Jakub Glowala
Unit leader, camp promise-East

When was your first year at Camp Promise?
Summer of 2015 for Camp Promise-East and 2016 for Camp Promise-West. 

Why do you keep coming back to camp?
To see all the great people that I have met and befriended over the years. And, it is one of the only places where it is socially acceptable to make a fool of myself and dress in wacky costumes for a week.

What's your favorite camp theme day and why?
The Secret Garden dance was my favorite. It was technically a themed dance, but dressing up as a sunflower was a blast and distracted people from my sub-par dance moves.
What's your favorite camp memory?
Probably my first experience at Kangaroo Court. I went into it fully expecting to be safe from mischief, but the campers were of a different mindset…

If we did a talent show right now, what would your talent be?
Karaoke, for sure. Mind you, my talent is not my singing, but my ability to pull in additional singers and dancers and embarrass myself thoroughly.

What’s your day job?
I graduated from Villanova University in the spring of 2017 and am now in medical school.

Anything else you want the world to know?
Becoming part of the Camp Promise family has been one of the greatest decisions I’ve made, and if you are considering joining us in the slightest, give it a shot. You will not regret it!
