As with all my extended pieces of writing, I solemnly kick it off with a Simpsons quote. "I used to be with it, but then they changed what *it* was. Now what I'm with isn't *it*, and what's *it* seems weird and scary to me. It'll happen to you..." But, until it does I cannot implore you enough to spend the summer of a lifetime at educom English camps. Most of what I want to say about my experience over 3 years there would probably be cut by those intolerable EU censors but in keeping it PG all I'll say is those 3 summers are amongst the most treasured memories I have in life. I cannot put into words the life skills I learned through working with tremendous kids both in and out of the classroom (the definition of 'out' being, rafting, canyoning, mountain karting, high ropes, and my personal favourite, lying in the blistering Austrian sun at an outdoor swimming pool, sipping a beer, hiding from kids while the mountains in the foreground give you a cheeky wink of approval. All of this was great but what really makes the camps what they are, are the people. The children and the adults. It is to be experienced the different nationalities and personalities you meet in these kids and the lads you work with will become friends for life. I had a certain blonde Austrian gent turn up on my Irish doorstep and crash (with his cousin) on my couch for a week and am aiming to return the favour by returning to one of the sites that you will have the pleasure of working in and making him regret ever pursuing such a foolish endeavour. I can't recommend this 'job' (inverted commas intended, for it doesn't feel like this most of the time) enough. Great days, amazing nights and maybe, JUST MAYBE, a cheeky visit to Casino Salzburg; but only if you play your cards right....*gets coat* Go for it guys, I promise you, you will not regret it xx
