What is your history with Flying Horse Farms? My first Flying Horse Farms experience was in 2015 when I worked as a cabin counselor during residential camp sessions. I loved it so much that I returned the next year and was able to serve as a Village Leader, which provided supervision and guidance for 3 cabins. Now, I am super excited to join the full-time team as Flying Horse Farms’ Volunteer Coordinator.
What are you most excited about in your new role? Volunteers are such a critical part of the work we do at Flying Horse Farms. I'm excited to find ways to help them have the best camp experience while they help make amazing memories for the children spending time at Flying Horse Farms.
To me, camp means: Freedom. Camp allows you to be yourself, push your limits and make connections that would not be possible anywhere else.
