On the Camp America Facebook page theres a discussion board and theres a post that says something about flying out of Auckland between the 5th-7th of June and youl see the reply on there. Yea cathleens been helping me with my flights. Ive been talking to 2 girls on facebook form the uk who are going to the same camp as me so we will probably travel round after camp together and then fly from New York to London as I have applied for a 2yr UK visa but have no idea what im going to do when I arrive! Theres so much to organise!

I cant remember the name of the websit but if you google UK visa it should come up, its called the UK Border aganecy or something like that? Ive only just sent the documents away yesterday for my UK Visa but I helped my flatmate and my other 2 mates that are going to the UK and once we sent all the documents away it only took a week for them to get accepted and have all their documents returned but ive heard from someother people that theirs have taken longer! Are you looking at going to the UK after?

I know it took me abit to find it for a start! But I have done it 3 times now becasue I helped all the boys with theirs so am pretty familiar with it now! Yea I looked at doing a contiki or something but they were a bit expensive for me so just going to travel with the greyhound buses maybe across america with the 2 other girls im at camp with! I would love to go to Ireland! Thats one place I want to go! Im a qualified vet nurse so might look at doing some locum vetnurse work in the UK!

Um not 2 sure I havnt looked into the pricing yet, they have a website but I see alot of other past campers have used them before. Yup thats the website that I used! Its pretty hard to get help if you dont undertsand anythgng though cuse the help line costs like $3 a minute so you have to just try find the answer to any questions in the FAQ.
