Carson Barnes

In-Camp

Hey y'all! My name is Carson Barnes and I'm from Rome, Georgia. I'm 23 years old, a recent graduate from the University of Georgia, and currently living here in Athens, Georgia. I got my degree in Fine Art with an emphasis in video. I can't wait to capture all of the fun we'll be having this summer. I'm can't wait to meet everyone! I'm most excited for the climbing trips as that has been a hobby of mine for a while now but I also can't wait to explore new adventures outside of my comfort zone.


What are you most proud of/biggest achievement in life so far?:

After college, I started a nonprofit organization to give back to local artists and mutual aid to help support the community through music and art. To see how immediately that affects the people around me and my fellow artists has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life.
What is your favorite hobby/sport/thing to do during your free time?:

I love to rock climb (speciFically bouldering), spend time with friends, or create art however I can.
What is your favorite thing about working with children?: The ideas and passion that kids have when exploring new things reminds me what life is about. Working with kids allows you to bring out your inner child and channel that into whatever you do!
What impact are you most excited to make this year at CCB?:

More than anything, I want to be the person campers know they can always come to if they need to chat. Whether it's from being nervous, home-sick, or just to share stories that's what matters to me at the end of the day. We're here for the kids!
What goal or camp philosophy do you really want your campers to learn this summer?:

Just as much push yourself up a hill you have to be able to lay down at the top and watch the clouds. A balance of hard work and creativity keeps you happy and healthy! That's a mindset for life.
