Meet a returning superstar!

Hi. I’m Becca Rudy.


I came to camp when I was 10 years old and have been a traditional camper, CIT, JC and a Trekker. Now I am returning as a counselor for my fourth summer. Can you tell I love camp?


I grew up in Davis, CA, and I just graduated college from Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio with a BFA in Acting. I love to act, sing and dance. After camp, I am going to be working at Walt Disney World in Florida and then after that, I am going to make the move to NYC. Yay!


Though I love the theater world and being creative, I have a huge passion for the outdoors. Some things I love to do at camp are kayaking, wakeboarding, and stand-up paddle boarding (can you tell I like the water?). I also love the high ropes course!


I think my all-time favorite camp event is the camp dances. I love to dress in a silly costume and dance with all my friends. I am also a huge fan of Vespers night.


I could go on and on about everything I love at camp, but I won’t because that would take 10 more pages. However, I will say this: Coppercreek camp has been in my life for a long time, and it has truly helped shape me into the person I am today. The experiences I have had, the family I have made, and the personal growth I have seen in myself have made me more confident and more well-rounded. This place does have magic, and I can’t wait to share and witness that with all of the new and returning faces this summer! pic2

Greetings! I’m Michael Pero, originally from Venutra County, California and currently living in the Lost Sierra, a.k.a. Plumas County. I’ll be the climbing instructor this year and this will be my first year at Coppercreek Camp.pic 3

During the rest of the year I occupy myself with rock climbing, white water kayaking, guiding white water rafting, college, backpacking and more!pic 2

For this summer, I’m most excited about getting everyone excited about rock climbing and kayaking. I’m very passionate about my beard and like to change the style of it so you might not recognize me throughout the summer.Pic 1

Introducing another super-duper counselor….

Meet Kevin HowardTeam Robin Hood

My name is Kevin Howard, and my hometown is Dodge City, KS. For the past 5 years I have been attending Emporia State University, which has ultimately led me to obtain my degree in recreation. For the past few years I have been working in the Vision Quest After School program at the Emporia Middle School, which provides students the opportunity to participate in a wide range of activities after school such as sports, art, robotics, gardening, and many more. New Bike

When I’m not in class or working, I enjoy hitting the trails on my mountain bike, or take my dog, Zim, on a walk out on the trails. Weekend gatherings around a nice fire with good friends is always a great way to top off any week. I take interest in cars, trucks, and motorcycles, racing, and any type of adventure activities. While I haven’t gotten to try everything on my list, I am definitely open to almost anything.Zim's Gotcha Day

I am looking forward to the great opportunity to meet everyone this summer, and take part in some activities that will be new to me, as well as sharing some activities that could possibly be new to those at camp. I am excited for summer to get here and let the fun begin!Ace Ventura Outfit
