Rob - Humans of Camp America

Posted: 15th of August 2018 by

"Camp has given me some of the more obvious camp skills like tying knots, building a fire and plenty of skills in sports such as American Football, Soccer, Archery, Swimming, Boating and Tennis. But camp has given me more important life skills like patience, quick thinking, the ability to be more creative, the ability to be able to adapt and how to be the best version of me!

In terms of my CV, camp is a huge positive influence. After going to camp, I am able to say that I am trustworthy due to looking after and supporting hundreds of children, I am able to say that I can work in high pressure environments due to the quite often hectic vibe at camp. I have also had photographs published worldwide now due to camp and Camp America, so now my photography portfolio has been enhanced massively too!

If you are unsure of what your career will be or which road you will go down, I highly recommend going to camp. Camp is able to pull you out of the common path of just going through Uni and straight into work that might not necessarily relate to what you studied. It brings you away from that life and takes you into a new life where anything you want to achieve could be a possibility. There will be hundreds of counselors that are also unsure of their journey that you can talk to and get ideas from. Plus, in some cases, camp could become your career!"
