Ivan Timofejev

Nickname: Toe Jam

Group: The Redwood Ramblers

From: Leeds, England (but the first 10 years of my life were spent in Lithuania)

Position: Counselor for Freshman Boys

Favorite Activities: Longboarding, Free Swim, and Comic Strip

When not at camp: I make cartoons. I'm trying to sell that currenty, so that I can feed myself.

Do you have any hidden talents? I can train dogs! I've trained my dog to take the trash out. All I have to do is point at the trash and tell him to open it up, he'll take the trash and put it inside the bin.

Do you have any family traditions? My mom cooks a really nice potato, onion, and beef patty called Kakleta. They're only made on special occasions, but they're so good.

Why Campus Kids? I just wanted to check out the American culture and share my own culture with America. I also wanted to have a positive impact on kids' lives. When I was younger some of the older people at my church made a huge impact on my life. When I was younger I didn't realize it, but looking back on it, it meant to much. I wanted to do that for kids at camp.
