Counselor Spotlight Take 2

    Counselor spotlight, spotlight on a counselor woo ooo wooo oooo….

    Hey, it’s Emma here (Watson that is) … After camp 2010 I headed over to Australia, to avoid winter for another year. WOO!! I have spent the majority of my time since, simply surviving extreme weather conditions. In this past month alone, there has been the longest heat wave on record, where it averaged 110 plus every day for 2 weeks, while at the same time there has been the biggest flood, and strongest cyclones in Australian record, and extreme bush fires.

    I have been living right by the beach in a place called freshwater. It’s the beach town where surfing was first introduced to Australia, so to fit in with the locals i have been surfing most days and gradually getting better.

    I have been working at a child care centre running after 3 year olds all day, but in next few weeks i am hoping to start work at a school for disadvantaged aboriginal children which will be great experience, and an eye opener.

    Before heading back to camp, i am leaving Sydney and spending a month road tripping up the Australian east coast to hopefully find Nemo at the great barrier reef, wrestle a couple of Crocodiles, and try fit in the odd bungee jump and sky dive, you know…the usual! 🙂


    See you all in the Summer!

    Love, Emma.
