Registration Period For Working In A Summer Camp In America Drawing To A Close

Wild Packs are available to help UK based people register and apply for positions at American Summer Camps

With the majority of American Summer Camps opening towards the end of June, the deadline for registration to work at them is fast approaching. Whilst Wild Packs - the leading name for helping those in the UK who want to work at an American Summer Camp - accept applications until April, the advice is to register as soon as possible. Registering and applying as early as one can shows the dedication and time management skills Camps across America are looking for and expect in staff.

With over 12,000 Summer Camps running in America every year, the staffing requirements are high. The official American Camp Association reports that some 20% of all Camp staff come from outside the United States, and this is a percentage they are keen to see being expanded. The view from America is that non-US staff are vital to the experience, as they allow the children attending to experience the outlook and perspective of different cultures and nationalities. Due to the strong historical links between the nations, the US has always had a preference for staff from the UK to meet this important element.

This exposure is mutually beneficial. For those who wish to pursue a career in teaching, or in a supervisory or caring role, gaining employment at an American Summer Camp is a boost for any CV. With the high standard of expectation in place for those chosen to work as counsellors being met, this valuable experience will be of long term benefit to those who qualify for and undertake a position. This benefit is on top of the fact that a counsellor at a Camps is a paid position, with the money earned usually at least covering the costs of the experience.

Whereas Wild Packs hold open registrations through April, leaving registration this late is really only intended for those who could not do so earlier due to unforeseen circumstances. Those who have given consideration to working at an American Summer Camp and are determined to do so should ensure that they commence the process of registration during March at the latest. This gives applicants a suitable amount of time to meet the US Embassy Requirements for a visa, as well as ensure all relevant medical and background checks are undertaken. Wild Packs provide full assistance and support for all requirements that need to be met by applicants.

Wild Packs are committed to delivering the best service possible in finding a position within a Summer Camp in America. They offer the flexibility of allowing registered members to either arrange their own flights to the United States or to take advantage of the special rates they have negotiated. This is an important factor, as some companies offering the same service build expensive, premium rate flight costs into their fees. At Wild Packs the focus is on ensuring that only the best and most determined of applicants finds success in getting work at an American Summer Camp, with low and transparent costs being in place to assist.

People in the UK who are committed to the experience of working at an American Summer Camp are encouraged to register with Wild Packs as soon as possible. The Wild Packs team can be contacted via their website or via the telephone.
