When was your first year at Camp Promise?
2011 was my first year!! I’ve been a counselor, UL, and am also the 2017 Camp Apprentice (“Campprentice” for short).
Why do you keep coming back to camp?
Camp is the one place in world where each day brings so much love, laughter, adventure, curiosity, and opportunity for everyone; without worry or any inhibitions. The one place in the world that allows you to lose yourself in all of the magic that camp has to offer. It’s a feeling that I wish I could bottle up and be able to have all year round.
What’s your favorite camp theme day and why?
I love all of them! Being able to kick your creativity into high gear and dress up… you just truly have to commit to a theme. I am always a sucker for the prom night. Love seeing everyone dressed up to the nines, or even dressed to match the theme!
What’s your favorite camp memory?
I couldn’t begin to pick a favorite, but some memories I cherish most involve our board of “firsts”. Sharing a moment with dear friends, instilling enough confidence for them to try something for the first time, nothing beats that!
If we did a talent show right now, what would your talent be?
I am a big fan of corny jokes, so I would probably do a combination of telling some corny jokes and jazz hands, I have a mean set of jazz hands.
What’s your day job?
Price and signage coordinator at Dick’s Sporting Goods.
