This year, along with other Miss USA title holders, I was a camp counselor helping girls prepare for pageants while having a blast in the Bahamas! Open to ages 12 through 17. This was 7 days and 6 nights at the Atlantis Resort working with Miss Universe Organization partners and staff.
Sara Brooks and I met in the Atlanta airport, and got to arrive to the Bahamas together. We got situated in our rooms and then that night we had dinner at Nobu, an AMAZING sushi restaurant in Atlantis. We got to meet the staff we'd be working with that night, then it was off to rest up for the next day!
Adrielle, Miss Arkansas USA, and I started our Monday by exploring Atlantis Paradise Island, and let me tell you, I now understand why they call this Paradise Island. We hit the beach and went through the aquariums and just relaxed before starting the camp at 3:00PM.
Then at 3:00, we went down to the Coral Lounge and met the rest of the camp couselors and the campers! This year Alicia Blanco, Miss Arizona 2009, Laura Chukanov, Miss Utah 2009, Nicole Johnson, Miss California, Adrielle Churchill, Miss Arkansas 2010, and Sara Brooks, Miss Louisiana 2010, along with myself were chosen as camp counselors for the Miss Teen USA Fantasy Camp.
Amazing view from the Bridge Suite.
The entire group on the balcony of the Bridge Suite!
After we got everyone together, we changed and went to the Bridge Suite for introductions and orientation. The Bridge Suite is amazingly gorgeous. It overlooks all of Atlantis and costs about $25,000 a night, minimum night stay of 7 nights. This is where Michael Jackson stayed. It had a breathtaking view! We did introductions orientation then went to dinner at the Market Place and then it was off to bed!
It was a great first day, and we had lots of jam packed fun for the remainder of the week! MTV Made was also following us around the entire week. One of our campers was being Made into a beauty queen. Be sure to check out the episode in a couple months!
