Grover Callisaya

Grover will be traveling to us this summer all the way from the city of La Paz in Bolivia (or as he calls it, the wonderful city!). He’s an Informatics and System Engineering major and almost finished with his schooling. He’s excited to have a little fun with us here in the United States this summer before he moves on to his career. He’s no stranger to camp life. He went to his first camp when he was fifteen years old. Since that time, he’s been helping as a cabin counselor at his church’s camp in Bolivia. He says, “Now, I am a Leader Coordinator of Christian Camps here in my country and I want to share all my experience at Camp Wyoming!”

Grover is a very outgoing and energetic person with many talents. He goes swimming every Saturday morning, and he likes to play volleyball and the piano. He also likes playing the drums, and even though they are quite noisy, he still loves rocking out at home. When he can, he takes care of his two cousins and is a teacher for teenagers at his church. When describing himself, Grover says, “I don’t know why, but I smile almost all the time. In any situation you will see my big smile and of course my two peculiar teeth. I am an outgoing and friendly person.” Grover is in his element when he is making new friends, laughing, and having fun.

It is hard for Grover to narrow down just one way that he connects with God. He likes to lead worship whether that be through singing, playing the piano or the drums, or even the guitar. It is a wonderful way for him to give God the glory and express gratitude to God. He also likes praying and leading Bible study or telling Bible stories through theater and drama. This summer, Grover is looking forward to sharing the Word of God through behavior and leadership. He has this message for parents: “Don’t worry about your kid. They will be in good hands. I will take care of them and give them the best experience of their life.”

Grover’s favorite Bible verse is 1 Corinthians 13:13: “And now, these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”
