i can't fly until the 29th of June but they gave me guaranteed status, so don't worry it might happen yet. It did take a while i signed up in November/December and only just got guaranteed status. We'll just have to cross our fingers and wait, although it's not that easy really is it!

My dates are 23rd august to 15th august. I have no special skills so will most likely be placed as a general councellor if it ever happens. Thats great your leaving so late and have a guareenteed status. I really hope you are right about being placed in late april or early may

Hey. Ive set a leaving date for the 18th of June as it gives me time to hand in final college work, but i still havn't heard anything. Im only worried as Im not a very sporty person. Im only doing this for the childcare experience as thats what im just about to finish at college. So ive only but in for a generl conseller.

is it too late to change your applications?

because i was like you lot last year (not into sports at all/no skills lol), i applied literally just before the deadline but i managed to get placed because i said i didnt mind doing special needs, plus i had some small experience with special needs

maybe if u can change it to say you're open to special needs u might get placed faster?

at a last last resort you could try contacting camps which say they are recruiting on their website, ask them if positions are still available, then say you're in england so you're an international and that can see all your details through camp america. dont just bombard them, but see if they're recruiting first
