Well, why not have the adventure of a lifetime and apply yourself for one of the many summer camp jobs in America in 2015! From New York to California summer camps in America recruit literally thousands of domestic and international camp counselors each summer.
If you are a resident of America then the process is simple and you can just apply directly with a summer camp and negotiate your contract with them.
