Jake Meinel

In-Camp Staff

Hey there. My name is Jake and I am from Adelaide in Australia. I am so excited to be a part of the team at Camp Carolina in 2023! I love sports and am a massive fan of a sport in Australia called Australian Rules Football. I hope I’ll get the chance to introduce this to some of your campers because it is super fun. I also love music and have played the drums for 6 years. I cannot wait to meet all the lads that come and join us on camp because it is going to be an incredible time!

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

The biggest achievement in my life so far would be being nominated as the head prefect in high school. Head prefects were chosen based on their character, leadership ability, and love for others. I was very blessed to have been recognized as a good fit for this role during year 12.
What is your favorite hobby/sport/thing to do during your free time?:

Whenever I’m with my mates I love to shoot the basketball, kick the footy and play backyard cricket. I’m very competitive so when playing with my mates my favorite thing to do is WIN!
What is your favorite thing about working with children?:

I love how much energy children bring whenever I get to hang out with them. I love being able to just be in the moment with them and enjoy life for all the joy it brings without worrying about what tomorrow brings.
What impact are you most excited to make this year at CCB?:

I am hoping that through our time at CCB, I will be able to build strong relationships with the campers and staff around me. In doing this, I would hope that I would be a part of lifelong memories made because of the fun and character-building experiences we were all a part of.
What goal or camp philosophy do you really want your campers to learn this summer?:

I really hope that the campers leave camp motivated/inspired to help others, treating them as they would want to be treated. I hope I’m able to help show and model the importance of loving every single person we interact with.
