Leonie Acker

Nickname: Leo, Lolle-Bolle, Bubu

Group: The Babes of Fundi

Hometown: Soelden, Germany

Position: Counselor for the duper girls

Favorite Activities: Gymnastics and everything in Bogle

When not at camp: I want to study nutrition science or product design when I go back to Germany. I also do a lot of gymnastics in my freetime, and I play the saxophone!

I had no idea you played the saxophone! How'd you get into that? Everyone in the village I live in plays an instrument; it's a tradition!  I thought the saxophone was the coolest one, so I picked it. I've been playing for more than 10 years now and I love it!

What's your favorite part about working at camp? First of all, I love the food! I also like being a little bit like a mom for the campers. I have the responsibility for the kids, but in a fun and friendly way. I also really enjoy teaching the activities. I also love the English language, so it's a plus that everyone speaks it here.

If you could live in another country where would it be and why? I think it would probably be the USA. I like the language, as I've already mentioned, and the houses here are so pretty! It feels like I'm in a story book.
