Next up in our Meet the Counselor series: Reuben Bryant! We’re thrilled to have another Scot on board. Reuben has the distinction of being the only international counselor we’ve had who not only knows about but has played American football! He’s not only sporty, but musical, too. We asked him to tell us a little more about himself here.
Tell us a little about yourself, where are you from?
I am from Aberdeen, Scotland, where I am a part of Aberdeen University. I am in my third year, studying History. I am also a staff manager of a club.
Have you ever worked at a summer camp or with kids before?
I have previously worked with adults and young teenagers in social care before. I used to help them read, write, and other everyday activities.
What made you want to come work at camp this summer?
I have friends take part in the experience and I have only heard positive things. This will also be my first time in the US, which I am very excited about!
What’s your favorite group game/activity/sport?
I have taken part in multiple sports. I have experience in boxing, mixed martial arts, soccer, rugby and American Football. I also have the intention of starting rock climbing in the near future.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
I love reading books from all sorts of genres. I also have a keen interest in cooking and music. I currently play guitar but I also want to learn drums and piano. My favourite genre of music is Soul, but I listen to a wide variety of music. Then in my spare time, I just love spending time with friends, often incorporating my hobbies and spending time with friends together.
How would your friends describe you?
I like to think I am a positive individual and I am sure my friends would say the same.
What are your hopes for this summer?
I am incredibly excited for the experience. I can't wait for everything it holds in store.
