An avid swimmer, Reece can’t wait to spend his days at the pool, safely and responsibly watching over the kids. Funny and friendly, Reece has a passion for working with children. His past experience as a summer camp counselor proves that he knows what to expect at camp, and how to help kids excel in the camp environment. Making a difference in a child’s life is important to Reece and we are sure he will have many opportunities for that to happen this summer.  Welcome, Reece!

Coromandel, New Zealand
Josh is coming to Lindenmere for the first time this summer, and will be spending his days down at our lake. Lake life is a passion for Josh, having been surrounded by water his whole life. He learned to fish at a very young age, and can set up a rod from scratch and teach kids how to apply bait to the hook. He also enjoys canoeing, surfing, kayaking, and pretty much anything and everything related to the water. We know he will enjoy his time at camp this summer, and our campers will appreciate learning from him. Welcome to camp!

Lake

Limerick, Ireland
This is Grace’s first summer at camp and she is so happy that she can spend her summer down by our lake, participating in an activity she loves. Grace has been involved in her local rowing club since she was 12 years old and has always had a passion for it. She trained up to four times a week with her club, and took part in the National Rowing Championships in Cork, Ireland. During the year, Grace is working towards earning a degree in Primary School Education, because she loves to work with children, loves helping others, and teaching is a career in which she is sure to shine. We are lucky to have Grace at camp this summer and know our campers will feel the same way!
