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!

Another summer of frogs, fish, and horses…Meet Natalie!

Hello everyone! My name is Natalie and I’m from Turlock, CA. This will be my fourth summer at Coppercreek and I am very excited!

I am currently at Cal State University Stanislaus studying English and Spanish to become a teacher. I spend much of my free time out in the barn giving kids riding lessons, taking lessons on Lacy Jane Johnson, and helping with various projects – such as ripping arenas during the rains and updating the fences.

I also enjoy spending time with my friends and family fishing, hiking, camping, and practicing aikido.

During the summer, you can find me in the barn giving riding lessons, studying with campers who are working on CHA ribbons, showing campers how much fun it is to vault, and making friendship bracelets on the deck. You can also find me leading fishing and frog catching adventures at Lynne’s Pond.

I look forward to another summer at camp and, of course, Capture the Flag night!

Quotes from Summer 2016 Campers

“Going to camp this year gave me a lot of confidence and after being extremely shy my first year of high school, it was revealing to me how I let my shyness get ahead of me and keep me from having a good time. At Coppercreek, it didn’t happen. I was confident.”


“I had the chance to be comfortable, confident, and in a place where I can be myself.”


“This was my 5th summer at Coppercreek and it has been the greatest experience ever. I met so many people and have memories that will last a lifetime.”


“Coppercreek is probably my most favorite place on the planet.”


“Each year just some how gets better and better.”



“The whole camp experience was everything I wanted and more.”


“Coppercreek opened me up so much and gave me confidence and friends for the first time in my life.”



“Coppercreek is my family.”
