Hellllllo Camp Augusta!

My name is Sarah and I am the Wilderness Director for summer 2023. I am so stoked to be spending another year exploring the great outdoors with y’all. While this is my third year with Camp Augusta Wilderness, I have also spent quite a few sessions counseling in Manzi (where you may recognize me from) and was even a camper myself wayyyyy back in the day!

I am (almost) 24 years young, and have dedicated the last several years to studying/ working in wilderness medicine. I am a professional ski patrol, wilderness EMT, avalanche mitigator, snow science enthusiast, and search and rescue team member. In fact, I spend at least 100 days every year on skis, a mixture of in bounds and backcountry. I love being able to combine my passion for healthcare with my desire to be outdoors!

Last fall, I moved to Southeast Alaska to study outdoor recreation and work on developing some of my hard skills. I got to climb a bunch, do some glacier travel, mountaineer, see the northern lights and explore the Tongass National Forest. It was a life-changing three months!!

After a record breaking winter in the Sierra Nevada, I am extremely excited to enjoy a sunny summer filled with climbing, backpacking, hiking and rafting. See you all soon! Yay wilderness!! <3 Sarah
