Rachel Carpenter

In-Camp

My name is Rachel, and I am coming to North Carolina this summer from Vermont. I am a school photographer and a pharmacy technician. I also do my own freelance photography work in my free time. I love going on adventures outdoors and exploring new places! Being a photographer, I would love to capture the best moments that children are having at Camp Carolina this summer!


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

one of the things that I am the proudest of is getting recognition for one of my pictures at a pharmacy I worked for. the pharmacy has selected one of my photos to be displayed in the pharmacy. 
What is your favorite hobby/sport/thing to do during your free time?:

My favorite hobby is taking pictures whenever I can. Last summer I really got into wildlife photography and I often like to go out and take pictures of birds, deer, and other wildlife. I also like making videos like cooking videos, hiking videos, and photography tutorials. Being an outdoorsy person, I love spending as much time as I can outside going hiking, rock climbing, kayaking, swimming, and mountain biking.
What is your favorite thing about working with children?:

My favorite thing about working with children is seeing the wonder and excitement they have for learning new things. I also think that it is very important for children to spend time outdoors and get away from screens and electronics for a while. I have two younger brothers that I love to go hiking, rock climbing, and kayaking with!
What impact are you most excited to make this year at CCB?:

I am excited to make an impact on the children and families of the campers at CCB by capturing the fun summer experience. I want them to look back on the photos and videos and remember why they love being at CCB and have memories that they can look back on forever.
What goal or camp philosophy do you really want your campers to learn this summer?:

I think it's important for campers to learn how to be a gentleman and see how they improved on things over the summer. I think that it is really important for them to recognize how they have gotten better at something over the summer, even if it's a little thing. As a kid, I wanted to be good at everything that I tried, but I learned it doesn't always work that way. I think it's important to recognize the effort and a child's willingness to push themselves and try something new, even if it's not perfect.
