Hi, my name is James (JJ). I live in Mobile, Alabama. I have been in the boarding program at St. Stanislaus High School. I have a spirit for adventure and have a passion for the outdoors. Most of the campers like me because I am fun to be around and I am funny. I loved my time as a camper at Camp Carolina because I did not have the distraction of my phone. Before I found out about Camp Carolina I was constantly glued to my phone.
How many years have you worked at CCB?: I have been to Camp Carolina for 6 years, 2 years as a CA and 4 years as a camper
What is your must bring item to CCB?: A deck of playing cards. A rain protector for my Eno hammock, because on the CA rafting trip it rained the whole night and everyone else had some kind of rain jacket for a hammock. The next morning I was soaked from head to toe. Jessie my counselor said when he saw me he said I looked like I was in a cocoon.
What is your favorite hobby/sport/thing to do during your free time?: I like to play Lacrosse. I like to get outside and explore what's around me. I like to throw the frisbee to my dog even though she doesn't bring it back
What are you famous for?: Always smiling no matter what. People have told me if you smile more than usual your face will freeze and I will really smile for ever
What are you most proud of/biggest achievement in life so far?: Hiking part of the Grand Canyon. Finishing the Art-Lobe Trail.
What are you most looking forward to about CCB?: The connection you will have with the campers, Meeting and seeing new and old faces.
What impact are you most excited to make this year at CCB?: The friendships you make with your campers.
What is your favorite quote?: “not all those who wander are lost.” J.R.R. Tolkien
