Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and girls, children of all ages, today you are reading the bio of Mark Paterson. Summer 2015 will be my 4th summer at Coppercreek Camp, seems like yesterday I was preparing to come to camp for my first time. I am from a small town in Scotland called Clydebank.  Did you know that this town was bombed during World War II and was called the Clydebank Blitz? (Little History for you all!)

During the year I am a Soccer coach at The Celtic FC Foundation. This is a charity based coaching school where myself, along with other coaches, deliver Soccer and various other sports to kids in local communities. It is always great to see kids smile and enjoying things that they love and are passionate about. I also help coach the soccer team I play once a week, which is fun and a good experience for me.  In my spare time I am a gamer and a graphic designer. I am beginning to branch out onto the YouTube scene once again but that won’t be taken seriously until the summer is over and I am back home.Photo #2

The thing I am looking forward to most about this summer is coming back to my second home and seeing new faces as well as returning faces. It will be a great experience for those who are coming to camp for the first time and it gives them the chance to build up special bonds with others from around the world just like I did in my first year.Photo #1

Regarding things on the funny side, I tell the worst jokes, for example – “What’s brown and sticky? A stick.”Mark Paterson

Hopefully you enjoyed just a little snippet of my life and I hope to see you all this summer.
