Q&A with the Counselors

November 2, 2016

Sophia Fish

Q: How many years have you been a counselor at sixth grade camp?

A: I have been a camp counselor twice if you count being a C.I.T.

Q: Why did you become a counselor?

A: The reason I became a counselor this year especially is because I remember when I was a camper that both my C.I.T. and counselor made it such an enjoyable experience for me, and some of my friends told me that they didn’t enjoy camp because of their counselor and I made a goal that day to become a C.I.T. and counselor to hopefully make a camper want to come back again — as my counselor did for me.

Q: What is your favorite memory from sixth grade camp this year?

A: My favorite memory this year, this is a tough one. There’s so many good memories from this year. If I had to choose it would probably be either being ‘married’ to my CO, Kenndi Stewart, who is an incredible leader as well as my C.I.T., Lexi Gomez Smith, or hearing one of my kids say to me. “I want to come back Fish!” Those two moments made my week and can’t wait for the next two years!”

 

Jack Snodgrass

Q: How many years have you been a counselor at sixth grade camp?

A: I have been a counselor for two years, sophomore and senior year.

Q: Why did you become a counselor?

A: I decided to become a counselor because I love kids and it’s a great time to take a week off [from school] and have fun with friends.

Q: What is your favorite memory from sixth grade camp this year?

A: My favorite memory from this year is the closing campfire, [which was ] when all the
counselors were gathered around the fire singing ‘Lean on Me.’

 

Rahul Kirkhope

Q: How many years have you been a counselor at sixth grade camp?

A: This year was my second year as a counselor.

Q: Why did you become a counselor?

A: I became a counselor because my sister had always spoken well of the community and the experience surrounding camp, [so] I wanted to find out for myself [what she had always spoken about].

Q: What is your favorite memory from sixth grade camp this year?

A: My favorite memory from this year was the marriage ceremony in which I was placed in.

 

Stephanie Villaire

Q: How many years have you been a counselor at sixth grade camp?

A: I have [been] a counselor at camp for three years.

Q: Why did you become a counselor?

A: Actually in sixth grade during a parent-teacher conference my teachers told my mom that I should come back as a CIT. So I did, and I fell in love with camp and have been coming back ever since.

Q: What is your favorite memory from sixth grade camp this year?

A: My favorite memory from this year is probably all of the counselor bonding. It’s so rewarding to work towards bonding with a group of people and see yourselves becoming a family.
