appointment! A trip to the dentist might be a good idea too.
When you’re getting ready for Summer Camp, you’ll need to think about your finances. Make sure you know what direct debits and payments will be coming out of your bank while you’re in America. It’s also incredibly important to let your bank know you’ll be in the USA so they don’t block your account.
