Counselor Spotlight: Welcome Back Rachel!


That’s right – camp starts in just ONE WEEK, and we could not be more excited! We kicked off counselor training this weekend, and our summer staff is so excited to meet all of our amazing campers next Monday. If you haven’t registered yet, there are still a few spots left, but you must register ASAP. Visit us online or contact the camp office today for more information about availability & how to register!

In honor of staff training, we’ve also got a brand new counselor spotlight for you. We’re so excited for you to meet Rachel!

Today we’ve got another amazing counselor spotlight for you! Rachel is 22 years old and from McCalla, Alabama. She just graduated from Jacksonville State University with a degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education. Rachel grew up just a few miles from Camp Fletcher, and she will be returning this summer as a counselor for her 5th year. We are so glad to have Rachel back, and we know it’s going to be a wonderful summer!

What made you choose Camp Fletcher?
Originally, I chose Camp Fletcher as a transition between high school and college. However, what I found was much more than a transition. I found a home, a family, and a love for the camp experience. It’s the camp family and living the Camp Fletcher experience that keep me coming back year after year.

What previous experiences do you have that you think will make you a great counselor?
Besides working at Camp Fletcher for the previous four summers, I spent the last five semesters of school working with and teaching children in a classroom setting. I’ve worked with the children at my church for as long as I can remember, and I pretty much grew up outdoors.

What are you most excited about for summer 2015 at Camp Fletcher?
I’m most excited about being with my Camp Family—new and old—as we lead the campers into the best summer ever of living the Camp Fletcher experience.

We’re so glad Rachel is joining us again this summer. We can’t wait to meet all our campers in seven short days!
