Rachel here, ADK’s Program Director. I wanted to introduce myself and tell you all how excited I am to see all back on the Peninsula this summer!
I currently live in Maine and I am working towards a Masters in School Counseling. I have been a Social-Emotional Learning Specialist in Maine public schools since graduating from Hamilton College a few years ago. I love where I live because I can hang out by the ocean listening to the waves crash on huge granite rocks, or I can go into the mountains and SKI (my favorite thing to do). This winter I went backcountry skiing every single weekend! Another thing I love about Maine is the ice cream–my roommates and I have a ranked list of every soft-serve ice cream place within 30 miles of our apartment. My go-to is vanilla-chocolate twist in a cone with rainbow sprinkles from Lib’s Dairy Treats, if you are ever in Portland.
I can’t wait to see you all at Camp this summer. I am excited to learn how to wake surf, because that’s something I still have yet to try since we got the new wake surfing boat two years ago! My favorite night of the week is Sunday, when we have Gathering on Sign Point. I’m looking forward to all of us watching the sunset together and reflecting about our wonderful weeks at Camp!
