16 December, 2004 — Toronto, Canada — How do teenagers from Russia, Britain and South Africa make money while touring the United States over the summer holidays? They score highly sought-after jobs as counselors through Camp Counselors USA and mySummerCamps.com.
International Youth Offered New Experiences Through CCUSA and mySummerCamps.com Pairing
mySummerCamps.com — the internet’s number one summer camp directory — is pleased to announce a new partnership with Camp Counselors USA (CCUSA). In light of the number of foreign staff applicants who visit mySummerCamps.com for camp jobs, mySummerCamps.com will direct all non-US and non-Canadian applicants to CCUSA.com, where they will be registered and promoted to the North American camps looking for foreign summer staff.
In exchange, CCUSA will direct all North Americans seeking summer employment to mySummerCamps.com, where they will have access to a comprehensive directory of camp jobs across Canada and the United States. CCUSA and mySummerCamps.com will also feature prominent badge ads on their sites in order to promote each other’s goods and services.
“What an exciting new joint venture,” CCUSA President Bill Harwood enthuses. “CCUSA receives countless applications from North Americans who do not qualify for the CCUSA program. Not only will these students now have access to the hottest camp jobs in North America, but new international kids who frequent mySummerCamps.com will find out about us. A nineteen year-old college student in Belgium who has never heard of CCUSA will be able to spend his summer working in California because he was directed to us through the mySummerCamps.com website.”
“I am thrilled at the opportunity to recommend as wonderful a service as CCUSA to the large number of international kids looking for a chance to travel, earn money, learn and grow in the U.S. This partnership makes perfect sense,” says mySummerCamps.com President Evan Heltay. “Both companies will profit tremendously, but the greatest benefit goes to the scores of young people around the world who will be connected to the most amazing, life-changing opportunities abroad.”
Camp professionals regard mySummerCamps.com as the full-service source for summer camps, camp jobs and camps for sale or rent all over the world. Their highly popular directory ensures that when families access their site they find camps that match their specific requests. In addition to being the most trafficked camp directory on the internet, mySummerCamps.com also offers one of the most popular staffing resources and a unique camp rental tool to help camps bring in additional revenue during the off-season. As a gateway to camp activity, mySummerCamps.com offers content for parents, campers, camp staff and camp professionals alike. mySummerCamps.com is owned and operated by Target Directories Corp.
