My name is Sam Walker and I come from a town called Hamilton in Scotland! I have recently completed my degree in Accounting at University, and I am currently working full time before heading to America for an amazing summer in 2021! 3 Words to describe me would be spontaneous, adventurous and outgoing!
An example of all of these traits can be seen from my experiences booking last-minute 24-hour trips across Europe. Being from Scotland, I am fortunate to have spectacular outdoor sights and activities available to me; this is something I have taken advantage of and used to build my love for the outdoors. I have great experience Hiking and Camping; however, I also have a love for all things sports and I’m looking forward to adapting this in to Camp 2021!
What are you most proud of/biggest achievement in life so far?: My biggest achievement in life so far has been the completion of my Accounting degree. This is a course I spent years learning & working on and my final results reflected the efforts that I had put in throughout the course.
What is your favorite hobby/sport/thing to do during your free time?: I have a love for the outdoors, and this is the groundwork for the majority of hobbies and sports I adore! The hobby I am most passionate about is my own personal travel; I’ve had the joy of visiting many wonderful places and it is a goal of mine to travel to every country in Europe. My favourite sport is football/soccer which I love to play on top of supporting my local team Hamilton Accies where I attend any game possible with my Dad. The thing I love to do most is spending time with friends; being in the company of the people I am closest with is irreplaceable and these are the people I support and the people who support me throughout life.
What is your favorite thing about working with children?: The best part about working with children is seeing them progress and achieve under your supervision. Watching friendships build and develop is a crucial part to working with children and is always something I look forward to.
What impact are you most excited to make this year at CCB?: I’m a very open person and I am thriving for the opportunity to meet everyone at camp in Summer 2021. I’m hoping to bring my own style of friendship and counselling to camp which reflects positively amongst everyone. I’m excited for the summer and can’t wait to meet everyone and create new unforgettable memories.
What goal or camp philosophy do you really want your campers to learn this summer?: I was brought up and raised to be independent, communicative and outgoing which I feel fits in with many of the camp goals. I’d love the campers this summer to leave with some of these traits I was brought up with. The most crucial thing to me however is that campers are having fun. When campers are able to have fun in what they are doing, this creates the scope for all goals, skills and traits to be gained in the most enjoyable way for the children.
