Summer is coming closer every day and we're excited to introduce you to the wonderful staff who will be joining us! Today, say hello to David Colgan, who'll be joining us from Northern Ireland to work as a counselor. We caught up with him to find out a little more about what brings him to Camp Spring Creek this summer. We know that our campers are going enjoy getting to know David!

What do you do during the school year?

I'm a second year Biomedical Science student at Liverpool John Moores University but I recently started a job as a steward at Anfield Stadium (home to Liverpool FC). 

Have you worked at a camp before?

Back in my home,town, we have a summer scheme which I volunteered for last summer, so we took the kids everywhere from bowling to cliff jumping, which was amazing.

What made you want to work at Camp Spring Creek?

After talking to Steve, I did a bit of research on the camp and it was apparent that everyone was really close to and got on really well with one another, so it seemed to be a place I could work at but also enjoy working at.

Did you go to camp as a kid? If so, what were your favorite memories? 

When I was younger I went to the summer scheme I ended up volunteering for. My favourite part about it was meeting people from other communities that I wouldn't of met otherwise!

What's your favourite outdoor game and what fun games are you excited to share with the campers?

I'm very old school so it's hard to beat a game of tag, hide and seek or a water fight!

What would campers be surprised to learn about you?

I have the worst laugh in the world.

Note: (Now we are all very keen to make David laugh so we can find out if this is true!)

What can campers do to get on your good side?

I'm a big believer in "treat others as you would like to be treated" so by doing that they'll be in the good books.

Cat person or dog person?

Very close between the two, but dog person.

What's your favourite guilty pleasure food?

There's nothing better than some vanilla ice cream in my opinion.

David is great with kids and we know our campers are going to love spending the summer with him! Please join us in welcoming David!
