  5. Most excited about For this summer?
    THE THING I AM MOST EXCITED ABOUT THIS SUMMER IS DEVELOPING MY LEADERSHIP SKILLS AS A UNIT LEADER AND BEING ABLE TO MEET NEW PEOPLE AND PASS ON MY SKILLS TO COUNSELORS AND TO CAMPERS ALIKE.
    I ALSO AM VERY EXCITED TO BE AN ACTIVITY LEADER AGAIN!!
  6. Favorite Camp core Value and Why?
    MY CAMP CORE VALUE WOULD HAVE TO BE NATURAL SETTING, THE REASON FOR THIS IS THAT BEING IN THE OUTDOORS AND PRAISING GOD FOR ALL THAT HE HAS PROVIDED ME. ALSO BEING ON THE LONG ISLAND SOUND DURING THE SUMMER MONTHS IS SO AMAZING AND WATCHING THE SUNSET OVER THE SOUND WILL NEVER GET OLD!
  7. Favorite Camp activity and Why?
    MY FAVOURITE CAMP ACTIVITY, HMMM, WELL I HAVE QUITE A FEW AS LAST SUMMER I WORKED AS A MOUNTAIN BIKING INSTRUCTOR AND CANOE INSTRUCTOR, WHICH WERE TWO AMAZING JOBS BOTH GAVE ME SUCH AN ADRENALINE RUSH FOR EXAMPLE SURFING WAVES, IN A CANOE ON THE SOUND!
    BUT IF I HAD TO CHOOSE THE CANOEING WOULD WIN THAT BATTLE AS EVEN THOUGH THERE IS A LOT OF WORK WITH THEM GETTING THEM IN AND OUT OF THE WATER NOTHING BEATS LOOKING OVER LONG ISLAND FROM THE WATER TAKING ALL OF THE NATURAL BEAUTY IN!
  8. Favorite parable?
    MATTHEW 13 PARABLE OF THE SOWER
  9. Best way to spend a Sunday afternoon?
    I TEND TO SPEND MOST OF MY SUNDAY AFTERNOONS RELAXING WITH FAMILY AND POSSIBLY IF THE WEATHER IS GOOD (RARE IN NORTHERN IRELAND!!) TAKING MY MOUNTAIN BIKE OUT FOR A RIDE. I THEN ATTEND CHURCH IN THE EVENING, WHERE I USUALLY VOLUNTEER WITH THE WELCOME TEAM WHICH GREETS PEOPLE AS THEY COME INTO THE CHURCH AND ALSO PERFORMS OTHER DUTIES THROUGHOUT THE SERVICE
