Feature Friday- Sean

Another day to celebrate CYC! Starting this week every Friday we will feature a member of the CYC family! Campers staff alumni nurses & even whole families have been contacted to tell us why they love being a part of the CYC Family! 

Often people think that camp is just for the kids but camp has been home to thousands in all different ways. Even if you haven’t stepped on camp property in a while you are still part of the CYC Family! 

This week we feature SEAN! Sean was the Assistant Program Director last summer he has been onstaff before as a counselor & working with teens. Before putting on the coveted "Professional Role Model" shirt Sean was a camper! He is a great example to kick off "Feature Fridays"! 


Q: What do you do now? How has your history with CYC helped you with your current profession?

A: I work as an AmeriCorps Farm to School Educator at Urban Roots Garden Classrooms in Reno NV. Since being at CYC I have moved to Reno NV to work as an AmeriCorps farm educator at a teaching farm called Urban Roots. Every day I need to think on my feet because anything can happen when you are working with plants animals and a group of kids. Working at CYC has taught me to think ahead to prepare for anything as well as handle the unexpected when it happens. Teaching a variety of activities at camp built up the confidence in me to teach a range of topics in Reno schools.


Q: What is your favorite CYC memory?


A: My favorite memory was watching the multi-stage Survivor-esq challenge during Teen Takeover week.


Q: Where is your favorite place at CYC?

A: My favorite place at camp is the swim beach at nighttime to watch the stars.


Q: What does it mean to be part of the CYC family?

A: Being part of the CYC family means always having a place to call home at camp.


Q: Describe CYC in ONE word!

A: Ebullient (Yeah I went to college. I know how to use a thesaurus.)

"To me, CYC is a place where I can really be myself and make new friends. At CYC, I feel safe and happy. The counselors at camp have inspired me. I feel closer to God since my experience at CYC." - Anna
