Back for Round Two!

Meet Nick!

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.
