My name is Cameron Acker and this will be my first season at Camp McDowell. I have visited and spent time at Camp in the past and I’ve absolutely loved it. I am originally from Moorestown New Jersey and came down south to Tennessee for school at MTSU. For the past few years I have been working in restaurants, which is my passion. I am an avid baker and cook who loves all things food. Last year I was fortunate enough to get to help a friend at their farm school program. I quickly fell in love with being on the farm and getting to teach and play with kids in that environment. I think it is very important to expose kids to what its like to work on a farm. It teaches them about the food they eat and the amount of work that goes into the process. Its also a beautiful sight watching twenty eager kids unearth a row of potatoes in record time. I myself am very excited to learn more about farm life and cant wait to begin.
