Alfred recently returned from his whirlwind Australian and New Zealand staff recruitment tour-and what a success! He recruited some amazing, mature, skilled and passionate Aussies and Kiwis-all who are super excited for June to come around so the summer of their lives can begin.
Today we are meeting a new golf counselor-Liam Diggan from Crawley (40 minutes South of London). Liam says “I am most excited about having a real community spirit – camaraderie is something that you don’t come across very often and I get the impression Camp Carolina provides this!!” His favorite quote is “It always seems impossible until it’s done” – Nelson Mandela.
The coolest place Liam says has been so far (and note he has never been to Camp Carolina!) is the Caribbean “the lifestyle in that region of the world is something I envy, nothing is too much trouble, everybody is so polite. It’s a very cool place to spend time.” He has two heroes. One is his dad, who he says helped him grow into a gentleman and shared his passion-golf, which is now a major part of Liam’s life. The other is Jack Nicklaus. Liam’s says “he is one of the few true sporting heroes and gentlemen. He is still so skilled on the golf course, has not yet been beaten and is unlikely to be surpassed any time soon. He is also a complete role-model off the course. He is a true family man and a real nice guy. Two things that every man should aim to be.”
Finally some trivia from his home town of London? The London Underground, was built in 1863, which is known as the ‘Tube’, and was the first metro of the world. It is quite possibly the most out of date, broken down and delayed metro system in the entire world.
We cannot wait for Liam to arrive at Camp Carolina and share his passion for golf, his positive attitude and be a true gentlemen role model to the young campers who will call CCB home this summer.
