Meet Jake Gillem, our counselor of the week!

Meet Jake Gillem, an upcoming Sophomore from Greenville, Alabama majoring in Fisheries! He was nominated by AnaSara Kipp, Cameron Carmello, Elena Wisniewski, Jessi Rogers, and Cara Borowski.

“He really opened up last week and showed his potential as an amazing counselor. He helped when needed and created a bond with his kids.” – Cameron

“Jake is always extremely positive and encouraging. Anytime someone said something negative or discouraging, Jake seemed to always have some kind of positive thing to say to build that person or the team back up.” – Elena

“Jake continued to keep up a positive attitude when faced with obstacles that most would shy away from. He always kept a smile on his face and kept the entire camp happy.” – Jessi 


If your life had a theme song, what would it be and why?

It would be Huntin’, Fishin’ and Lovin’ Every Day, because thats all I do.

What is your perfect date?


Why did you want to be a camp counselor?

I want to change the lives of high schoolers because mine was changed when I went to fish camp.

What is your favorite part of camp?
