    Just thought I would start a thread for anyone planning on heading to camp in 2017.
    Have any other eager beavers already started the application process for 2017?

    Sorry for the late reply, completely forgot I'd put this up! I have a Skype interview with a camp that are interested in me in California so that's cool! Have you got any further?

    Hello just wondering is it really necessary to attend a camp fair to get placed, or can I just go through with my application only and still more than likely get placed?

    hey, I would say it isn't necessary to attend a camp fair. I've had two camps email me asking for a Skype interview and I haven't attended any camp fairs!

    Hey, I think it depends on each camp. Each camp has a different start date but I think it's usually between start-mid June.

    I've been travelling for years, and I tell you these Camps are a waste of money. Be independent, go on your own. Don't do an expensive package version. Camp Thailand, for example, may be good fun, but the TEFL course is rubbish, not worth the money. They hold it in a place called Surin. Take it from me, that isn't a place you want to be! Go to Chiang Mai in the north or the islands in the south.

    Hi there!

    I've been really wanting to do Americamp for a couple of years now, unfortunately last year I couldn't go as it would have meant missing my graduation. I have a couple of questions i was wondering if you'd be able to hep me a little with?
    -Does it matter that I am no longer a uni student? I'm now a 21y/o graduate

    -I can't choose between Camp America and Camp Canada and I can't find anything useful to push me in one direction more than the other?!
    -Finally- I've never done anything like this and I have absolutely no idea where to start.. absolutely any help you can give would be useful! I don't even know which group to go with, but I was thinking Americamp.

    Hi! Well, I'll be 21 when I go and will have just finished my uni course. I know that Americamp accept non-students but I'm not sure about other companies.

    I can't say I know much about Camp Canada, but I guess it really comes down to whether you would prefer to visit America or Canada!

    It's the first time I've done anything like this so don't worry! First I would say to just think about any skills you might have: any sports you enjoy or even anything like crafts or performing arts as this is one of the main things they look for! I'm interested in working with special needs children/adults in the future therefore my placement at a special needs camp is ideal!

    I also know that Americamp is supposed to be the cheapest for applying and you also receive the largest salary without them taking a huge chunk from you.

    Let me know if you have anymore questions!
