Probably all of you have heard something about the programmes offering summer jobs in the United States. Some of you may have already participated and the rest of you definitely should try.
When you decide to work at an American summer camp you never know what to expect before you get there. One thing is sure though: you will get much more than a summer job at a camp…
24 hours with the kids and camp life make you a different person. A person who never sleeps enough, who run into raccoons in the middle of the night outside the cabin or maybe who finds some squirrels next to her bed eating her food. Perhaps you will be belaying 50 people a day on ropes and get tired during cheering at a camp event or game. But what is more important, you will be a person being appreciated by the kids and while you teach them you can also learn a lot about yourself – kids, connections, people…
My camp was in the beautiful, small state of New Hampshire and I got 9 amazing weeks full of sweet memories about day and night offs and camp events shared with my friends. Some to mention are camp dances, the pleasure of the rest hour, defining the difference between camp food and real American food – because there is! I had a chance to meet and become friends with people who I would never have met any other way. I heard different points of view than mine and learned how to work in a team … and much more.
When I left the camp I was free to travel and there was no way I could miss that! There are many awesome places to see. I have been to Boston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Diego, New York …Where ever I went I was impressed by the openness and acceptance I saw.
When you apply a summer like that, you apply for a summer of a lifetime. I cannot say a thing about why you should not go. But before you go, just make sure your attitude is right… Most of the time even bad situations can become good memories if we make them.
All in all, I have learned and gained things that cannot be taught at schools. I think the best thing in travelling is when you meet yourself and see how far you can push out your own limits and improve your skills. That is such a wonderful thing it is certainly worth investing in.

What makes Finland special?
What is the first thing that comes to mind about Finland? Snowy winters, pleasantly warm summers, colourful springs and autumns? Lots of trees and an endless carpet of forest with lakes in between? A breath of fresh air? The endless days of summer? The cool winters and the other cool things like Finlandia, berries and reindeers and Jolopukki?
A safe country with well-developed infrastructure, good service and high technology?
Space? Peace? Quiet? Time?
It could be any of these but you may still be wondering what Finland is really like. Who are these Finns and what are they like? How do they live and what are they interested in?
Come and see for yourself!
Bring your mug and be our guest for a drink!
The presentation will be broadcasted on-line:

Eight Faculty members of the Tourism Department took part in the 3-days-long very informative and inspiring Convention days of ITB Berlin in March. The ITB, the world’s largest tourism trade fair lasted 5 days in Berlin and attracted guests from all over the world. Over 11,000 exhibitors from 188 countries were eager to offer their services by helping consumers to find the best lodging, plan personal destination trips and take advantage of a variety of tours and activities. About 170,000 visitors attended the fair this year. The visitors were offered the opportunity to learn about current travel trends of the travel industry. This year’s main topics were sustainability, innovation, eco-mobility, social responsibility and new opportunities in social media in connection with tourism. Our small group divided itself in order to be present at most of the professional programmes and after arriving home we shared our experience with each other and with our colleagues who could not participate at the fair. For me, this program was a special experience, so I suggest all of you to take part in this unique event where “the top knowledge is free of charge.”
