    I believe with a letter from the US Embassy Ryan Air or EasyJet will allow you to fly back on a driving license.

    Not sure to be honest, I think thats the only other ID that is accepted. If you don't have one, I would recommend applying for a provisional one!

    You just need photographic ID to fly domestic UK flights anyway. I flew with an old-style railcard once! But drivers license's are fine - you certainly don't need a letter from the US embassy.

    i'm sure you will! They don't really not accept people.

    Before America I had experience working in a nursery in the after school club and working in a leisure centre as a gymnastics assistant teacher and a swimming assistant teacher - taught kids aged 2-8 years.

    It really doesn't matter how much experience you have had just make sure it comes across that you want to work with kids and you are willing to learn new things!

    I think it actually seems that way because they are more girls unplaced.. if you know what I mean. :p:
    But it probably is equal enough.

    Nope it really is. There are less US guys interested in working as camp counselors than girls! It is a lot harder to find good male counselors.
