Nerves can often be a big reason for not taking part in a cultural exchange program such as AmeriCamp. So, we’re here to tell you that we understand but we also know everything is going to be fine.
Here’s 5 reasons why flying off to AmeriCamp this summer is an absolute must, and not scary at all!
1. You’re not alone
Everyone is in the same boat when doing AmeriCamp, and you’re all there to support each other. Whether you’re an introvert or an extrovert, this US experience is an essential.
You’ve no doubt met many people in your life who have changed it in some way, and you’ll want to keep these experiences going.
The people you meet at camp will have completely different life experiences to you and it getting to know and understand these people will enrich your own life!
The more you travel and the more people you know, the more well-rounded you become. Don’t forget, friends you make at camp are friends for life!
2. Changing your scenery
It’s incredibly important for anyone, in particular those leaving sixth form or thinking of going to university, to gain new experiences. What better way to do this than by changing where you are and have been for so long?
There is so much to see and do in the USA, and it’s easy to put it hold for a summer job at Tesco, but is it worth it? Gain those new experiences, grow as a person and challenge yourself.
AmeriCamp is the perfect way to get a change of scenery, placing you at the best summer camps in the USA, you’ll be sure to be surrounded by beautiful landscape with loads of friendly faces!
3. There’s never a dull moment!
Finding yourself in a repetitive cycle of dealing with the British weather, exams, or whatever else It is? You deserve to spend your summer somewhere better than the UK, so let’s clear your mind in a secluded bit of American wilderness!
It’s not all work, you will get your days off at camp to wander off and take in the local hidden treasures. Most importantly, once you’ve earned your money and said goodbye to the kids at camp, you can travel for up to 30 days!
Go see what you want to see with total freedom, live your own American dream. That’s the beauty of our programme, you get so many new experiences and an extra holiday on top!
4. Utilise your skills
It’s often easy to sell ourselves short, but we all have talents and we need a way to explore them! For those of you who aren’t too sure what your talents are, you need a way to find out.
For those of you who know what you love to do, wouldn’t it be amazing to practice this in the US and pass on your knowledge?
Heading off on this adventure gives you this opportunity, and allows you to develop your skills in a relaxed and fun environment.
5. You’ll never experience anything like it
You really won’t. The only way to experience something like AmeriCamp is by doing AmeriCamp!
