Getting to Know Jodie Hawkins

Jodie Hawkins

Position at Camp: Horseback Riding Specialist

Why did you decide to work at camp this summer?

I’ve always wanted to travel more, so I thought working at a camp in America would be a great opportunity to create memories while gaining experience.

What are you looking to learn from this summer?

I am looking forward to learning and gaining more skills, while also learning more about the American summer camp culture, as we don’t have many summer camps here in the UK.

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

Firstly, my British humor, and secondly, my knowledge and experience with horses and horse riding.  I have ridden my whole life, so I have a lot of knowledge to share!

What are you looking forward to most about this summer?
I am looking forward to experiencing an American summer at camp, and also creating more memories and friendships.

Tell us an interesting fact/story about yourself!
I come from a very sporty family; my dad is into windsurfing and golf, my mum skiing, my sister rowing and jujitsu.  However, horse riding has always been my favorite!
