Favorite Delanco Camp memory: “Summer of 2007. The power went out one night during Jr. High Three. All the campers were sitting down on the floor, and we didn’t know what to do. Mike D, the leader singer/guitarist for Tenth Avenue North, said, “hey guys, lets make rain.” He asked everyone to be very quiet. He had some people clap, some people snap, and some people stomp their feet. It sounded so cool, and then the lights came back on! ha ha ha, fun times.”
Bible verse you think speaks most to where you are right now: “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future” -Jeremiah 29:11. This verse speaks the most to where I am right now because I am just finishing high school, and starting a new chapter in my life by going to college. Life gets a little crazy around this time, and I know in the end of everyday — it is His plan, not mine.
Do you have a hidden talent? I can pull my thumb behind my knuckles, and it looks insane.
When did you become a Christian? At Pemberton’s First Baptist Church, when I was about 8 years old.
What made you want to work at camp this summer? I felt that God was calling me to another great summer of serving Him at Delanco Camp.
What are you looking forward to most this summer? I am looking forward to some new Permanent Staff faces, along with some new Deans.
Name something unique about you that didn’t come up in your permanent staff interview: My best golf score for 9 holes is a 40.
