Program

 

My name is Alex and I am from Atlanta, GA, here in the southeastern United States.  I am a 28-year-old adventure seeker who loves to share my joy of mountain biking, travel, and the outdoors with others. I attended CCB 6 years in a row when I was a kid, and I know just how great this camp can be for developing an appreciation for the outdoors. Now I look forward to every minute I get to spend outside camping, mountain biking, rock climbing, and kayaking. I always try to keep my eyes on the trail ahead and on the next adventure to come.


What are you most proud of/biggest achievement in life so far?: One of my biggest achievements so far is mountain biking in the Andes of Peru at 14,000 feet. We took buses and trains to get to the mountains, then we hired a guide to take us up to the top of a 14er. We proceeded to descend 10,000 feet, snaking through mountain villages and towns on the way down. It took a lot the get there, and I am proud to say I made it there and back in one piece!


What is your favorite hobby/sport/thing to do during your free time?: I basically like anything that gets the adrenaline pumping, but if I could only pick one sport it would have to be Mountain biking. When I have free time I am usually mountain biking or dreaming about mountain biking.


What is your favorite thing about working with children?: I like working with kids because it feels like it brings out the kid in all of us. And I think we could learn something from the free-spirited nature of children.


What impact are you most excited to make this year at CCB?: I am super excited to get campers stoked on mountain biking/adventures! I look forward to bringing my enthusiastic attitude to every single trip, and making sure that every camper is having the best time possible every day!


What goal or camp philosophy do you really want your campers to learn this summer?: I want campers to continue to learn the value in respecting others regardless of background or upbringing. I  want to see campers create bonds and strengthen brotherhoods, but I also want campers to form new friendships, some of which may last a lifetime.
