Online PR News – 07-January-2013 – Liverpool, Merseyside – With the summer of 2012 something of a washout, it's no surprise that more and more teenagers are looking to spend a summer overseas. 2013 is no exception, with Camp America and Camp Leaders running camps and offering summer jobs abroad to hundreds of students from the UK on their summer camps in the USA.
From the traditional outdoor pursuits expected at summer camps - football, mountain biking, horse riding, water sports and such - the concept of summer camps has evolved over the years and now offers much more. There really is something for everyone, with camps focusing on performing arts, maths and computers to name but a few!
Many young people attend a summer camps after finishing school and A-Level exams as a great way to see more of the world and gain some independence before university. What then happens is they have such a wonderful time that they decide to return year on year and progress up the camp leadership scale, taking on more responsibility and new roles within the camp hierarchy. Most first timers will start their camp career as a counselor.
After counselor duties are fulfilled and the camp attendees have returned to their families, a large number of overseas counselors take the opportunity to spend more free time with their new found friends and explore the surroundings of the awesome United States. Friendships are often forged that live on for life through attending a summer camp.
Camp America is a name synonymous with summer camps. Running since 1969, it operates over 1000 camps each and every summer. For a first-time camper the company offers security and reassurance associated with a long running successful organisation. It also boasts a convenient and quick registration process, with a handy payment plan broken into bite size chunks rather than a lump sum.
For the extremely organised, Camp Leaders offer a generous discount scheme, cutting up to £200 off the standard fees. Highly affordable and with a wealth of industry experience, Camp Leaders have something for everyone. If the idea of making a young person's summer special appeals, but the idea of being outgoing and 'on duty' 24/7 is a bit much, there are office based and back-of-house roles available.
The hours are long, it can be physically and mentally demanding at times, and there are undoubtedly people who will decide it's not for them. However, those who do take the leap and board that plane at the beginning of summer return after the nine or so weeks happy and healthy, having grown as an individual and counting down the days until they can go on another adventure again the next year!
Camp Leaders are based in the United Kingdom and offer summer camp jobs in America, they can provide various positions at a range of different summer camps in the US.
