Hey there! I'm Abby and I'm from Charlotte, North Carolina. I'm very excited to be part of the photo/video team this summer. I have had the pleasure of working on Team Music and Earthworks in the past! The magic of both camp and the greater Blue Ridge Mountains is unparalleled, so I can't wait to help document the campers' experiences :)

What are you most proud of/biggest achievement in life so far?:

I am most proud of following my own path and staying true to my spirit in the face of adversity.
What is your favorite hobby/sport/thing to do during your free time?:

I enjoy movement of all types, especially running and swimming! I also find pleasure in all things creative, from poetry to cooking. :)
What is your favorite thing about working with children?:

Children bring such light. They are often more in tune with their natural processes and states of being than we are, and from this, I learn a lot. They allow me to return to simplicity. Plus, I can't go five minutes without one of them making me laugh. :)
What impact are you most excited to make this year at CCB?:

I hope to capture just how special this place truly is. I have spent two summers watching and experiencing the greatest laughter, triumphs, and friendships gained, from campers and staff alike. I would like to give back to this place by creating physical manifestations of everything we experience together.
What goal or camp philosophy do you really want your campers to learn this summer?:

I want the campers to learn how to slow down. In a world that goes one hundred miles an hour, finding a grounding practice is so important. Yoga and meditation are my ways of re-centering, and while it won't look like this for the campers, simply basking in the sunlight or playing with blades of grass do the trick as well. :)
I would also like to encourage the campers through challenges (a hard hike, rock climbing), as they will learn just how far courage can take them.
