Joe Collins


Hey Guys! My Name is Joe and I live down under in Melbourne, Australia. I'm super stoked to be joining CCB for what will be a summer to remember! It will be my first trip to the U.S so I cannot wait to soak it all up and make the most of every experience and opportunity. Sports are my main passion, no matter what the sport maybe I've been playing it or attempting it at least, for as long as I can remember. Melbourne is an awesome city to live in but you have got to make the most of the days when the sun is out, so being outside as much as possible has always been important for me. Living near the beach is a huge bonus because it is so beautiful and relaxing! I am so excited to travel to North Carolina and see all that it has to offer because traveling has always been a big passion of mine.

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

Completing my 13 years of schooling and creating unbelievable friendships and memories, I have always been proud of and grateful for it because it opened up so many incredible opportunities for me. Things like sporting and job opportunities or academic pathways have led to lots of small achievements along the way.
What is your favorite hobby/sport/thing to do during your free time?:

My favorite hobby at the moment would be playing golf! Especially because we just came out of summer here in Australia, so any chance I got I would be out on the course. I also grew up playing mostly Aussie Rules and basketball, so I have always loved playing those. I am also a big fan of watching sports as I love to keep up with all the scores and stats and what is going on with all the players, teams, etc..
What is your favorite thing about working with children?:

Seeing the joy on the children's faces when they are participating in something they enjoy is unmatched. You can't help but smile yourself when you see how much fun they are having. Being able to be a part of those experiences and to help them make lasting memories has always been my favorite part of working with children.
What impact are you most excited to make this year at CCB?:

I am most excited to meet so many new people, get to know them all, and be a part of making this summer the most fun and memorable time. To be able to have a positive and lasting impact on not just all the campers but everyone I may meet and/or interact with would be super special.
What goal or camp philosophy do you really want your campers to learn this summer?:

To help them find their smile and for them to feel comfortable coming to me for whatever they may need. The campers and I are going to have an unforgettable summer this year at CCB and I would love for them to embrace their surroundings, the friendships they build, and the memories they make. This is truly a special opportunity not just for myself but for the campers as well, so everything they will learn and experience will stay with them forever. Life-long friendships will be formed at CCB and any lasting impact I can make on the campers would be awesome. I hope the campers can really soak it all up this summer and have the most amazing and enjoyable time!
