What is your favorite Camp Skyline activity?

I’ve been head of sports at camp skyline for the past three summers and I’ll be doing it again this summer!! So, I would definitely say it’s my favorite!! It’s a dream job of playing outside and laughing all day!

If you could be any animal, which would you be and why?

I thrive to be a manatee!! They play an important role in maintaining a healthy ecosystem, I actively try to do my best in empowering others to maintain a positive culture among my friends and coworkers!! Plus manatees just hangout and eat all day and I love that energy.

What is your favorite skyline memory?

One of my favorite memories is when one of campers got bit by a caterpillar. We were talking about it and she was crying, then all of a sudden she perked up and said, “this is the perfect time to ask Pickle for a pickle bracelet.” I’ve never laughed so hard!! Before I knew it, she ran over to Pickle and she got a pickle bracelet!!

What is your favorite camp meal?

Blueberry muffins for breakfast!!!
