Welcome to camp

Another camper, CIT, and JC joining us at the barn this summer! Meet Alex!

Hello friends! My name is Alex, I’m from Berkeley, California, and I’ll be one of your fearless riding instructors this summer. I can hardly believe summer is almost upon us, and I could not be more stoked about it!

This will be my first year on staff, although not my first great time at Coppercreek – I was a camper, CIT, and JC back in my day. Since those days, I went off to college, where I studied political science and graduated in 2015, and then moved to San Francisco and worked for a year. For the last eight or so months, though, I’ve been travelling and living abroad, mostly in Southeast Asia and South Africa.

This summer, I am beyond excited about capture the flag mania, rousing campfire song sessions, making (and maybe teaching you to make?) friendship bracelets of every pattern, and all of the adventure and good vibes I have always known camp to bring.

Last but not least, this was a great excuse to dig up the the oldest camp photos I could find! Taken in the early and mid ‘00s, as far as I can tell… 

(Baby Soliel! Awwww!)

Another Camper, CIT, TREKKER, and JC back to be a counselor!! Meet Leo!

Hey everyone! My name is Leo Daverson and I’m from Chico, California. This will be my 10th summer at Coppercreek, but my first as a Counselor. I’ve been a camper, CIT, Trekker, and a JC. I hope to make sure everyone enjoys camp as much as I have!


I’ll be running the drama activities so you’ll probably find me down at the campfire stage! 

I’m looking forward to seeing you all at camp this summer!

Back for her second summer… Meet Sera!

Hey everyone! My name is Sera and this will be my second year at Coppercreek! I am super excited to see everyone who is coming back again this year, and looking forward to meeting all of the new campers!

I chose to work at Coppercreek because I love to work with kids! I have been working as an afterschool teacher during the school year for the past two years now while I’m in school to get my teaching credential, and thought that my free time during the summers would be well-spent at camp.

In general, I am a very active person; I especially love hiking and biking, and this last spring break I tried surfing and snorkeling for the first time. I am looking forward to going on hikes at Mount Lassen and mountain bike rides with you all this summer!

You will also find me at various other activities at camp, including lifeguarding by the pool, assisting you at the ropes course, maybe leading yoga a time or two, and going on lake trips!

I am so excited for warm summer nights, goofy campfire songs, camp dances, and all of the wonderful things that make camp, camp! I look forward to seeing you all!

I am currently attending the University of Nevada, Reno, as a Biology major and Spanish Translation minor. I love spending time outdoors, exploring the areas around me, and almost anything to do in the water!

I enjoy trying new things and I can’t wait to meet you and explore with you this summer!

Joining Us From Mexico… Meet Arelly!

Hi everyone, my name is Arelly and I’m proudly Mexican, I live in a city called Puebla. I’m studying Restaurant and Hotel Management and I will be working in the kitchen. I’m really excited to be part of this experience, I have visited the U.S before but this is the first time that I travel alone. I have always wanted to visit California and I’m really looking forward to meeting you all.

I like to try new things and learn as much as I can. I’m a huge fan of sports; I used to play football soccer before I went to collage; now I only work out at the gym mostly because food is awesome.

I’m planning to make an internship in Spain after the camp is over in a hotel near a vineyard, which is one of my passions. Hopefully I will be traveling a lot.

I love music, reading, and drawing, dogs and all kinds of animals.  I enjoy seeing other people happy, that is the main reason why I picked my career, to make people feel like they are home.  Kids are fun and there is so much we can learn from them. Some day I will like to work with Asperger and Autism kids.

I like to hang out with people that know things that I don’t and learn from them.

Can’t wait to be there!

Joining Us from the UK… Meet Lucy!

Hello everyone! My name is Lucy and I’m from a small town called Tavistock in the UK. This is my first trip to America and I’m so excited to meet everyone at Coppercreek! I love animals and I am currently studying Equine Science and Business at University. I can’t wait to get stuck in at the barn.
When I am not playing ponies, I love to go to the beach to spend time with my family and play fetch with the dogs! I enjoy most sports, especially if they are outside, and taking photographs of the animals on the farm where I live.
I did many Pony Club and Brownie camps as a child and I want to make sure that everyone has as much fun as I did. See you all very soon 🙂

Bringing Artistic Talents From England… Meet Rose!

Hi, I’m Rose! I am really excited to join Coppercreek Camp this summer. I’ve never been to America before and this will be my first time to camp. I used to go on camp trips when I was at school and it was the only thing I would speak about for weeks after. I want to make sure the kids have just as much fun as I did.

I’m from a little town in England called Morpeth, but right now I am finishing my studies at the University of Stirling in Scotland.  Just counting down the days until I fly to camp!

I have a strong passion for art. I love painting, drawing and making things out of all materials and have been involved in arts and crafts ever since I was young. I also love the outdoors. If the weather wasn’t so rainy here in Scotland, I would be out all the time. I also enjoy music and most sports. The only sport I don’t like is golf, but even then I will still play crazy golf! I love to have new experiences and adventures and I love to laugh and have fun. I like to think I am a kind and patient person and have been told I am open minded. I try everything at least once. I also love animals, especially cats and owls as you can see. Looking forward with anticipation to meet you all!

Back For Her Second Summer of Photos, High Ropes, and Campfires…. Meet Sid!

Hey everyone! My name’s Sid and I’m from Turlock, CA currently studying Cellular/Molecular Biology at Humboldt State!

This will be my second summer at Coppercreek and I can’t wait to get back! Life just isn’t the same without all of the stand-up songs and awesome activities.

In my spare time, I like to keep myself busy by going hiking, playing music, working on my photography, hanging out at the beach, taking selfies with my dog, teaching myself guitar, playing sports and a whole lot of other things!


You can find me at almost every single activity at camp from lifeguarding and mountain biking to taking pictures at the barn and all over! Some of my favorite things to do at camp are high ropes, campfire, the pool, Vespers, themed dances and of course taking pictures!

Can’t wait to see you all soon and go on many more adventures!!

Joining Us From Tennessee… Meet Ethan!

My name is Ethan Duckworth and I was born and raised in a small town out in the middle of East Texas. I now live in Nashville, Tennessee where I am finishing my degree in Audio Engineering in the heart of music city. I am also the Middle Tennessee State University mascot “Lightning” which is a blast!

I absolutely love to travel and am always down for a new adventure. Whether it is hiking in the Mountains, camping on the coast, or just a road trip, I’m there. This will only be my second time to be in California, and I can’t wait! Once I leave camp, I will be going straight to Europe where I will spend the next five months traveling and studying abroad.

I’ve never been to Copper Creek camp, but I used to love going to camp as a kid, and I always told myself that I would work at a summer camp at least once. I can’t wait to meet y’all and see where this new adventure leads!

Coming from Poland… meet Agnieszka!

Hello everyone!

My name is Agnieszka and I’m from Poland. I teach English and it gives me a lot of satisfaction. Every day I sing and dance with kids, and my flat is slowly turning into a toy shop.

I’m interested in foreign languages and right now I’m learning Spanish. I like spending time close to nature – especially in the mountains. Why? Because of people who I can meet on a trail, because of amazing views which compensate tiredness after several hours of hiking and because of the evenings with a guitar and singing.

Other than this I really enjoy traveling – visiting new places, getting to know people and customs which are different than mine. Whenever I have some free time I go to the theatre, concerts and other cultural events.

This will be my third summer in the USA but the first at Coppercreek Camp and I can’t wait to get to know all of you!
