Robert
Sports & Fitness
I currently live in Pennsylvania, and am working on my certification to become a personal trainer. As a child, I was born with weak muscle tone, and struggled with coordination and balance. Through hard work and determination I was able to overcome my struggles, and played sports throughout school.

My passion for fitness, sports, and working with youth led me to Camp Shane. Working out is part of my daily routine and I look forward to a fun summer where I can share my knowledge and be part of something special. I am a kid at heart and am excited for the opportunity to spend a summer connecting with the campers!
