Liz grew up spending her summers in the Roaring Fork Valley, she did everything from rafting, polar bearing, biking, hiking, painting the mountains, and making the whole valley her playground. It was only right when she joined Ajax Adventure Camp in 2014 as a camp counselor. Shortly after that first summer, she graduated from Boston University, where she received a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering. Liz decided to return for one final summer of fun as a camp counselor. While playing at Ajax Adventure Camp she has created a handful of activities alongside campers such as storm the tower, paintarchery, innertube wakeboarding, hula hoop painting, spaghetti painting, world domination, and many more.
After those last two summers as a camp counselor, Liz discovered her true passion lay in helping campers and counselors discover their passions and creativity. With that in mind, Liz began her work creating the Junior Camp Branch designed for 5- and 6-year-olds. Over the three years of operation, Liz created hundreds of different activities from mad scientist activities to spinning artist activities, to searching for mermaids.
After moving on from Junior Camp Director Liz became one of the Camp Directors for Ajax Adventure Camp, and now works year-round for camp to ensure it runs smoothly and can help inspire awesomeness outdoors.
Over the last few years, Liz has enjoyed rock climbing, hiking, painting, and creating countless activities. Additionally, she received a master’s in Adventure Education with a concentration in Camp Programming, from Prescott College. She has also earned her Wilderness First Responder Certification and her Tope Rope certification from the Professional Climbers Instructors of America.
