XTND to Camp America and Back

Danielle Jellicoe has life-long involvement with gymnastics from being a competitive Women’s Artistic athlete to Wellington XTND Graduate and now as the Head Coach at Kapiti GymSports (FIG Level 2 Senior Coach).

Danielle believes that the XTND programme helped her to break out of her shell, and meet lots of new friends from other gym clubs who she remains friends with today.  And give her confidence to look at other opportunities.

Camp America was one of those opportunities, which Danielle has attended for the last three years for 3-4 months each time. She is drawn back by the girls she works with, fellow counselors and the great facilities the camp had to offer. Find out more information about Camp America.

Danielle is a great example of how the XTND programme can not only help young people develop personally, but also open up their eyes to a wide range of leadership and employment opportunities, both here in New Zealand and internationally.
