Having worked at Summer Camp in the past I learnt some useful information which may be of help to you. If you are a returner or a first-timer you might find these helpful so I've popped them in a blog post for you. If you have any of your own please feel free to let me know and leave them in the comments of the blog post as well!
I visited London last week from 11th to 14th October to visit my friend Jade and watch Michael McIntyre's Big World Tour show in the O2. I travelled to London Paddington on Thursday morning by train and got there early afternoon. We stayed in a hotel near Lancaster Gate and Kensington Gardens / Hyde Park and had a lovely stay.
Last week we had a Cardiff Disney meet-up with the hashtag #cardiffdoesdisney. It was a lovely day and I’m so grateful of Lucy organising (@lucysroomtoys) it. It was a chance for everyone to meet up and visit the Disney Store before a picnic and more shopping! It was such a lovely day and it was nice to meet everyone. The cast members at the Disney Store Cardiff were absolutely amazing and made our day magical!
Last week I was asked to visit Ysgol Greenhill School to talk at their Lower School Awards Evening. The purpose of my visit was to speak about my experience with the Duke of Edinburgh's Award throughout my time at Greenhill and how it has helped me in further education and employment. The talk went really well and they have asked me to return to speak at some assemblies in the near future. It was great looking back through some old photos from my expeditions and I wanted to feature it in a blog post.
I'm going to be posting about my summer camp experience this year to let you know about working in the USA on a J1 Cultural Exchange VISA. I worked at camp in the summers of 2014 and 2015 and this brought my total time in the USA (including holidays/vacations) to over a year! It's amazing to think that I'm only 25 years old at the moment and I've spent that much time in the USA, covering 12 states throughout my travels.
