Thanks to the Principle’s Go Abroad fund, I was able to spend 3 months working at a summer camp in California. Camp America is an organisation that recruits people from around the world and places them at summer camps all over the US. I was fortunate enough to be placed at YMCA Camp Oakes in Big Bear, California. Camp Oakes provides children from disadvantaged backgrounds with an escape from their daily struggles and I had the pleasure of providing them with fun and exciting activities during their week at Camp. These activities included ziplining, canoeing, fishing, high ropes challenge course, swimming etc. This opportunity allowed me to meet some incredible people from around the world and make a difference in the lives of many young campers. I am extremely grateful to have experienced true American culture thanks to the Principle’s Go Abroad fund!
