The UK 300
In a time of economic downturn, where it is increasingly difficult for students and young people to find jobs, placements and even internships, it has never been more important to use your summer and free time wisely! This is where Camp America comes in...
In 2012, Camp America placed 6th in the Hospitality, leisure and tourism sector of the UK's top rated employers. The findings were published by The Guardian UK 300, who compiled one of the biggest ever student surveys of UK employers and what students want from their graduate careers. Students were asked which career sectors interest them most and which organisations within those sectors they most want to work for! The in-depth data analysis is based on a survey of around 16,000 students and is the largest and most representative survey of its kind.
When an employer sees the words “Camp America” on a CV, they know that this individual has used their summer wisely – and that this person has been exposed to an environment where the opportunity to develop personally is immeasurable! The camp environment helps develop key skills and attributes that EVERY SINGLE employer the country over desires, from their work force:
- Organisational skills
- Communication skills
- Time management skills
- Inter-personal skills
The camp environment is so demanding on the individual that it builds a fantastic work ethic and provides young people with a level of responsibility that they wouldn’t be given, in any other environment. This allows the individual to flourish and develop more in the 9 weeks of camp than they are likely to in a part-time job, work placement or apprenticeship.
Taking all of this into consideration, you can rest assured that participating with Camp America is not only going to provide you with the most fun-filled summer of your life – but is also going to push-forward your personal and professional development, that will stand you in great stead when you are ready to enter the big bad world of full-time employment, and begin to achieve your career goals!
