Hi everyone! My name is Shelby Jones and I’m from Granite Bay, CA. When I was nine years old I came to Coppercreek for the first time as a camper. I loved camp so much I came back three more summers as a camper and now I’m back for my first summer as a camp counselor.
I just graduated with my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from California State University, Chico and I am planning on going to graduate school to obtain my Master’s in Marriage and Family Therapy some day.
The greatest love of my life has been horses. I have been horse crazy ever since I was old enough to know what they were. I’ve been riding and competing in equestrian sports ever since I was eight years old.
Some of my other favorite activities are painting, drawing, bike riding, tennis and watching movies. I can’t wait to meet you all, see you at camp!
Hello everyone! My name is Edwin Hernandez. I am from Pachuca, Hidalgo,Mexico, studying a degree in marketing at the Universidad Autónoma del Estado de Hidalgo.
I cannot wait to visit America this year and work at Coppercreek Camp. Next year I will go exchange to Europe or Asia. Also after I graduate I hope to get a scholarship to study a master’s degree abroad.
In my spare time I like listening to music, playing video games or hanging out with friends. I also like sports like soccer, Crossfit and ride bikes or running in the woods. I also can cook an awesome hamburger!
This is my first trip out of the country and also the first time I’ll be at a summer camp. I hope this will be a great experience with all of you and especially fun. I’m pretty excited to meet you all see soon.
Hello! I am Charlotte. I am 23 years old and live in the Netherlands near by Amsterdam. I have a great passion for horses since I was little. Every Saturday I was at the horse barn to help the instructors with their lessons. A little horse addict.
When I was 12 years old my parents bought a piece of land with a little barn on it. A few months later we bought our first pony. We still own her. My best friend. She is a real alrounder! I did a lot of jumping training with her and she is really experienced in the outback trails. My sister trained her dressage and now, on at the age of 20, she is riding with children. Some of those are riding championships with her. I am very proud of my little pony.
Five years ago, I bought my own Andalusian foal. I raise her myself. In between working with her, I was teaching young horses. Now I am riding my own Andalusian mare and she is going great!
One other great passion of my is diving! I started a few years ago and now I am addicted! It started in Koh Tao in Thailand. I saw beautiful natural creatures there, it was amazing! A year later I traveled to Indonesia with my mom. Diving there was a real turtle experience!
I like to work with children, people and animals (especially horses). When I was 19 I worked the whole summer at a horse camp in Holland. That was also an amazing time with a lot of adventures. I also groom dogs!
I look forward for this summer. I like to meet you all and make a really special time together. Time we will never forget! Think it will be great!
My name is Glenn J. Dickson III, but I go by “Josh”. This will be my first summer at Coppercreek Camp. I was born in Macon, Georgia and I went to High School in Bartlesville Oklahoma. Currently, I am working towards my Engineering Degree at Northern Oklahoma College.
My hobbies include (but are not limited to) Music, Reading, Writing, Photography, Chess, Longboarding, Building, Fixing, Breaking, Hiking and Mountain Biking. I enjoy sports and any field activities. On an average day I will be the one riding around campus on the “giant skateboard”, I will also be the one falling off the “giant skateboard”.
On a not so average day I will probably be trying to figure out how to do something that I know absolutely nothing about. I’ll write you a silly song if you’re in a bad mood and there will be a cool picture and something that I tried to fix in there somewhere too. I’m excited to have the opportunity to welcome that first batch of campers onto the campground.
I am ready to provide a fun, safe environment for the campers to unwind and be themselves. There are many things that interest me and I wear many hats, but I always have room to try something new. I look forward to helping campers experience the joy of being optimistic and free. There is no better feeling.
