Sarah Catherine O’Connell

Clemson University

1st year on staff

My name is Sarah Catherine and I’m a freshman at Clemson University from Nashville, Tennessee. I have always wanted to spend the summer at Greystone but was never able to attend as a camper, so as a staff member I’m sort of fulfilling my childhood dream. I’ve done gymnastics since I was little and then switched to cheer for middle and high school, so I’m so excited to teach cheer/gymnastics/tumbling. I am super high energy and I love organized games/events. I cannot wait to grow in my faith and be surrounded by such an encouraging, loving, and fun community this summer!!!

"Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ." Colossians 3:23-24

Personal Interests: I love to be involved and helping plan events and activities. I love spike ball, board games, cards, coffee dates, and anything surrounding the water.

When I have an hour of free time, I like to… watch grey’s anatomy, lose myself scrolling on Instagram, walk around campus, or bike through my neighborhood.

Something you wouldn’t guess about me: I grew up on a farm with chickens and I got a new bunny every year for Easter. I also am a huge math nerd and was on the QuizBowl team in high school.

The one thing that makes any day better: a surprise text or lil happy because I feel all warm and fuzzy that someone is thinking about me.

The camp food I can’t wait to eat is… ALL OF IT (this is my first time at camp, but everyone I know sings its praises).

Item that I MUST bring to Camp with me: Fairy Hair & disposable camera

My go-to pump up song: My-Shot from Hamilton

The best book I’ve read this year: Educated by Tara Westover

My guilty pleasure: looking for deals on Poshmark

The most famous person I’ve met is… Thomas Rhett Akins

My favorite cheesy joke: What did the sushi say to the bee? WASABEE

I wanted to work at Greystone because… I have always wanted to be a camper at Greystone and I just love the entire atmosphere of camp. I have heard so many good things about the Christian community at Greystone that I just had to experience it for myself.

The best thing about camp will be.. getting to meet so many new girls who are going to be a better follower of Christ. I am also looking forward to all of the camp wide activities.
