Hello friends. It’s me, Ko – Ko Narter for short. I’m beyond excited for my second summer as a counselor in the wonderful woods of Camp Augusta! This summer I can’t wait to zip through some trees, perform at campfires, pick up new skills (maybe stilt walking?), make new friends, deepen connections, and laugh, play, and sing with all of you!
I grew up in the Bay Area where I developed my passion for performing arts and love for nature. I spent my days doing all forms of performance – dance, theater, choir, my middle school band (the Bystanders) and writing and performing original songs. I was also once a Camp Augusta camper myself, completing the lost Tower of Terror and getting the Chicken Wrangling level bracelet. Growing up, camp was my favorite part of the whole year, and seeing as this is my 12th summer at Augusta, I don’t think much has changed.
When I’m not at camp, I live in New York City, where I study Recorded Music at New York University. I spend my days learning how to operate fancy recording equipment, honing my songwriting skills, and collaborating with some of my best friends on as much music as I can possibly make. In my free time I sing in an a cappella group, write original music, hangout with my sister, and search for pockets of nature and adventure in the city. Something I love about New York is it is so easy to explore alone, so I can hop on the subway and have access to so much in the city.
There’s a brief little introduction to my life, with some pictures of my face and other faces, and I can’t wait to learn all about all the faces, new and old, that will be with me in the woods of Augusta this summer.
