Jon Collazo

Program Director

Utah Adventure Program

How did you get involved with Camp One Step?

I first heard about Camp One Step from Erin H. who raved about how amazing COS is and told me I had to see it for myself. So I volunteered for Utah Ski in 2020 and was immediately blown away by the Campers & Volunteers and from then on was hooked on the COS Community.

How long have you been involved with our organization?

I have been part of the Camp One Step organization since 2020 when I was a volunteer for the Utah Ski Program in Park City, UT.

What volunteer roles have you held (includes volunteering for a Camp One Step event or TOS)?

Volunteer Counselor for Utah Ski, Summer Camp Virtual & Winter Camp Virtual

What keeps you coming back to Camp One Step?

The Camp One Step community is one of a kind. From the positive energy to the constant smiles, it’s hard not to keep coming back.

What do you love the most about the program you lead?

I have never personally been on the Utah Adventure Program but what drew me to apply for the leadership position was Adventure aspect of the program. I am an adventure fanatic and love camping, hiking, really anything outdoors and being able to bring that sense of adventure to the campers for a week is something that I’m very excited about.

What are some words of wisdom or advice that you would give campers?

#1 HAVE FUN!

Camp is a place where you can feel comfortable trying new things. It opens the door for a lot of opportunity to make new friends, experience new adventures, and make memories that last a lifetime.

What are some words of wisdom or advice that you would give new or interested volunteers?

#1 HAVE FUN!

There are no words for how amazing the campers are and they truly make our jobs as volunteers easy. Create a connection with the campers and the rest will take care of itself. If you have hesitations about applying… don’t hesitate, apply! You’ll thank me later J
