Also joining us from Colombia… meet Jeyson!

Hi everybody!

My full name is Jeyson Andrés Vega Romero, I was born in Bucaramanga, Colombia and actually I am systems engineering student.

When I was a child I was always in a bad mood so my parents called me “chocho” (This is a Colombian expression to say that a baby is angry), then they changed it for “Checho” so now all my family call me Checho.

I am volunteer since I was 17 and my volunteer work has been especially with children from different towns of Santander-Colombia, teaching them teamwork, respect, honesty, and more values using games, songs and sports.

I love camping since I was 10 years old when I lived my first experience at camp. I also love extreme sports so I usually go with my friends to Santander towns to practice extreme sports. We usually practice rafting (it is my favorite), rappelling, climb and high-ropes.

Also, I like listening to music and I am learning to play guitar. I like literature books, programming, and to be in contact with nature.

I think this experience will be part of the best stories of my life and I am really anxious to live it and to meet all of you!

Meet your other adventure buddy…Alec!

Hello Coppercreekers!


I’m Alec, a true Californian born and raised.  I am probably the goofiest dude you will run into at Coppercreek. I’m living in Quincy, CA studying Outdoor Recreation Leadership at Feather River College.  I LOVE everything adventure. Skiing, climbing, kayaking, trail running, bike tours, backpacking…you name it, i love it.  When I’m not adventuring you can find me practicing yoga, acroyoga, meditation, playing ukulele/piano, or skate boarding.

Additionally, I have a strong love for helping others. I am currently a Wilderness First Responder along with many other back country medical and rescue titles. On top of college, I am training to be a Wilderness EMT.

Another passion of mine is fitness and nutrition.  Cooking nutritious food makes me feel amazing and teaching others about food is even better.

This will be my second summer at Coppercreek, and am stoked to hang out with all my camper pals! See y’all soon!

Meet Kevin!

Sawadee (Hello in Thai) My name is Kevin. I grew up in the mountains of Warner Springs, California, but now I go to Feather River College in the mountains of Quincy, California. I am pursuing a major in Outdoor Recreation Leadership. I am an explorer always out to seek a new and great adventure.


I like to take part in many activities year-round like hiking, biking, climbing, wakeboarding, snowboarding, and much more. I like learning and trying new things, which is why this will be my second year at Coppercreek Camp. There’s always something new going on. With so much to learn!

I can’t wait till summer starts! See you at camp!
