Hey friends, I'm so excited to be coming back to camp this summer! Some of my favorite things include singing and playing guitar, dance parties, going on any kind of outdoor adventure and spending time with people, both old friends and new friends. I am very passionate about what it means to be the body of Christ and live in community together. I'm also a bit of a nerd when it comes to learning about people (hence the psychology major), so getting to know each of you who will be at camp is one of the things I'm most excited for. See you all soon!

Hello! Some of my best memories are from the years I've spent at Lake Beauty, and I can't wait to be out there again this summer. I'm currently in my first year of college at the University of Northwestern, and when I'm not studying, I love going on adventures with friends, cooking up meals and treats with my roommates, and reading. I'm eagerly looking forward to everything God has in store for this summer!

I am the shortest and youngest in my family. What I don't have in height I make up with sarcasm. I have been blessed to travel and live all around the United States which has influenced my love for travel and adventure. I love spending time with people, but I also like to be by myself and listen to music or watch a TV show. I absolutely love camp and cannot wait to be there for the entire Summer.

I love to go swimming, horseback riding, and snowshoeing. Recently I've been slowly teaching myself guitar. One time this past fall I was in a car going back to my college campus from town, and my friend hit a deer. She started screaming, but not me. I stayed true to my Midwestern self and simply said "ope". That's when you know that you truly are from the Midwest.

I love art and one of my biggest hobbies is thrifting and then altering the clothing in some way to fit my individual style. I'm really into antique and vintage jewelry, I spend a good bit of my time researching different eras. One time I got a little bit lost in London on a school trip because I kept wandering into different markets and antique boutiques. My teacher did not appreciate it too much but it makes for a good story now!

School: Solid Rock School of Discipleship

Major: Biblical Studies

My favorite thing is spending time with my friends. Sometimes that means playing active games, tubing (both water and snow), or just being outside. Other times that looks more like sitting and having deep discussion, reading a book, putting together a puzzle, hammocking, or just quietly enjoying each other’s company. I love my people and being with them makes me more happy than almost anything.
