Hi! My name is Natalie and I’m from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. I am an Exercise Physiology major at the University of Miami, with a minor in Art + Art History. I love all kinds of outdoor activities, and I’m really excited to be joining the Arts and Crafts team at CCB!
What are you most proud of/biggest achievement in life so far?: I am most proud of getting into college with a scholarship because otherwise, I wouldn’t have been able to afford going so far from home. I worked really hard all throughout high school to be able to go to a new place and create a whole new experience for myself.
What is your favorite hobby/sport/thing to do during your free time?: I love playing tennis, going hiking, and anything art related (especially ceramics and painting).
What is your favorite thing about working with children?: It is so refreshing! Spending time with children opens up all kinds of new ideas and ways of thinking; I feel like I learn as much from them as they do from me.
What impact are you most excited to make this year at CCB?: I am most excited to help the kids materialize their feelings and creativity into tangible works of art. Art has always been an important outlet for me, and I hope to encourage the campers to do the same.
What goal or camp philosophy do you really want your campers to learn this summer?: I would like the campers to learn how valuable it is to reconnect with nature, especially during these times. It is so important to be able to appreciate the beautiful environment around us without technology.
