Today is the first day of summer programming, and we are so excited to welcome all of our amazing campers to Camp Fletcher! If this is your first summer with us or if you’re a seasoned camp veteran, we know you’re going to have such a great time over the next few weeks. Our counselors have been training hard for this day, and everyone is so excited to get outside, have fun and meet their new camp family. Welcome to Camp Fletcher!
In honor of the first day of camp, we have another great counselor spotlight for you! This is the largest group of summer staff we’ve ever had, but we’ve been able to feature almost every single counselor that will work with our campers this year.
Today, we’re thrilled to introduce you to Magan. Magan is 21 years old and from Cullman, Alabama. She just graduated from The University of North Alabama in Florence with a degree in Criminal Justice and Law. This is her first summer at Camp Fletcher, and we know she’s going to have a great time!
What made you choose Camp Fletcher?
I chose camp Fletcher because of the nature of the work. I love the outdoors and working with children of all ages. Plus, the idea of working a 9 to 5 in an office just doesn’t suit me. Camp Fletcher is affording me the opportunity to do the things I love and hone my leadership abilities.
What previous experiences do you have that you think will make you a great counselor?
I think I can bring something different to the table as a counselor. I’m an incredibly passionate person who puts my heart and soul into everything I do. Also, I never had the opportunity to be a camper as a kid, so that makes me even more determined to be sure the kids have the time of their lives this summer!
What are you most excited about for summer 2015 at Camp Fletcher?
I think what I’m most looking forward to about Camp Fletcher is the idea that I get to leave a lasting impression on someone. Although I’ll only be in a child’s life for a summer, I can still make a difference by being a role model. I’m also excited about getting to know my coworkers and learning more about myself as a leader and as a team member!
We are so excited to have Magan join our team, and we know it’s going to be an amazing summer!
