There is no question that I had the absolute time of my life in the summer of 1998 as a 20 year old sports coach working in New Hampshire. It gave me so much....independence, self confidence and opened up so many opportunities..but this is not about me!!
This is about the mutually beneficial and fundamentally essential opportunity for cultural exchange. So many people from across the world have worked at Summer Camps in the US, giving 100% of themselves to caring for the young people at camp, sharing their culture in the best of environments.
Any curtailment of these opportunities would be hugely damaging. There must be a solution that will safeguard the undeniable benefits of foreign staff working at camp whilst ensuring that these opportunities are not misused.
I hope the right decisions are made
