I have now received my contract yay !

2 questions:

How have you people written the address - is it our home address - I was thinking of just putting UK on the state bit and post code on Zip is this correct?

Also how does the card thing work when we get paid?

Jennifer: The PayPal card is basically a card with all your earnings on it. You can use it like a credit card in shops or to take out cash from banks and ATMs. I think. I read a leaflet about it but that was a while back and I've lost said leaflet. But the above is pretty much the jist of it.

Can anyone who's been to Ladore before tell me what sort of things I should pack, and how much? What activities do they do?

I'm not just a Ladore newbie, lol, I'm a Camp America newbie too.

Also, anyone flying out on the 12th of June? 1pm flight?

Emma: Oops, my bad, my flight is actually 4pm. I was looking at the check-in time.

Jen: I also put my home address, but seeing as we can only use the card in the USA I probably should have put the camp one. If there's a problem then the Director will sort it out with us when we arrive though, so no worries.

Hey, that's a good idea. I don't think I'll get Camp Ladore printed on mine but I will wear a sticker with the name on it.

Heee, I've been getting so excited lately! Except I can't go to a big night out with my friends next Monday because I need the passport (which now has my visa in) to get into clubs, and if anything happens so that it gets lost or damaged then my summer is right royally funked. It's a small risk but the price is huge.

Camp Ladore had better be good in order to make up for this :wink: .

There should have been a green piece of paper in with your pack saying what you needed to send and keep. I signed and sent one copy of the job description, the actual contract, the payroll thing, the 'Working with Minors' form, and the Participant Release form.
