A good staff is at the heart of any camp, and we at Camp Cedarbrook know how to pick great staff members! You can read all about our 2017 staff here, but we wanted to give you a more in-depth look at two staff members, one returning and one new!
Bird Name: Fireback
Position at camp: Horsemanship Specialist
Years at camp: 3
Hidden Talent: I am very good at “word unscrambling”-type games. For instance, I won a bridal shower party game yesterday for forming 98 words out of “Michael” and “Tori” in under ten minutes.
Favorite Hobby: I don’t know that I have a favorite hobby. Currently, I prefer any activity that involves relaxing in the sunshine, like sitting on a blanket, in the sun, playing card games.
What are you most proud of?: I made a delicious balsamic pork a few months ago. I wouldn’t this is what I’m “most proud of,” but it is by far the fanciest meat dish I have made. I wish I could have some right now.
Favorite movie character and why?: Olaf, from Frozen. Behind all the goofy silliness, he genuinely loved all those around him and sought the best for them.
Favorite quote: “She was becoming herself and daily casting aside that fictitious self which we assume like a garment with which to appear before the world.” (The Awakening, Kate Chopin)
What are you excited about for Cedarbrook 2017?: I am pumped to spend copious amounts of time hanging with awesome people in some great weather at a wonderful place.
If you could share a meal with one famous person, who would it be?: Does Ellie count as being famous? Because I want to share every meal with her this summer. 🙂
If you could be any animal, what would it be and why?: I don’t want to be an animal…
Bird Name: Mable
Position at camp: Counselor
Years at camp: First year!
Hidden talent: I would say my hidden talent is playing soccer because I’ve played it for fifteen years and also for a few years at the college level. It is so much fun and I enjoy the fact that it is a team sport.
Favorite hobby: I love playing the piano, guitar, and ukulele! (and singing, too)
What are you most proud of?: I am most proud of the opportunity to be blessed with a college education while also learning more about the Bible and my Savior. I am attend a college that requires Bible classes, which has challenged and encouraged me in my daily walk with God.
Favorite movie character and why?: Dug from the movie Up! That is my all-time favorite movie without a doubt.
Favorite quote?: “A sense of our own poverty drives us to Christ, and that is where we need to be, for in Him is our fruit found.” (Charles Spurgeon)
What are you excited about for Cedarbrook 2017? I am probably most excited about getting to know, encouraging, and becoming friends with different girls from all walks of life! Also, I am pretty competitive so I’m excited to be playing sports, games, etc. all summer long.
If you could share a meal with one famous person, who would it be? I would love to share a meal with Ed Sheeran. He has an incredibly unique music taste and I would like to ask him about his writing process, specifically about how he writes the music for his songs.
If you could be any animal, what would it be and why? I would absolutely love to be a llama. I grew up on a small llama/alpaca ranch and they have always been there to make me laugh; they have soft fur, are incapable of carrying humans, and they like hanging out in groups
Know anyone who would be a good fit for the Cedarbrook team? We have a few positions still open! Check the Employment page for details
