Ryley Nyari

In-Camp Staff

Hi. I'm Ryley and I'm from Melbourne, Australia. Working at a Summer camp has been a dream of mine for many years and I am stoked to be part of the Camp Carolina team for 2023!
I love exploring the outdoors, spending time with friends, or having a dip in the pool.
I am a tennis tragic, having played nearly my whole life and turning that passion into a career as a coach, beginning nearly 10 years ago while still in school.
Alongside coaching, I have also worked as an education support worker for over six years across local primary and secondary schools, assisting children with additional needs in the classroom. Working with children day in, and day out and watching them learn, grow, and develop their skills is such a rewarding experience.
I'm looking forward to meeting everyone and having an absolute blast. Bring it on!!

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

I am most proud of completing my Junior Development qualification through Tennis Australia. This has given me the confidence to take on more of a leadership role within my coaching work.
What is your favorite hobby/sport/thing to do during your free time?:

Why tennis of course! But if you can't find me on the court I'll be keeping active either at the gym or out for a run. In my spare time, I love to go camping, take photos of the outdoors, and play board games with my mates.
What is your favorite thing about working with children?:

My favorite thing about working with children is that no two days are ever the same! There is always something new and exciting going on in their lives. Their curiosity and sense of wonder radiate to all those around them.
What impact are you most excited to make this year at CCB?:

I am most excited to help kids embrace new challenges and step out of their comfort zones. To help them find their voice and their passions, wherever that may be.
What goal or camp philosophy do you really want your campers to learn this summer?:

My goal for campers is to learn to enjoy simple things. To know that they don't need the latest gadgets and gizmos to be satisfied or content. Good things take time and effort, and not everything has to be done in an instant.
