I chose Camp America over other organisations because the resources were so easy to navigate.

I am hooked on camp life and I don’t see myself giving it up anytime soon. ...

I decided to do Camp America after I graduated from university. I was still working in the same job I had had throughout high school and it was not going anywhere. My family was pushing me to start a career, a “real job”, and I did not feel ready for that. I felt too young to join the rat race, working a 9-5 office job is my worst nightmare! I wanted to do something different, fun and exciting. I heard about Camp America through several friends ...

In the videos of people at camp you see everyone being daring, outgoing and crazy. During the application process I found this somewhat intimidating. All these people appeared to be extroverted, sporty and like they loved being in front of large groups of people.
