If your teenager is thinking of travelling over the summer, or taking a Gap year before, or after University, you might be worried about a few things: 

  • How will they finance their student travel?
  • How can they stay safe? 
  • Will a year out have a detrimental effect on their job prospects? 

Lee McAteer is the co-founder of Camp New York, a brand new camp in America, where young adults have the opportunity to earn money and gain work experience in a structured and safe environment, before travelling with their earnings. He says student travel is an amazing opportunity, and gives his tips on how to make sure it adds to students' CVs too.
