Claire is 25 years old from Lexington, Kentucky in the United States. When around friends, she goes by “Claire-Bear.” Claire received a dual degree in English and Journalism from the University of Kentucky in 2017. She hopes to focus on international writing and teaching abroad. If Claire is not spending her free time outdoors, she can be found with a book and a pen. She hopes to teach the kids this summer how to share their stories through writing as well. The three things she can’t live without are Sour Patch Kids, anything Harry Potter, and music. Claire has grown up around “bluegrass” and rolling hills in Kentucky, but her dream superpower would be to live underwater. This summer, she is really looking forward to all of the activities on the water she will get to participate in with the kids. Most of all, she cannot wait to become a mentor for the kids she will be looking after at camp. She cannot wait to teach them, hear their stories, and learn from them herself. She is very excited for the lifelong friendships Camp California will bring this summer.
