clay-coddingtonHi my name is Clay Coddington and I'm from Manakin Sabot, VA. I am so excited to be returning to CMS this year for my tenth summer! I currently attend The University of Georgia where I am majoring in English and Spanish and will be attending graduate school at The University of Virginia to pursue my PG/MT in English Education. What I love most about CMS are the unplanned moments where you can sit back, relax and just enjoy being alive and surrounded by the beauty that is camp with the friends that will last forever. A fun fact about me is that I've seen The Avett Brothers about 6 or 7 times... I'm beginning to lose track.
