Tripping

Hello, my name is Mason Moore. I grew up in Denver, Colorado, and have just finished college at Colorado Mesa University in Grand Junction. My passions range from cooking, reading, and traveling to hiking, skiing, and floating the Colorado River. Growing up in Colorado I have had plenty of chances to explore the mountains and found an immense love for the outdoors. I've been ice climbing in Ouray, sand sledding at the Sand Dunes National Park, tide pooling at Del Norte Redwoods, caving in South Dakota, and backpacking in the wilderness of Canada. I have been very fortunate to have these opportunities and hope to be an advocate for the wonderful experiences that are out there that are available to anyone willing to find it.


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

I am most proud of my Eagle Scout Award. It was the first time I was thoroughly challenged in communication, effort, and planning. I honestly believe the path to Eagle set me up for the future. Better yet, I even got to complete Eagle with my patrol members and found friends for life on the various trips, instructional lessons, and Eagle Scout projects we all worked through together.
What is your favorite hobby/sport/thing to do during your free time?:

If it takes place outside, I have probably thought about doing it. Ice climbing, top-roping, bouldering, rafting, trail running, 14ers, etc. However, my absolute favorite would be backpacking. Nothing is better than getting a day or two out in the deep wilderness and choosing where the sleeping bag is going to be for the night. Hoping there will be a river where the map said. Realizing you are exhausted once you get back to the car. Nothing beats the adventure of backpacking for me.
What is your favorite thing about working with children?:

Their inexperience. Children bring so much nuance and newness into whatever they do that I feel adults can easily overlook due to years of experience and repetition. They bring their own little bit of novelty into the things we have done over and over. It is also highly rewarding to get the chance to introduce new experiences to a kid and see that surge of excitement as they discover a brand-new passion or see a viewpoint they will take with them for the rest of their lives.
What impact are you most excited to make this year at CCB?:

I hope I will be able to give these campers a summer camp they won't forget for years to come. Each and every camper deserves to have fun and outstanding trip where they will make memories, friends, and lifelong skills. I hope to leave a positive and memorable impact on all the campers I will get the opportunity to mentor this summer.
What goal or camp philosophy do you really want your campers to learn this summer?:

I hope the campers will leave with a deeper respect for the outdoors and their peers. To truly enjoy what our earthly backyard offers us as a way to connect to oneself and to others. To foster a healthy relationship with both our natural world and with each other. There is a beautiful world out there in nature waiting to be discovered.
