6 Reasons Why Summer at Camp America is Better than Staying Home

Why endure the coldest months of the year, while Americans are living it up in the hot summer fun? During Camp America, you can be wakeboarding, canoeing, hiking, biking – all the great things that you look forward to doing all year round while you’re waiting for the rain to stop. 

There are so many activities no matter which Camp America placement that you choose, and after your summer of camp pursuits, you essentially get to skip over the roughest times of the year back home and come back to prepare for nicer weather to return once again. Its almost like you’re getting one over on mother Nature!

Get Paid

Okay, so you can get a job anywhere. We know that. But this isn't just a job! Where else will you get the opportunity to take part in an entire summer filled with every awesome outdoor activity you can name, travel to another country with all your food and accommodation covered, hang out with a group of awesome and like-minded people – and get paid? 
Nowhere else, and that’s what makes the Camp America experience so priceless! 

Not only will you have a blast and learn skills that will stay with you for the rest of your life, but also you’ll come home with more international friends than when you left, and that’s a something you won't get anywhere else. Oh and did I mention how cool your CV will look having "Camp America" on it?

Try Something New

So not only will you essentially get to have two summers in one year, but you will get to hang out with a totally new group of people, lead children in a huge variety of great activities, and learn how to adapt quickly to completely unfamiliar surroundings. If Camp America is interesting to you, this is the perfect time to go, because you never know what the next year in your life may have planned for you, and if you decide to wait until then to take the leap, your circumstances may change in a way that does not allow you to experience this opportunity. 

The best thing to do is simply jump in and apply to be a camp counselor with Camp America while you have the chance, and hopefully you’ll soon be ready to jet off to one of the placements that are preparing to host you at a US Summer Camp!

No matter the day in question, if you’re spending it at camp with Camp America you can be sure that you’re going to be doing something fun and active until you are out of breath for at least some chunk of your day. No sitting at home wondering what to do all weekend. Each day of your summer will present multiple challenges, and will likely become a fantastic period of growth for you! 

6 Reasons Why Summer at Camp America is Better than Staying Home

All of the fantastic activities, great food, sleeping quarters, excited campers and peers are there, just waiting for you to arrive and begin the start of your amazing summer.

Get a Change of Scenery

Not only will your experience at Camp America 2014 get you out of your chair and away from the television, email and Facebook – it gets you completely out of the country altogether! Without your comforts of home around, you will be placed in a completely different routine, around a totally new group of people, and most of the time you will be active and outdoors. These are all great reasons to be a camp counselor, because changing things up once in a while keeps life interesting, and will give you multiple opportunities to fall in love with new experiences that you might decide to make a larger part of your routine when you return home.
