Big Walnut Sandlot Camp Director - Charlie Smith
Jody Grieger, Assistant Camp Director
Brady Prugh, Camp Counselor
I am in my 12th year of teaching and am currently teaching at Big Walnut High School. I have been a football and track coach for the last 11 years. I have had the opportunity to coach at all levels, ranging from middle school to college age. I enjoy watching kids grow not only academically but athletically as well. My brother and I started this camp 14 years ago in a nearby school district. This camp was designed as a way to get kids active during the summer and build relationships with other kids in their community. I hope your child enjoys this camp as much as I have enjoyed working with kids at these camps.
This is my 8th year teaching Physical Education in Big Walnut Schools. Prior to teaching in Big Walnut, I taught middle school physical education in Gahanna-Jefferson for 5 years. I have experience coaching middle school, volleyball and softball as well as high school soccer. Building character and relationships through sports is a passion of mine and I believe this camp is going to help the kids build not only that but their self-esteem as well. This is my 5th year with sandlot sports camp and I am excited to see all the fun the kids are going to have this summer!
I am currently in my 5th year in education and 2nd year teaching Physical Education and Wellness at Big Walnut. I also coach basketball at Big Walnut Middle School. I have a passion for working with kids and helping them grow academically, athletically, and socially. This is my second year being part of Sandlot Sports Camp and I am excited for another summer of fun at camp!
