Senior Counselor

Hi, my name is Will and I am the lead counselor at SACC.  I also provide Office Support in many capacities, and am helping out with executing Bible Time during the school year.  I have been a part of the PCC community for 4 years, and have loved my time here.

 

I am very passionate about working with kids, and have been doing so since I was 16. I also enjoy playing basketball, speed, and football with the campers. I hope I get to meet every family that is a part of SACC, and contribute to a welcoming camp environment.

Christine Morales

Program Coordinator

Hi my name is Christine, and I’m the Program Coordinator here at PCC/SACC. I attended Canada College and got my AA in Universal Studies. I soon after made my way to SFSU and then ASU for my BA in Sociology/Behavioral Studies. 

I joined the PCC team in May of 2021. I was previously with Starbucks as a Store Manager/Supervisor in 2009 for 12 years. I have also worked with Boys & Girls Club for 3 years before leaving to Starbucks and I loved working with kids. I ran a tutoring program for grades 1st-8th and a ESL class for parents in the afternoons. 

 

Love spending time with my family, friends! As a new Mom I love spending quality time with my son and husband. 

 

Very blessed to have this opportunity in working with PCC/SACC and continuing my passion with my career path. I look forward in getting to know your families and campers!

Media & Curriculum

Creative Manager

Hi, my name is Maddy!  This is my sixth year working with PCC SACC and I am so excited to be a part of the office team.  I was a counselor for many summers in the past, but took over Bible Time last year and now additionally work on SACC's media and communication.  While I loved being a counselor and working directly with our campers, I am equally as honored to be able to contribute to SACC behind the scenes.  

 

I graduated from CSU Long Beach in December 2021 with a BA in Dance Science and a minor in Women's Studies.  I enjoy dancing, nature, anything artistic or creative, and cats.  I currently work virtually for SACC while I live in Long Beach, so you won't see me around much, but I am blessed to continue with PCC in any capacity.
