Staff Spotlight – Steven

Steven is the Activities Coordinator at Dream Oaks Camp. This Tennessee native found himself at Dream Oaks Camp after being invited by a friend to come work for a summer. Steven quickly fell in love with Foundation for Dreams and the work he was doing. After the summer ended, he chose to move to Florida to work more closely with us.

Tell us about your approach to serving campers.

I try my best to make sure all the campers are confident in themselves and having fun! That’s what it’s all about.

What is your favorite aspect of your job?

My favorite aspect of my job is the impact we are able to make on the lives of the families we work with.

Is there something that excites you so much it keeps you awake the night before?

Any type trip excites me the night before!

What would you bring if you stranded on an island?

I’m sticking to the essentials: tools, toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, card game, duck tape, zip ties, and rope.

What is your signature comfort food?

That’s easy, Tuna club from Wawa. MUST add avocado and extra bacon!

“Steven makes a lasting impact on the life of every camper he engages with. He works to create a positive environment where our campers can succeed. We are so lucky to have Steven as part of our Summer 2019 leadership team”
