Rachel Kelly

Kiyi, The days are growing longer, which means fewer and fewer days until we meet again or for the first time on the shores of Moose Pond! I’m Rachel and I am thrilled to be returning to Wyo for my 13th summer. After my own personal experience as a camper, I was ecstatic for the opportunity to provide a similar experience for others; first as a cabin counselor and activity specialist, then as a Waterfront Director and Head Counselor, Program Director of Senior camp, Leadership Training Director and as Inty Unit Director last summer. After spending almost a decade as a teacher, I am pursuing my doctorate degree at the University of Denver in Curriculum and Instruction and also enjoy helping Wyonegonic with special projects. This winter, I have been working on updating the Wyonegonic activity curriculum and assisting with preparations for the American Camp Association accreditation visit. I will be returning to Maine in June as the Inty Unit Director where I will be surrounded by an amazing staff and fantastic campers from all over the world. I treasure the learning that is driven by natural curiosity found in the simplistic life of camp. I cannot wait to share this spirit with everyone this summer. I live with my husband Matt, our two year old son Nolan, and our two dogs Kona and Bean in Littleton, Colorado. We take every chance we can to get outside and enjoy a hike, swim or day of skiing. We are counting down the days until it is time to pack up the car and head east for the summer. I cannot wait to see everyone, smell the pines, take a dip in Moose Pond and hear all of the laughter.
