ANNOUNCEMENT || Camp America 15'

Earlier this week I announced briefly on Twitter that I'd got a job in America and it's time I told you a little more about it. If you've been a follower of this blog from the beginning then you'll know I attended Camp America last year (2014) and had an amazing time you can see what I got up to here. This year I decided to try again and see if I could get another position at a different Camp.
So this year I'm going to work at a Ranch Camp in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and I am so excited and overwhelmed.
My job role will be caring for horses, teaching children how to ride, improving their confidence, experience and skills on horseback. I'll also be mucking out, cleaning tack and general care of the stables. This position is also pretty exciting as although I'll be working with the children I'll be living with the team of counsellors in apartment style living conditions, which is completely different from last year where I lived, ate and was with the kids 24/7. So it will be a completely different experience, it's safe to say I'm extremely excited.
I fly our around the 21st/22nd I'm aiming to continue blogging throughout the experience, I'm thinking of starting a series while I'm out there called Camp America || The Ranch so you can all keep up as I'll have wifi in my living arrangements.
Part two of my journey in America will be visiting Christine, my friend from the An American in Wales series which you can catch up on here. I'll be spending a couple of days in Chapel Hill exploring North Carolina before heading home to hopefully (If I pass my exams) start university, another massive journey and possible blog series. And that concludes this announcement. I hope to bring you all along the way.

What will you be doing this summer?
