Ben Bunn

Ben joins us for his first summer on staff this year, although he has grown up at Camp Bear Creek. He started as an Explorer Camper and came every summer all the way through Counselors in Training (CIT) camp. This will be his tenth summer at camp! Ben graduates from high school this year and plans to attend the University of Iowa this fall where he will major in Exercise Science on the Pre-Physician Assistant track.

Ben is from New Sharon, Iowa. He likes to play sports, watch movies, hang out with friends, and stay involved in his school and community organizations. Ben is also a great dancer. He is a two time state champion at the ISDTA state dance competition in class I co-ed dance. Maybe when you meet him at camp, you can ask him to show you some of his best moves! Another fun fact about Ben…he’s left handed…kind of. He eats and writes with his left hand, but he does everything else with his right hand.

Listening and singing along to worship music in the car is Ben’s favorite way to connect with God. This summer, he can’t wait to be back at camp in one of his favorite places. Ben says, “I’m most looking forward to getting to meet and form relationships with all of the campers and my co-counselors. As well as making memories that will last a life time.”

Ben’s favorite Bible verse is Colossians 3:23: “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.”
