General Counsellor

Hey! My name is Sophie Whitehead, I am 21 and I live in Leeds. I am a singer, songwriter, producer, pianist, actress and dancer that graduated from London College of Music in summer 2018.

I have been placed at French Woods Festival of Performing Arts in New York as a Camp Counsellor/Assistant Teacher within the music department. This is my first year doing Camp America but my 17th visit to the US, so I am excited to get the experience of doing something totally different other than having a vacation with my family.

As well as travelling, I love meeting like-minded people that I can make lifelong friendships with and so working at a summer camp seems like the best place to do this. My dream job is to work in the music industry, whether that be in business, management or as an artist. I hope while at camp I can really work on my leadership skills as this will help me in my further career.

If you follow my social media accounts, you can keep up to date with what will be the most amazing summer experience. If Camp America is something you are looking to do next year I hope my participation will encourage you to apply!​
