Q & A
How old are you?
Did you go to TCBC as a camper? If so, how many years?
Yes. 5 years as a camper.
How did you hear about TCBC?
My brother had a friend who told us about it, and my brother Poncho has been on staff since 2015
How did you decide on your camp name?
Have three stories that lead to my name. First, my last name is Holcomb so the kids at school called me honeycomb. My dean Jiminy was thinking about names for me like a bee. Lastly, a friend of mine texted me this verse “Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones” Proverbs 16:24, so I decided to go with the bee theme and chose Bumble Bee.
What did you want to be when you grew up?
I would love to work with special needs children.
If you were stranded on an island and had to pick 3 TCBC staff members to rescue you, who would it be and why?
Oh, I would probably choose Riptide because I know that he would bring his backpack of supplies, Scotty because she would make me laugh, and Zulu so we can listen to some sick music on our way back!
