2018 Summer Staff Highlights: Gregor

As Grands Camp Coordinator, camp photographer and second year veteran on the Clearwater Forest summer staff, Gregor is a familiar face everyone at camp has come to love! A man of many talents, he comes to us all the way from Scottland, where he has recently completed his degree in Physics. While he did not win any tournaments playing golf in high school (in fact, he doesn’t golf at all!), he does know a thing or two about winning money in the New Zealand lottery. He was also lucky enough to meet Princess Anne, the Queen’s daughter!

For now he is enjoying spending his summer in an amazing place with amazing people, growing closer to God, and hopefully helping others to do the same. Read on to learn more about our favorite photographer, physicist and all-around good guy: Gregor!

What’s your favorite thing about Clearwater?
Definitely the people, both campers and staff. Returning this Summer really did feel like coming home!
What do you do when you’re not at camp?
I’ve just finished a degree in Physics at University, and in September I’ll be starting a job in the nuclear energy industry. Music is a big part of my life – I play violin, ukulele and also sing in choirs. I’m also involved in my local Church, and one of the best things about being in the US all summer is getting to visit various different churches in different places!
Favorite camp song?
I love so many of them! But “Eagle’s Wings” at evening worship always makes me stop and appreciate how lucky I am to be here for the summer.
What’s on your current playlist?
Impossible to narrow down! I love so many different genres, but I listen to classical most of the time. I’d highly recommend the 4th movement of Mahler’s 5th Symphony. I like to listen to it when I’m laying out on the dock on my time off, and it never fails to take me to a whole other place. Look it up and give it a listen!
If you had a time machine would you go back to the past or ahead to the future and why?
Probably the past, to see how people used to live and what life was really like. I suspect it was quite different from what we’re led to believe in movies and on TV.
