Alice Matthews

Activity Instructor - 2nd Year - England

wisconsin-boys-camp

Hiiii, I’m Alice and I’m 22 from England, currently in my final year of University in Leeds, studying Physical Education with Outdoor Education. This will be my second summer at the friendly confines :p I’m sure you will find me all over the place, from the top of the zip-line to archery! I will also be helping to develop and deliver The Survival Skills program for its second year! See you all in June for another amazing summer :))

Hey! My name is Rachael, I am 22 years old, from south east London, England. This is my first Sumer at Menominee and I am so excited to meet all of you, and get to experience camp for the first time. I will be spending a lot of my time at camp down at the waterfront! Currently at home I am a full time Lifeguard, and I have been since I was 16 years old. In 2022, I qualified as a swim teacher to help share my passion for the water to children by being a vital starting point in their water journeys. I cannot wait to be able to share my passion of the water with you at Menominee, and I cannot wait for you guys to teach me some tricks I know that you're hiding up your sleeves. Outside of water-sports, I love to roller-skate. I support Michigan Wolverines (even though I have no understanding of American football.. just yet!), and I love Taylor Swift! So let's 'shake it off' at Camp Menominee and 'just keep swimming' our way through the summer. Go Green!
