Our Featured Humans

Chris Handley

"Camp has shown what's really important to me"

Anna Crisford

"Sure it's tough, exhausting and challenging, but that's what makes it so special and rewarding"

Rebecca Spijkerman

"During our last meeting before the kids arrived, my camp director read out a letter to all of us around the camp fire. The letter was from one of my previous campers begging me to be her councillor again and saying how much she missed me. It wasn't until that moment I realised what an impact I had on my campers' lives"

Toni Green

"At a bit of a cross roads as to whether my chosen career was the right one for me after all, I signed onto Camp America. I had such an epic time that I'm now totally hooked and going back for more!"

Toni Green Camp America

Alana Marsh

"Camp is such an important place in my life at the moment. The campers I work with have stolen my heart and are some of the most amazing people I have met"

Alana marsh Camp America

Eric Schuster

"It doesn't matter if you sink or swim because we're all in this together. So let loose, have fun and be a little crazy"

Eric Schuster Camp America

Kristy Hanks

"Camp made me realise my passion for working with children and was a major factor in my decision to become a primary school teacher"

Kristy Hanks Camp America

Courtney Wills

"Camp is something I wish I could experience on repeat. It is a place where you need to take every opportunity, as you will only regret the things you didn't do"

Courtney Wills Camp America

Luke McCallum

"I had the most enjoyable time working with the campers every week. It was amazing to see all the hard work the councillors put in and the impact it had on the children's lives"

Luke mcCallum Camp America

Ashleigh Geddes

"When I signed up to Camp America at the age of 25 I thought I was going to be "too old" to live the dream I had in High school. But it turned into the most amazing learning opportunity... it is NEVER too late to live your dreams"

Ashleigh Geddes Camp America

Rebekah Linton

"Camp America is out of this world, and truly an amazing life experience. I would recommend it to anyone in a heart beat"

Rebekah Linton.jpg

Richard Henderson

"I've been doing this for 3 years now and there's nothing like it. You can sit down and read these stories from people that have done it or you can step up and live the dream. Life is about moments. Don't wait for them. Create them. Camp will help you"

Richard Henderson.jpg

Sandra Perrott

"Camp brings out your inner child. It's the best time you will ever have"

Sandra Perrott Camp America

Sylvia Emery

"Honestly it's a nerve racking process and you have to wear your heart and passions out on your sleeve. It's extremely daunting but I have never had an experience as incredible as Camp. I didn't know I would find my home thousands of miles away from my house"

Sylvia Emery.jpg

Aimee Prendergast

"It's easier to go down a hill than up it, but the view is much better at the top"

Aimee Prendergast.Camp America

Maddison Millar

"Camp is a place where you can get away, experience the world, meet life long friends and a place to clear your mind and have a new perspective on life. The kids are your first priority and it is your job to make them happy, but what you don't realise is that they make you incredibly happy too"
