What is a Camp Fair?
The AmeriCamp Camp Fair is your golden ticket to get #plACed and secure your dream Summer job; whether you’re a soccer coach, swimming instructor or tennis enthusiast, a flock of Camp Directors will be in attendance scouting staff for the Summer.
An AmeriCamp Camp Fair is an ideal opportunity to seal your spot stateside, whilst also having an awesome time meeting our incredible staff and tucking into a McDonald’s, courtesy of the AmeriCamp team – embrace the perfect way to whet your appetite ahead of departing for Camp; the AmeriCamp Camp Fair also allows you and your parents to ask any questions that you may have about the program.
What Kind of Questions Should I Ask At The Fair?
To get the most out of your Camp Fair experience, we strongly recommend that all applicants ask as any questions as possible when talking with Camp Directors; this will help when deciding which Camp will suit you most! Remember, there’s no such thing as a silly question! Our staff and the Camp Directors are there to guide you to a perfect placement.
Here are some suggestions as to what could be useful to ask any Camp Directors:
- What are the ratio of staff to Campers?
- What is the schedule that is in place at the Camp; does this change often?
- What is the typical day at the Camp?
- Outline your interests to the Camp Director and consider whether the Camp matches your interests.
- Ask the Camp Director what applicants should not expect from their Camp; nobody likes an unexpected surprise!
Camp Directors will be more than happy to answer any questions that you may have – don’t be rushed into a knee-jerk decision; this is a fun day and nobody wants you to feel pressured when deciding which Camp to attend!
