It is not about the company exaclty. Most camps in the us are totally independent in finding staff (thats why emailing some random camp might help - they might be interested in partnership with ca), some of them will have agreements with camp america or other similar, as camp america is one of the biggest they probably do have the most camps that they are working with.

Once you have applied it means your application is in the system and can be found by directors. It is just a matter of luck - it is not CA fault that some camps might not need anymore staff. Im sure they are doing anything to convinced camps to hire more and moe people.
Last year I was placed at the end of may and I know from this forum that some people were placed even at the end of June.
Maybe it is worth emailing camps - just to be sure you have done everything that was possible and also maybe u will find a camp that doesnt work with CA yet but would be interesten in partnership.
Also I think it is worth checking two things -
- list of camps that hired people last year in june (you can find camp names in multiple topics like rsg from last year on this forum) and maybe try emailing them as they might hire people late this year yoo
- be up to date with camps that placed people recentyl - you can also find it on this forum or on twitter for example

I've been waiting a similar time to you as I've been RTP since beginning of Oct.

I think I'll wait and see what happens but I agree I'm definitely going to go travelling if it doesn'y work out.

Although, I'm not too keen on the idea of travelling by myself!

Georgia! When did you get this email? A camp just contacted me today looking to place me and I have an interview on Monday for it. She found me through CA but I've not received anything to say they are not placing anymore people?

I'm not on RSG. I did get offered it but declined it due to personal circumstances which have now changed!

I think it might have something to do with particular skills. Is it to be a specialist or just general

They've sent that email to people who aren't able to be placed either due to their availability dates not fitting with any camps that are left, or because their skills aren't being hired for anymore :(
Really sorry to hear that you didn't get placed but now you have a whole summer to do what you want, and to apply again in 3 months! Now you know how the system works, you can get it all sorted quicker next time round :)

I'm panicking about the same thing, as I went to a visa meeting and met somebody who has also applied through camp america. I kept in contact with her and she has now been placed! I really hope that I get placed soon!!! :D

I've been on ready steady go since the start of April and haven't had a single word from any camp...its so annoying cause I cant make any summer plans either in the fear of getting a last minute call to say I've been placed and then loosing out on all the money I've paid so far cause I can't go :(
