Email Camps if you haven't been placed!

by lucy3712 » 11 Jun 2012, 20:36

I hadn't been placed and was reaaally worried about not going anywhere and today I spent a good few hours emailing loads of camps with my details and skills and I had a couple of replies and FINALLY got placed!!! I really encourage everyone to email camps yourself because it really works and shows you have the initiative and interest to sort it yourself whilst waiting!

Good luck to everyone still not placed,keep positive! :D

Here is the link I used to find camps:

Congrats on the placement :-)

Thanks for the link also.... I have e-mailed a LOAD of camps :-)

Quick question though, did you inform CA of the placement?
And are all Camps on that site registered with CA?

Thanks

Thanks! :D I think all of the camps on there are with CA but when I emailed them I just said I was from Camp America just in case. When I was placed my camp sorted it all through the CA office so you don't have to contact anybody else, they sort it all for you and hopefully you will get an email soon saying Congratulations you have been placed!

I'm going to Camp Vega in Maine, flying out on Saturday 16th! Good luck to everyone still waiting,you've still got a few more weeks when they can hire you so fingers crossed! :)

i dont know if its a bit late to start but im getting desperate and was thinking of emailing a few camps!! I've had a look at the link you posted and there are loads! I was just wondering what kind of things you said in your email, like if you just literally stated that you were wondering if they had and places left or you sent a longer email explaining why you'd want to go there etc!
thanks!
Amy :D

I just said I was with Camp America and that I still haven't been placed so had a look at their website and it looked really good so thought I'd contact them myself. I gave a few details of my skills and a bit about me but not too much and then if they are with CA they will look you up and read everything you have written on your application then. Hope this helps! :)

Some camps like it and some don't. A lot of camps use Camp America as they do not want to deal with thousands of emails from applicants asking for jobs. So just bear in mind that if you are emailing camps it may in fact put them off you application.
