Camp America – Leeds Sixth Form College student hones volunteering skills

Earlier this year, Leeds Sixth Form College took part in a project with Camp America which offered up to 90 students a once-in-a-lifetime work experience opportunity in the United States over the summer. The trip, which was organised through Keighley College (a fellow member of Luminate Education Group), included travel, accommodation and living costs.

Erikas Gotovskij, an A level student studying biology, maths and chemistry, is currently on placement at Camp Herrlich on the border of New York state and Connecticut. Nestled amongst stunning rural surroundings, the camp has a beautiful lake for students to swim and kayak in. There’s a converted school bus which is an art room and, rather than residential stays, they do more day visit activities with children. Erikas has finished his first year of A levels and hopes to study medicine, with the eventual goal of becoming a heart surgeon. He believes this experience will give him the confidence to volunteer for placements in hospitals. After the camp he is travelling for a month to Chicago, Ohio, Michigan and Rhode Island.

You can get a further idea of what life on a Camp America placement is like here.
