What is your favorite snack food or candy?
Twizzlers pull and peel… you can make braids out of them! And then eat them! It’s the perfect camp candy.

What is your favorite book or movie?
For me, its fair game between Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings. And obviously the books are a million times better than the movies.

What is your favorite camp activity?
Gah there are too many great camp activities to pick a favorite! Can I pick a camp day? Because colour wars are definitely my favorite.

What is your personal theme song?
Can I cheat the system and say what genre is my jam? Because big band swing music is my thing.

What is your greatest fear?
Losing sight of happiness, and pursuing something that isn’t fulfilling.

What is your funniest habit?
I sneeze in bright sunlight. It’s pretty annoying.

What is your most embarrassing moment?
There are too many embarrassing moments in my life for me to have a “most” embarrassing moment. (Kristen’s note: How about your camp birthday? tee hee)

When I have an hour of free time, I like to…
Sit down with a mug of freshly brewed coffee, and a good book!

Share in a few sentences what you are most excited about for summer 2014:
I’m most excited to spend time with my family, taking a break from the city, and working at camp again! I’m excited to be working with new people, seeing new faces, and experiencing new camp activities and programming! I’m excited to get started on some big and awesome changes to camp, it’s going to be a fantastic summer!

What is the best Maple Key tradition?
I think the best camp tradition is the closing ceremonies that take place on Fridays. Sitting around a cardboard fire, singing camp fire songs, and looking back at all of the things that have happened… It’s so great to be able to recognise the amazing stuff that campers have been doing, and it’s so rewarding to see new and old campers having bonded. It’s such a wonderful end before the weekend!
