Forest Lake Camp StaffWhat is your name? Julia Reich

Where are you from? Marine on St. Croix, MN

What is your role at camp this summer? I am a part of the Wilderness staff!

What activities are you excited to teach this summer? I’m very excited to explore nature and share my love of adventure! I’m also hoping to play lots of ultimate frisbee because it’s one of my favorite ways to spend my time.

What three words best describe you? Caring, enthusiastic, passionate

If you could be any kind of food, what kind would you be and why? I would be trail mix because I like to hike and I’m a little bit of everything.

What does working at a summer camp mean to you? I have attended and worked at a summer camp for the past ten years and feel that camp has played a huge role in making me who I am today. While this is my first summer at FLC, I am so excited to get to know so many wonderful people, to play a role in helping campers grow as leaders, and to become part of such a close, happy community.

What about coming to Forest Lake are you most looking forward to? This isn’t necessarily what I am looking forward to the most (I’m looking forward to so many things!), but I’m very excited to explore the Adirondacks with my campers because I’ve never visited them before.

 If you could be a super hero, what super hero would you be and what would your super powers be? I’m not totally sure what super hero I would want to be, but I definitely would want to be able to fly!
