How many years have you been with SoundWaters?

This upcoming summer will be my 4th year as a Camp Counselor at SoundWaters. I have also been an intern at SoundWaters through the SoundGeneration Program.

What is your favorite part about being a camp counselor?

My favorite part about being a lead camp counselor is being able to teach the kids about Long Island Sound and watching their sailing skills progress over the course of the program.

What is your favorite camp week theme?

My favorite camp week theme is Carnival week! The dunk tank and carnival games at the end of the week are so much fun.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

In my spare time I love to travel and read books. One of my goals is to travel to all 50 U.S. states.

Whats your school/major?

I go to the University of Connecticut and I am planning to major in elementary education.

Name one fun fact about yourself.

One fun fact about myself is that I’m scared of heights but I recently overcame that when I went parasailing.
