    How was asia? Did you go alone?[/QUOTE]

    Asia was absolutely phenomenal. The best decision ive ever made. Yes, I travelled alone loved every second! Have you already started your application? Do you know which company you're going to go with?

    Did you feel safe going alone? It looks amazing over there. Basically i really want to do some travelling at the moment but not sure where to go - either camp america or backpacking somewhere. I'm going to save as much money as possible and then see which one i can afford. Definitely planning on doing america in 2015 if i cant afford it next year. I think i'll use americamp though. What about you?

    Not at all! Basically a casual interview in Starbucks, to go through my application together to make sure I hadn't forgotten anything! And then she asked me.. When have I been in a stressful situation. When have I shown empathy. How much childcare experience, and when have i face a difficult experience working with children! i got the phone all yesterday to say I've been accepted onto the programme! Woooo hoop

    Is it just the deposit you need at that point? Also, how does it fit around with college/uni, like when do you start and finish? If im going anywhere then it'll be college and they can be pains in the asses with interview times, they always leave them late in the year. Well my college does anyway

    I had my interview at 7pm because I work full time at the mo... So it's flexible! But you need to have paid everything February I think. Just call them if you want to talk about the payment plan.. It's £49, £200, and then £300. They'll be willing to help you plan how you'll pay it

    I have decided on camp america I think! I have started an application video, I don't think you have to do one but I thought I would due to my lack of skills! Lol, also the applications open on August 1st so not long! Anyone else going for camp america?

My skills are Dancing at a high nearly qualified to teach level, Netball and arts and crafts I am scared that this wont be enough. What are your skills? and does anyone have any advice on camp america ?

    I think you will be fine with your skills! If your almost qualified at something then they will definitely be interested! Apply through camp leaders and they will help you decide what your top skills will be best to advertise to camp directors ... My top skills are 1. Qualifed Lifeguard 2. Outdoor adventure 3. Textiles/fashion ... I also have yoga, surf life saving, language on my skills
