Why did you decide to work at camp this summer?

Camp is an amazing opportunity to meet new people and inspire a younger generation of campers. Learning all about nature whilst having the joys of being at camp sounds like such a perfect experience!

What are you looking to learn from this summer?

I am looking forward to learning from other camp counselors and campers, learning new skills, and expanding my knowledge.

What do you think you can bring to camp this summer which will impact our campers?

One thing everyone tells me is I have a larger than life personality. My confidence is frightening! My patience, understanding, and listening skills are all important qualities that I have that will make me a great camp counselor!

What are you looking forward to most about this summer?

Summer is the season of sunny skies, flourishing wildlife and all around joy. EVERYONE loves summer. Having the opportunity to be in a country that I have dreamt of visiting since I was 4 years old is a whole mood within itself, never mind being able to help and inspire campers to reach for their goals!

Tell us an interesting fact/story about yourself!

I am a HUGE reptile nerd and an all round animal guy. During my prime time animal keeping I had over 100 animals! For most people having just one dog is just perfect, however, my ideal pet situation would be to to fill my life and be surrounded by reptiles, animals, and nature. What can I say, I love animals!
