    I thought so too until the Camp America twitter started retweeting people who'd been placed. I put Horse riding, Stable Management, Photography, Drama, Kayaking, Swimming & Trainable Lifeguard. I'm so excited!

    Good luck with getting placed!

    I'm waiting to be assigned an interviewer. Does anyone know how long this usually takes?

    Thanks

    Hey people

    Can i just warn you, please DON'T go to Kamp Kiwanis in NY!

    I know it's in NY and very tempting but i worked there last year and it was absolute hell. The staff were verbally abused by the boss (a lot of us had breakdowns and hated every second of it), we worked from 5:30am - 2am the next morning, we were guilt tripped into working on our days off, and it's far away from any shops/attractions etc so there weren't a lot of options for going out on days off.

    It was one of the worst summers of my life (and most of the staffs too, we were working illegal hours and no matter how hard we worked we got yelled out).

    My friend had a great summer in another camp however, so it depends a lot on your camp.

    I've been on review once, but after a skype chat with someone from the camp I didn't think it was a fit so I said no
    So annoying, hopefully another one comes along soon
