Since reading the Babysitters Club novels when I was 12-years-old I’ve wanted to be a Counsellor at an American Summer Camp. In 2010, with my Uni degree in a period of transition I finally made this dream a reality when I applied through Camp Counsellors USA (CCUSA) to become one!
But when I was researching for information about Summer Camps, the good and bad, companies, or blog posts about peoples experiences, I found that there was nothing but shining reviews or testimonials about how counsellors wanted to come back every summer. I wanted something REAL something which told me “Hey, you may find one day to be great, but after living with the same kids for 10-weeks you may want to kill them all!” but I would have settled for something that said, “RUN AWAY NOW!!!!”
Over the next few weeks I’m going to be posting about my camp experiences – the good, bad and ugly – as well as information for Australians who want to take the plunge and head to the US for what is marked to be “the best summer of your life!”
