Student Spotlight: Jared Lake

Posted by David Quintanilla on May 19, 2014 2:00:00 PM

Jared’s Lake’s bright neon yellow shirt and neon shoelaces are a great reflection of Jared, in essence, you can’t miss this student at Julian Krinsky Camps & Programs. Jared’s infectious smile, and spunky attitude have made this eleven-year-old a stand out to other players and counselors at this year’s tennis camp. To no surprise, this outspoken and friendly first year student enjoyed sitting down and chatting with us about, in his own words, “the best summer of [his] life.” Jared_Lake_Tennis


Jared made the journey from his home in Long Island, New York to Haverford’s campus to refine his skills in tennis and enjoy his summer. Jared is no stranger to summer camps and, because of that, knew what he wanted in a summer camp. He liked the idea of coming to JKCP so that he could focus on one activity and really dive into it, rather than simply scratch the surface of a sport that he enjoys. “I really just wanted to play tennis and focus on just that instead of other activities at camp,” says Jared.

Dorm Room Villanova

College is often the first time many teenagers leave the comfort of their bedroom and watchful eye of guardians to venture into an unknown habitat of a college dorm. While friends, relatives, and just about everyone one else you know will tell you what it is like to live in a dorm, the only way to quite understand just how unique of an experience living away from home can be is to try it. The campers at the Julian Krinsky Camps & Programs have the benefit of experiencing dorm life firsthand prior to ever starting their freshman year of college.
