    vinylandtrinkets, I'm not interested (my wife might change the locks if I leave home for too long:giggle:), but it sounds like you had a good time - I've done similar things in my past & I have to say they're worth doing, as each one is an experience. Even the jobs that were not nice still added some value to my life.

    PM me the details please!

    I would like some info please, not 18 until may but think this could still be what i need.

    was lookin at this l;ast week. pretty much u work for 2 months and then have another 2 months to travel america. so pretty much with the money u get from camp u just about break even for trravelling there. Then u have to pay to go around US ofcourse but u get 10% off trek america.

    personally if your wanting to travel around america for a gap year might be worth doing. for a 42 day tour of US with a tour guide all ravel and acocmodation you see most things it works out at about 1500 british pounds. not too bad. but i think im gunna inter rail it in europe cant got wrong for around 300 quid unlimited rail fare to most european countries for a month.

    yeah the camp america programme is just for 9 weeks and you can travel all across the USA afterwards. 2 of my friends went and they cant stop talking about it. They just about broke even aswell but said they gained a lot of friends and massive experience aswell. They got to travel for about 4 weeks after the programme finished so they got to see a lot of america and even stayed with friends they met at camp so they got free accomodation.

    Personally i just wanna try it even tho i know its gonna be really hard. i will go to the London fair and see if i get placed. I dont wanna get any Mickey Mouse job and it should be fun.
