Hi my name is Rhino / Drumbledore / Black Mamba
I am from South Africa where I manage a lodge close to a big five game reserve, teach music, and tutor primary school kids in Maths and English. This will be my 4th year at CCB. I am passionate about music, love the outdoors and CCB has been my 2nd home since my first year in 2016 as a counselor there. I fell in love with white water rafting and wakeboarding during the years I have been at CCB and love to encourage kids to also try new things, because who knows it might be your next lifetime hobby or career. I am enthusiastic, passionate about life and all it has to offer, patient and I love to tell the kids stories and to hear their stories.
What are you most proud of/biggest achievement in life so far?: I am most proud of the work I have done as a counselor at CCB both as a cabin counselor and the head of music.
What is your favorite hobby/sport/thing to do during your free time?: I love music and practicing with my band. I also love playing cricket, soccer, going wakeboarding and white water rafting. I don't have a favorite out of these and love to be diverse.
What is your favorite thing about working with children?: The impact you can make on them that can last a lifetime. It makes it a big responsibility to make sure you have the right impact on them. The pure joy it brings both the kids and me.
What impact are you most excited to make this year at CCB?: I am excited to be teaching a new activity and to be able to bring my experience and leadership from being a returner to make camp as successful as possible.
What goal or camp philosophy do you really want your campers to learn this summer?: I want to inspire a new passion in them for life and I want them to do this while still staying True Gentlemen. I want them to treat each other with respect and to make great friends.
