For many, the experience of working at camp can be life-changing and for all it offers enormous benefits - increased confidence, organisational and management skills, the ability to work successfully with people, and a positive attitude to life in general. Working at camp provides a great addition to a university or job personal statement and CVs.
Working at Camp Cooper is a life-changing experience!
