This year, we’re thrilled to have counselor Conor Lennon (above, right) returning for another season at Camp Spring Creek. Conor hails from beautiful Timahoe, Ireland, so in addition to being a fun, friendly and encouraging counselor, he’s also got a great accent! We caught up with Conor to hear a little about his experiences last year and what’s in store for this summer.

What made you decide to return to Camp Spring Creek?

I decided in the second week of camp last year that I wanted to come back. It’s a combination of things; the kids are all great, the location is beautiful, all the staff are lovely people, and it's just the right blend of challenging, rewarding and fun. I don’t really know how to describe it better than that.

What was the highlight of last summer for you?

The Color Run was probably my favorite activity. We camped out, had so much fun, and everyone enjoyed it. There were no problems or arguments— literally everyone had a great time.

What advice would you give to incoming campers? 

It's okay to be nervous. I was nervous! But everyone is really friendly and helpful, and you're so busy and having so much fun that the time flies by.

What should campers in your cabin know about you?

I know everything. I see and hear everything that goes on in my cabin. My spies are everywhere!

…winning competitions! I'm extremely competitive, and my teams won nearly all the group activities last year.

Which do you like best outdoor adventures or organized team games/sports? 

I don’t really have a preference. I'm competitive, so I get really into team games, but as long as I’m outside and being active, I’m happy.

Football! I started following the Panthers last year, just in time for their march to the Superbowl. Since then, I've really started enjoying the sport. I've watched a lot of games and I'm even reading up on it to try to understand it better!
