And what about these activities most excite you?  The activities that I will be involved in are camping, rock climbing, hiking and all other wilderness based activities. After having seen the surrounding area of Forest Lake Camp I am looking forward to going out into the wilderness and exploring new areas, camping out under the stars and building camp fires with the campers.

What three words best describe you?  The three words that best describe me are fun, outgoing and enthusiastic!!!!!!!!

If you could be any kind of food, what kind would you be and why? If I could be any kind of food I would want to be a pineapple because it gets to grow in a sunny country and is sweet and refreshing.

What about coming to Forest Lake are you most looking forward to? I am looking forward to coming to Forest Lake because of the amazing location and all of the activities that are offered to the campers. I feel extremely privileged to be able to lead camping and hiking trips in the Adirondacks and to be able to take campers on amazing adventures.
