Where the Camp America Experience Can Take You

Where the Camp America Experience Can Take You

Where the Camp America experience can take you – how it contributes to employability and personal development.

Some people may have the misconception that working at a summer camp in America is just a gap year thing and that it wouldn’t contribute to someone’s future. Boy are they wrong!

Camp America can not only develop you as a person but it can also contribute greatly towards your employability once you head back home. Working at camp is an internationally recognised program with Camp America alone sending over 10,000 people each year. You can guarantee you will know someone who knows someone that worked at a summer camp in America.

Working at a summer camp might just be one of the hardest but most rewarding jobs you will ever have. You will be pushed to your limits both mentally and physically. But camp is the kind of job you just keep going even if you don’t think you have anything left in you. This is because you have to consider your kids before yourself. It is also the kind of job that you get out of it as much as you put in.

Camp America for me was a huge milestone in my own personal development like it is for many others. You are put in situations where you might not be comfortable or familiar with but camp gives you a safe and friendly environment to find out who you are as a person and to step out of your comfort zone. Before camp I never would have imagined myself getting up in front of hundreds of people and singing the New Zealand national anthem by myself. But working at camp gives you the confidence to do things you never thought you would be able to do.

Because working at summer camps is such a well know program almost all employers will recognise this. It makes for a unique addition to your CV and gives you skills to handle all kinds of situations. No matter which field of work you are in the experience you have at camp can apply to everything. In my most recent interview for the job I have now, we spent over half the time talking about camp and all their questions I could relate back to situations I was in at camp.

The Camp America experience might even take you on a path that you never expected. People make careers out of working for summer camps heading back every single year or even permanently migrating to the US. The possibilities are endless as long as you are open to the opportunity.
