Niall Rooney

In-Camp Staff

Hi, I'm Niall. I am from Lincolnshire in the UK. I'm really looking forward to spending the summer with all of you at Camp Carolina. I am passionate about all team sports, especially Rugby. I coach middle school sports. I enjoy spending time with the kids and seeing them having fun and learning new skills. I love traveling and meeting new people. I can't wait to experience the summer with you all!

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

I played Rugby for 14 years at both local and county levels, I was captain of my school and local teams. I was also a prefect at an all-boys Grammar School. This meant I was a role model, supporting and helping boys from the ages of 11 to 16.
What is your favorite hobby/sport/thing to do during your free time?:

My favorite sport is Rugby. My family is from Ireland, making me an avid supporter of the Irish Rugby team. Other sports I've played and enjoyed are water polo and Football (soccer). I enjoy traditional pub games like Darts and Pool, but also enjoy board games like Chess.
What is your favorite thing about working with children?:

It is great to see how children develop and learn new skills. In team sports, for example, their confidence can grow allowing them to venture out of their comfort zone. It's brilliant to watch friendships form and see children discover hidden talents.
What impact are you most excited to make this year at CCB?:

I am committed to making this a fantastic summer, one to remember! I can't wait to get started.
What goal or camp philosophy do you really want your campers to learn this summer?: I want all the boys to have the best summer of their lives. This experience will help to develop confidence, self-esteem and a genuine love for the great outdoors.
