Getting to know you...

This week I was thrilled to be paired with Meredith Stensaas, Assistant Camp Director at Mass Audubon’s Wildwood Camp in New Hampshire. Meredith has been involved in Camping since 2010 taking on all aspects of camp life from Outdoor Education to Summer Camp. While the majority of her Camp career has been at Wildwood, she has also served as an Outdoor Education Instructor at Camps throughout the Northeast. Meredith instantly struck me as the quintessential camp person- kind, intelligent, and warm.

It's a small world after all!

When Meredith first reached out to me to set up our conversation she mentioned that she had been to Fenton, MI before and actually knew where my camp was. I am well aware that the Greater Flint area is not a tourist hotspot so I was very intrigued to find out that her husband is also a fellow Michigander who grew up in the Flint area.

Not only is Meredith a super wonderful camp person, but she also sings in a choir and knows karate- WHAT?!? Also, as a long suffering Detroit Lions fan, I was thrilled to find out that Meredith is from Philadelphia and is an Eagles fan! What a pleasure it was speaking with her this week.
