    Hi I have applied and had my application approved with AmeriCamp for this Summer.. Just wondering if anyone has any idea how long it will take for me to know whether I'll get the job. I've applied to be an activity counsellor, my application got approved on Friday and was just wondering sort of when the latest date people have heard from camps has been. Thanks!

    Hey, I am going with them this year There is no submit button, they just keep checking applications and then if you have made a good start they ring or text you to tell you what needs adding, but I think you would need to finish the form quite quick. I CANNOT wait for the summer!

    If you have any probs i would just email them.
