Trapeze & BMX Counsellor
Hey Everyone!, My name is Luke and I am from Yorkshire in England. This summer I have been placed at Kennolyn Camp, Santa Cruz which is in the Monterey Bay, California.
I originally took part in the Camp America programme back in 2013, I was placed at a summer camp close to typical American town called Freehold located in New Jersey. When I first went to camp, I had the time of my life, literally! I came back home and all I could talk about is how great summer camp is, and about how many new things I had the opportunity to discover and experience. I would spend weekends visiting New York City, going to the beach, tubing down the Delaware river and visiting the famous hot dog man! I still talk about how great summer camp is, even six years on!
I decided to take part in the Camp America programme again as I am travelling the world and couldn’t resist going back to summer camp for another amazing summer! This summer, I have been hired to work as a counsellor at Kennolyn. I will be teaching flying trapeze, BMX biking and showing the campers how to care for farm animals.
During my spare time, I am part of a circus school in Sheffield. I have been attending this school for just over a year and still find it as fascinating and exciting as I did on my first day. My dream job would be to perform and teach circus aerial skills whilst travelling the world.
