Summer camp kicks off in less than 50 days, and we’re hard at work finding the rest of our summer staff. We’re going to continue posting counselor spotlights until camp begins, so you can get to know every single counselor working at Camp Fletcher this summer! Today we’re introducing you to Hayden, and we’re so excited that he has joined us for another summer at camp.
Hayden is 24 years old and originally from Cartersville, Georgia. He graduates from Jacksonville State University on May 1 with a degree in Music Education. Hayden spent summer 2013 at Camp Fletcher, where he served as both a resident camp counselor and a lifeguard. We are so excited to have him back this summer!
What made you choose Camp Fletcher?
I chose Camp Fletcher because it was a great opportunity for the summer since I am becoming a teacher. I was able to take what I’ve learned in school and apply it to another job, and I’ll also be able to take what I learn from camp and apply it to my teaching.
What previous experiences do you have that you think will make you a great counselor?
I was in Boy Scouts as a kid and teenager, ultimately getting my Eagle rank before I turned 18. I had many summers at Boy Scout camp learning useful skills that I hope to pass on. On top of that, I am going to be a teacher so I have plenty of experience working with young children.
What are you most excited about for summer 2015 at Camp Fletcher?
I am excited for new campers. I enjoy seeing new faces that returning campers have recruited from their schools. A lot of children don’t get to experience a camp atmosphere, so this is a great chance for them to get that.
We’re also excited about all the new campers this summer, and we know Hayden is going to have a great time working at Camp Fletcher!
