Hi there! My name is Quinton and I am 21 years old. I was born and raised in Bakersfield, California. My town is known for its influence in country music but oddly enough that’s the only kind of music I don’t listen to (It’s all about that classic rock!) I’m what I would consider a typical Californian. I love the outdoors, Im pretty laid back, and I know how to have a good time. The only thing I don’t do (yet) is surf, but hopefully that will change in the future!
I am currently a college student working towards my degree in astrophysics. Sounds crazy right? It’s actually not as bad as you might think. In short, I just love looking at the stars! Oh, and black holes are cool too.
Some of my hobbies include playing basketball, blacksmithing, stargazing, weight training, hiking, camping (full on survivor man status), listening to music (not country), and watching movies. Also, I am a huge sports fan. Basketball is my passion but I also enjoy football, dodgeball, track and field, ultimate frisbee, capture the flag, you name it. If it’s a sport I’ll play it!
Right off the bat I can tell I am going to have something in common with a lot of the campers because this will not only be my first summer at Coppercreek, but at any summer camp. I am looking forward to meeting all of you having the opportunity to help make this the best summer ever! I hope everyone’s ready to have some fun fun in the sun!
I’m Rachel, I’m from the Bay Area and I’m currently in school in LA, studying Psychology. I can’t wait to spend my summer at Coppercreek!
I spent one session as a CIT at Coppercreek back in 2011 and I’m excited to return.
My hobbies include sports (volleyball, anyone?), eating good food, petting every dog I see, and lots more! A few fun facts about me are that I’m currently learning how to play piano, I know how to make hair scrunchies by hand, and my favorite food is pizza.
Hi my name is Nick. I am 22 years old and currently live in Oklahoma. I went to camp at the YMCA in Ponca City from ages 12-16, and have been in love with camp ever since!
I started as a Teen Camper at the YMCA at age 12 where I found my inspiration for becoming a counselor and role model from Savanah Standifer. After I finished the program at 16 I started working as a camp counselor there. Six years later, I am here at Coppercreek and I could not be happier doing anything else for a living!
I am a very outgoing person and willing to try anything once! I am very athletic and competitive but know how to put it aside and make sure the kids still have fun because that is what camp is all about, FUN! I am happy to be returning for my second year at Coppercreek and cannot wait to continue making memories.
You can find me just about anywhere at Coppercreek… sometimes even as a jump setting assistant or vaulting star!
P.S. Safety First Then Friends.
