Nicholas is 17 years old. He stood out this summer due to his eagerness to learn and offer to lend a hand to staff in any capacity. He was very receptive to coaching from staff and taking on new assignments. He was a great example to his peers and as a Jr. Counselor, very dependable, quick to learn, responsible and accountable for his actions. He was very well liked by the camp participants and staff and stood out on field trips by taking initiative with safety by ensuring our campers were accounted for and engaged in the activity/tour presented. At the beginning of the summer, he assisted staff with large group, high intensity games and by August he led these games and staff assisted him.
Nicholas took great advantage of the opportunity to be trained and gain experience working with youth. We are encouraged by his progress this summer and saw him as the ideal outcome to why STAR Leadership was created.
