Meet the Summer Staff 2016 – Part 2

Posted on Nov 8, 2015

1. What’s your name?
Bradley, but everyone calls me Brad, I go with Brad.

2. Where are you from?
I live in a small borough in the city of Liverpool, Merseyside, United Kingdom.

3. What university/school do you attend? What major?
I attend Edge Hill University in Lancashire and I am in first year of study, where I study Public Relations as my major with Politics as my minor. I am hoping to get into journalism once I have graduated.

4. What’s your favorite country/state?
U.S. by far, is my favorite country. State wise, there is too many !! I’m currently ticking of them my list, one bye one. Last year however, I had the privilege of traveling through 13 different states, highlights include, NY, TN, MA and NV.

5. What’s your favorite camp activity and why?
Having attended a summer camp last year as a general camp counselor and taking part in all activities from water, art, sport and drama, I am generally looking forward to again, getting involved with all activities, but I believe I’ll be life-guarding next year so I am very looking much looking forward to specializing in that.

6. What are you most looking forward to about next summer and why?
Generally, everything. I am looking forward to helping create a fun, loving and memorable summer with my co-counselors for the children that are attending camp next year and watching them grow in skill and confidence and having a summer of a life-time.

7. What’s your favorite camp core value (Community, Christian, Formation, Developing Leaders or Natural Setting) and why?
I love all of Camp DeWolfe’s core values however, to go with a favorite I’d have to say Developing Leaders. I am very much looking forward to seeing the children reach their full potential and assisting them with this. I think it’s important that everyone, is treated equally and and has the opportunity to develop and be encouraged to reach their full potential to the best of their ability. Camp is a great community and environment to allow the campers and also staff, to do this.

8. What’s your dream job/vocation/calling for life?
Honestly, right now I believe it’s journalism but my degree is so open that it could lead me anywhere. Right now I am just enjoying the achievement of getting into university to study a degree which I am highly enjoying and which will hopefully get me to my dream career. I am always used to having a plan but right now, I don’t have a plan, so we will see what happens. As long as my career involves traveling, I will be happy.
