Our Staff

Our team of camp directors work year-round to ensure top quality programming and
support for campers. We recruit talented and professional college-aged staff who are
passionate about working with young girls and have the skills, experience and maturity to
be positive role models. These camp staff come from around the world, are subject to
vigorous background checks, and participate in intensive, two-week trainings during our
pre-camp season. Regular evaluations and continual coaching ensure that all staff grow
in their professional development and job performance. Staff at Girl Scout Camp are
hard-working, fun-loving individuals who strive to make every girl feel “at home” at camp.

A lifelong outdoor enthusiast, I attribute much of my success as an adult to childhood summers at camp. My love for being outside led me to earn an M.S. in Environmental Education, spending two seasons as a professional sea kayak guide and traveling across the country and internationally. Originally from California, I love the Pacific Northwest and remain passionate about connecting today’s youth with the beauty and mystery of nature.

Fun facts about Cricket:

  • I'm an avid bird nerd that can ID birds by sight or sound.
  • I'm actively seeking cricket figurines and doodads to add to my collection in honor of my camp name.
  • I enjoy repurposing everyday items into functional art.
