Staff in the Spotlight

Getting to Know Gemma Price

 Gemma Price

Where are you from:  Wales, UK

Years at I.S.: 2

What is your favourite memory from last summer?
Such a hard question as the whole summer was absolutely brilliant its hard to pick, but some of my highlights were color war, college days and seeing my campers win mock rock.

What did you learn from your experience last summer?
I learnt how to cope during pressured situations and that there is always a reason behind how children act.

What are you looking forward to most about the upcoming summer?
I’m so excited to see all of the returning staff and campers from last summer. I also can’t wait to meet all of the new staff and first year campers.

What advice do you have for staff who are going to be at Iroquois Springs for the first time this summer?
My advice for first time staff members would be to make the most of every second at camp because camp flies by. Camp has been the most rewarding job I have ever done, being selfless and a role model is a major part of a counselors job.

As a returner, how are you looking to grow this summer as a counselor?
As a returner, I am looking to gain more experience and confidence as a teacher and leader.
