Meet the Counselors

Our counselors are as enthusiastic about games and technology as our campers, and come from top university programs in computer science, game development, and design. We run a background check as part of our counselor hiring process and all of them are trained to educate and inspire your child.

Definitely an exciting place to be.

Angelo Tordecillas
Hi! N_E_E_T here, and I am currently one of the lead counselors at Connected Camps. I’m a friend to all campers and am always excited to see the daily creativity from everyone flow into their builds! I’d rather help someone else build than start my own so I can follow through with what they have in mind and let the leadership in them take charge! If you need any help or want someone to talk to, please don’t hesitate to message me; for I am a also a camper at heart.

“Hello everyone! Quesodesupizza here! Your friendly neighborhood mod and friend of broadcast, as well as coding camp counselor. I make redstone stuff and other cool creations on the server and am always looking to come up with cool ways to make life fun on the servers overall! I like trying to build new and exciting things, and whenever there is something to learn or something to teach I generally like to pursue it. Recently I’ve been playing a lot of ARK and Overwatch, as well as working on chatbots!”

Volunteer Counselors


Hi! I’ve been playing Minecraft since early 2012. I love red stone creations and general architecture. I’m an 18 year old college student majoring in computer science. All around, I’m a computer nerd who enjoys programming, digital graphics, game design, and gaming. If I had to pick just one favorite part about connected camps it would be the people. As soon as I joined as a volunteer in 2017 I felt welcomed and valued by my other counselors.


Hello! My name is DarkKillerM, also known as Matt! I’ve been playing Minecraft since 2013. The first platform I started playing on was the Xbox 360 edition, and then slowly converted PC edition. I like working on massive projects, which involve detailed building and command blocks. I also like playing PvP minigames like Bedwars or CTF, and turning them into Youtube videos. I also like sharing my knowledge about command blocks with other people. Aside from Minecraft, I am a big Pokémon fan, and love listening to music. If you ever see me around, feel free to say hello, and ask any questions. I will be glad to help you.


Hi, my name is Collin and my user is Shallowbobbyss. I’ve been playing Minecraft for over 5 years now exclusively on PC. My favorite things to do in Minecraft is to play online survival with my friends and to experiment with redstone contraptions. Outside of Minecraft I enjoy solving puzzles and playing around with a lot of smaller games.


I’ve been playing Minecraft since 2014 (I think. It’s been a long long time) I usually play on computer but I also play on both Xbox versions and pocket but I hope to have the switch version soon. I loooove to build nerdy stuff. I once started building a Jager from pacific rim and I’ve tried to make some fallout themed builds. I’m a huge gaming nerd and comic nerd. I love Fallout, Wolfenstein, Watchdogs, Subnautica and last but not least, Detroit become human (even though I can’t play it). My favorite superhero is Spider-Man and I also love the show Supernatural. Chances are, whatever you’re into, I’ve heard of it. My favorite part about volunteering? The people. I love to help and share passions with people.


Hi I’m ChummyChutoy. I’ve been playing Minecraft for 7 years. I play on Java, Bedrock and console editions of Minecraft. My favorite thing to do in Minecraft is build adventure maps with my friends.


Hi! I’m Thomas! I’ve been playing Minecraft since 2015. I most enjoy doing Commandblocks and making crazy automated farms in Minecraft survival! In addition to Minecraft, I enjoy colony survival games like Oxygen Not Included and They Are Billions! My favorite part of volunteering here is seeing what sort of crazy things the campers come up with and build, it’s awesome to watch one of their projects come together.


Gabriel Iskandar
I have used Minecraft for about 5 years, beginning my journey on the mobile version, before progressing to the full computer version. I love almost everything about the game, mainly the unique way a player can shape a dream to a reality. I particular enjoy terraforming and command block redstone. When not playing Minecraft, I enjoy playing other random video games. I practice parkour with an incredible teacher, and have been self taught in beatboxing. Everything about connected camps is amazing from the staff to the kids. Being able to teach, and help uncover some hidden passions and talents within a video game and online camp is wonderful.
