Hey! I’m Megan McCauley and this is my first summer at Copper Creek. I cannot wait to get to camp…so excited! I grew up in St. Louis, Missouri but moved to Tempe, Arizona three years ago to go to school at Arizona State University. I’m an Earth and Environmental Science major and have one more year left in school…then I’m hoping to work as an environmental scientist (or at least to do something that allows me to work and connect with both people and nature).
I’m very outdoorsy….hiking, camping, rock climbing, kayaking, etc. is my life 🙂 I always tell people that if I could, I would live in a treehouse in a forest, for the rest of my life! Nature is what brings out my happiest self and it’s what makes me feel the most at home.
I also listen to a lot of country music cause let’s face it: country music is definitely the best. And, I like to play my guitar on a daily basis. I taught myself everything I know and have been playing for about six years now and really love it….especially when I can play it outside! I’m really looking forward to bringing it to camp and to be able to share music with the kiddos 🙂 I am most looking forward to meeting the kids at camp and having the opportunity to make a difference in their lives the same way my counselors did for me when I was a camper…and of course I can’t complain about living in nature for the summer and getting to meet other counselors from all over 😀
So you want to know random facts about me? I am excellent at impersonating other people’s laughs…so get ready for me to try yours! I also talk to myself a lot as if I’m my own best friend (only child syndrome….gotta love it). One of my biggest goals in life is to attend a salsa tasting convention. I also intend to put on blue suede shoes and walk in Memphis while listening to the song…not even kidding…it will happen. So that’s pretty much me! Looking forward to meeting all of my fellow counselors and all the kiddos this summer!! 🙂
