It depends - in the past I was only asked if i was doing CA and what camp i was going to. This year they quizzed me cos I am currently unemployed and will be when I come home, and cos i care for my mother what she would do (i think). It isn't worth stressing over.

im just confused what im meant to say when they ask what camp you going to (as i dont have one at the moment) and what date i will be returning (dont know that either as i dont have a camp). has anyone else been in the same position?

I don't have a camp either and the questions i got asked at my Visa interview were

1. Have you ever been arrested?
2. Have you ever been to America?
3. What do you plan to do when you return to England?

"What is your job in the camp?"
"What kind of camp is it?"
"Why do you want to work there?"

Yeah, if anyone else is still worrying about it; don't. I don't think it matters too much about how clued up you are because the guy who did mine was joking with me and after asking where abouts my camp actually is, he then asked me what I knew about the place...to which I said, 'not too much but I know there's a lot of ticks!'
You can't get much more of a daft answer than that! =P
Then we had a small chat about the wildlife over there and it was all over in about 1 or 2 mins! Visa granted =)
(cheers to all the camp america staff there, you guys were a big help)

i didn't know what camp i was going to when i got my visa, so don't worry about it, i got asked - 'how long do you intend to stay in america for', i said four months, he said thank you your visa has been accepted!

I got asked:

1. Why do you want to go to camp?

2. Do you think it'll help in your career (or something)?
-Weiiird question yes, but I'm studying medicine and want to specialise in paediatrics, so luckily I was able to answer that question fine. =)

Don't worry, my interviewer at least was reallllly nice and friendly. He finished it off with a big smile and a 'have an awesome trip!'
Just don't be nervous and there's nothing to worry about.

They asked me where I am going in America, and why I want to do CA. It was a complete waste of time if you ask me, but if that's what the Americans want us to do...

Honestly though, so long as you aren't a mass murderer or whatever there isn't really anything to worry about.
