Camp Staff

MEET THE TEAM

Rachel Blitz, Site Administrator

Hello! I am so excited to share my passion of teaching and helping campers enjoy writing. I was born and raised in Southern California. I received my bachelors from Arizona State University and double majored in Elementary Education and Special Education. I also received my credential in Cross Cultural Language of Academic Devlopment from Alliant University. I have taught both elementary and middle school. I am so thrilled to be apart of AIW camp and share my joy and passion for writing!

Arnold Vaughn, Assistant Site Administrator

Hello! My name is Arnold Vaughn and I live in Lakewood, California. I’m excited to be returning to the Adventures In Writing Camp. I’m currently a kinesiology major at CSUDH where I will be getting my Bachelors this year. I have been married for almost five years to my gorgeous high school sweet heart, Beth Vaughn. We have a beautiful son named Ernesto Vaughn. My hobbies include playing basketball, hanging out with friends and family, listening to music, and watching Netflix originals. I look forward to meeting you all this summer!

Cassandra Reveles, Adventure Guide (Counselor)

Hi y'all, I'm Cassandra Reveles, a Senior at CSU Chico. I love kids and I'm pursing a career in Liberal Studies (YAY for teachers) with a minor in Spanish. I plan on enrolling to the bilingual teaching credential. In my free time I LOVE to watch movies, anywhere from comedy to thrillers, just not anything scary. I also enjoy a good beach day, and hiking although I don't do it often as I'd like. I would say I'm a pretty cool, energetic, and very friendly person.

Brian Klemm, Entertainment Ranger

HEY HEY HEY!!!

So glad to be apart of this camp. I have been a touring musician for the better part of 16 years and working for Disney for about 17. I am currently a new father and am so focused on helping to mold small minds and set them on the right path by giving them camp experiences that they can take with them for the rest of their lives. I still have fond memories from my years at camp..... but that was about 52 years ago and they are still fresh.

I am a gentle giant 🙂 I look like a tattooed colorful cartoon character that somewhat resembles a mix between David Duchovny and Elvis. If they somehow had a child together that would be me 🙂 I love comic books! I have been a collector for over 25 years and I'm pretty sure it helps to keep me young.

Most important things to know about me:

I love a good fat lazy cat
I love a good book (the physical kind... not on a kindle or ipad)
I will forever miss the days of good hip hop music
and I will always be a Disneyland pass holder.

Music makes memories. so lets get to work!!!

Ava Weber, Adventure Guide (Counselor)

Ava Weber realized her love of creative writing during her sophomore year of high school. She started writing silly stories for her friends and found them asking her for more! She has deepened her love of writing by majoring in English at UCLA with the ultimate goal of obtaining a masters degree in screenwriting. She loves school, and wishes to share her love through teaching. Ava has taken French for five years and has gone on two study abroad programs to France. She speaks French conversationally. Don't hesitate to test her when you see her at camp!

Stephanie (Stevie) Tayor, Adventure Guide (Counselor)

Stephanie, who affectionately goes by Stevie, is an L.A. transplant originally from Michigan. Someone told her she was a writer as a kid and she believed it! Stephanie has been pursuing her writing dreams since middle school and is excited to inspire kids to pursue their love of writing!

Beth Vaughn, eBook Ranger

My name is Beth Vaughn and I am so excited to be apart of the Adventures in Writing Camp this summer. I have taught first grade for six years at Lindstrom Elementary School in Lakewood, California. I work at the same elementary school I attended from kindergarten to sixth grade. I also have the wonderful privilege of teaching with my mom who has taught for 36 years! My favorite part of teaching is watching my students grow throughout the year and helping them succeed. I graduated and received my teaching credential from California State University of Long Beach. I have been married almost five years and we have a beautiful one year old son who is the light of our life. When I am not teaching, I love to spend time with family. We all live within walking distance of each other! I also enjoy watching movies, fishing, playing basketball, and doing crafts. I really look forward to working at the Adventures in Writing Camp this summer and look forward to meeting you all soon!

Samuel Korobkin, Secretary of Shenanigans

Sam Korobkin is thrilled to be spending his summer with Adventures in Writing! Born and raised in Los Angeles, Sam is glad to be back in his favorite city. When he is not in beautiful California he is studying hard at Pace University in Manhattan. There he is working to get his Bachelors degree in International Performance and Devised Works. Last summer Sam worked as a traveling kids show performer, performing a 45 minute science show at birthday parties and libraries all through out California. He loves to bring a sense of ?play? into everything he does and understands that learning can be fun. Sam hopes to spark a unique sense of creativity in every camper at AIW. Bringing everything he?s learned long the way, Sam intends to leave AIW campers and staff with the memory of the most fun summer they have ever had.

Kalaya Campbell, Supervised Play Scout

Hi! My name is Kalaya Campbell. I am 18 years old senior at Alexander Hamilton High School. I participate in BSU (Black Student Union) and volleyball. I have two twin sisters and I live with my mother. I am African American and Jamaican. I speak fluent English and took a course in American Sign Language my first year of high school. My favorite color is blue and ombre. I am an independent, organized, and funny person. I have been taking care of children since I was a child myself. I had a babysitting gig with my best friend in middle school which earned us enough money to plan a trip to Catalina Island. In my free time I like to watch the Discovery Channel or braid hair. I am a pescatarian. I would like to influence the children I care for with love, openness, and the responsibility that they can be anything they want to be. I plan on attending West Los Angeles College in the Fall of 2019 to help my mom out with my sisters. I have two dogs whose names are Star and Violet. My favorite subject in school is English and African American History. On the weekends I either like to play basketball with friends or take my dogs on walks.
