Kerise is joining us this summer all the way from Perth, Australia! She’s lived in Australia for the past four years, but before that, she grew up in Pietersberg, South Africa. It was in South Africa where she first developed a love for summer camps. She had the opportunity to attend camp as a young child, and she loved her experience there. She says, “I always enjoyed every part of it, especially the teamwork activities.” This summer, she is excited to come to Camp Wyoming, to experience a new culture and place, and especially to work with the kids and participate in activities with them. She said she loves being outdoors and getting muddy, so she’s definitely looking forward to creek stomping!
Kerise just recently graduated from Mindarie Senior College. She loves photography and wants to be a photographer when she grows up. In her free time, she says, “I love to go to the beach for a quick swim, watch a movie with friends and family or just to go on little roadtrips and discover beautiful scenery to capture with my camera.” Her favorite way to connect with God is through singing and going for walks in nature to pray and talk to God on her own. She’ll love the natural setting at Camp Wyoming and the chance to sing each evening during worship.
Kerise’s favorite Bible verse is 2 Timothy 1:7: “For God has not given us a spirit of fear but love, power and a sound mind.”
