Hi everyone :)

During summer last year, I applied to Americamp - a company which places you to work at American summer camps. After completing my application I received an email to say it was being sent off, only to receive another one saying that there was a problem due to my medical history.
During 2014 whilst studying at school I had a bit of a bout of anxiety and very mild depression due to the stress of and not enjoying school. I however never took medication and I am okay now. I have been told that due to this my chances of being placed at a camp are very slim.

I am a girl guide leader, and work with children every week. We take the girls on camps and do similar things to what I would be doing at a summer camp.

My hopes were built up so high, being told my application and video were amazing, to then be dropped down :(

I wondered what people's thoughts are on this topic, and whether you think I have a chance.

Thanks :)
