Meet the 2014 Summer Staff


Staff Coordinator  

Once again, the man is back. Say hello to old 8-Track. My fourth year at Holiday Lake, and as Staff Coordinator I’ll make sure it’s great. A senior Comm major, graduating in the fall. I scream from the amphitheater: “HOKIES ABOVE ALL.” My final statement will end as thus, welcome to the Holla Holla! Thanks for camping with us.

Hey there fellow 4-Her's! My name is Electron and I will be your Multimedia/CIT class instructor! I have been camping at Holiday Lake since I was 7 years old and don't plan on stopping anytime soon.

Beg. Swimming  
Hey everybody! This is my first year at camp, and I’m extremely excited to meet y’all. I will be your beginning swimming instructor, so if you can’t swim then you will be a dolphin by the time you leave. I’m a Music Education major at Virginia Commonwealth University, so if you hear a trumpet, it's probably just me! I can’t wait for this summer, get ready for an awesome time!

Natural Resource Education 
Hi, my name is Tamara and I have been the Natural Resource Education Coordinator at Holiday Lake 4-H Educational Center for almost 6 years. I graduated in 2004 from Georgia Southern University with a B.S. in Tourism and Commercial Recreation. During summer camp I usually teach Nature and Nature crafts. I have taught leather craft as well as low ropes, but this year I will be alternating weeks with Freakshow, teaching OLS and Nature!! I can’t wait to see you and explore the 4-H Center to discover all of the critters living here!
Freak Show  
Program Assistant  
"Aloha! Freak Show here. I am the Program Assistant here at the lake. I worked 3 summers on staff and now I work here full time. I am super excited about working with the new and returning staff this summer. They are all a bunch of goofballs and make the perfect team to make this summer an unforgettable one. 4-H Camp is the greatest place on earth! The average person laughs 10 times a day, but at camp we laugh 100 times a day! You'll find me out in the woods or in the Nature Room this summer. Chicken Little and I are teaming up to teach Outdoor Living Skills and the Nature class this summer. Its going to be one awesome summer you'll never forget."
Program Director  
Well hello there! I’m Salmon and I’m the Program Director. I fell in love with this place at a very young age and it’s hard to believe that this will be my 10th summer being part of the HL4-H family. Words cannot describe how excited I am about this summer! I know it’s going to be one to remember.
