Meet the General Counselors


Hello! My name is Sophie and I am from Australia. I am currently studying Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood & Primary) and I am thrilled to be returning for my third summer in the extraordinary world as a general counselor! There is no where else I’d rather spend my summers than by the peaceful lakeside of Echo Lake with the happiest of campers. Halloween, Cookout, 4th of July, and Bunkle Beauty are just a few of the all-camp activities I am looking forward to, as well as the immeasurable feeling of greeting your camp family on opening day. I simply cannot wait to return and see all of your smiling faces again! Yeah Vega 2019!

I can’t wait to meet everyone and get stuck into camp life! See you all soon!



Hi, I’m Cosima and I’m 19 years old. I come from a small town near Brighton, England. I am currently taking a year out of education before starting at the University of Leeds this September to study PPE (Philosophy, Politics and Economics). This year I’ll be coming to Vega for the first time as a general counselor and I can’t wait! My sister worked at Vega from 2015-2017 and I’ve been so excited to follow in her footsteps ever since she told me how much fun it is. I’m most looking forward to meeting and getting to know all the staff and campers, and just have a super fun summer!
