Camp Counselors are responsible for the overall supervision of campers with the aim of providing a healthy, safe and enjoyable camp environment and experience. A good Camp Counselor has strong leadership skills and is creative in implementing activities for campers.
I am currently part of the Professional Internship Company at the St. Louis Black Repertory Company. I also walk dogs as a side job! In my free time I like to craft, read, and binge watch Netflix shows. I believe camp is important because it allows us to remove ourselves from technology, and focus on ourselves. It's also a way to try new things in a safe environment!
I am a PhD student with UNL studying paleontology. I am passionate about science communication and informal learning. Outside of my research, you can find me dancing up in the air at my aerial studio, playing the guitar, or reading. I love the outdoors and often do field work in Wyoming. I went to camp every summer from the ages of 8 through 15, and being at camp allowed me to be independent and grow into who I am.
This summer 2021 will be my 4th year as a counselor at Camp Summergold! I work as a para educator at a middle school in a special ed classroom. I am so excited to be able to come back this year and I can’t wait to make some unforgettable memories with everybody!
I currently work at Dillard’s as a retail specialist. In my free time I like to hang out with my sisters, go hiking, do yoga and read. Camp is important because it helps build a lot of close friendships, and let’s you find your individuality. I’m excited to meet everyone and have a wonderful summer!
I attend UNL, working towards a degree in Secondary Education with an emphasis in Theatre Direction. I love to draw, sing, write music, and watch movies in my free time. Camp Summergold is important to me because I've been a camper myself for about 6 years, and have gained some wonderful and unforgettable experiences along the way!
I currently work as a barista while being a full time student at UNL. I love spending my free time in the outdoors camping, kayaking, or throwing the frisbee around with friends. Camp is important to me because it introduces me to cool people who I would not have had the opportunity to meet if it weren't for Summergold.
