When not at camp, Declan is either off counting mongoose in Africa, creating artwork in the style of the late great Bob Ross, or working as a qualified teacher in the UK. Currently Dec has been working for a Production Company in his hometown of Bristol, making TV shows for the BBC, Netflix and National Geographic.
Here we have some hard-hitting questions from past campers Declan – so make sure you give them some thought:
1) Is cereal a soup?
Absolutely not that’s ridiculous. Soup is warm and shouldn’t have bits in it.
2) Would you rather spend a lifetime counting mongoose or a lifetime painting like Bob Ross?
Bob Ross – I’ve done both and maths is not my thing.
3) Does pineapple belong on pizza!?
Absolutely not! You wouldn’t put bananas on a burger!
4) NASA is taking volunteers for a one-way trip to Mars, do you go? and if so what 1 luxury item do you take?
No – there are far too many (much cooler) things on Earth – Like mountains and Gruyères cheese. If I HAD to go and take one luxury – it’d probably be my camera, I go nowhere without it and would kick myself if I forgot to take it to Mars.
5) Favorite member of Camp Suisse?
It’s going to have to be a tie between Rosie and Steve – it would not be the same without you guys behind the scenes keeping things going (and coming up with ridiculous activities like 3-legged football).
Now for the serious stuff:
Dec…our first question has to be, out of all the fabulous things on offer at Camp Suisse – Banana boating, husky sledding on the glacier, the Aqua Parc – What is your favorite activity?
Well, what I really love about Camp is that there is ALWAYS room to be a bit silly. One of my best memories from Camp was when we me and a camper turned the ping pong room into a crazy golf course on an arrival’s day! We used everything and anything we could find to build obstacles – whether that was an entire library’s worth of books, a Jenga set and a hoover.
What about your favorite excursion?
For me it has got to be going to Villeneuve swimming pool for banana boating and paddle boarding. I grew up by the sea so it wouldn’t be summer without going to the ‘beach’.
