Hey everyone, my name is Jeff Sladewski and I am absolutely stoked for an incredible summer season at Sanborn! While I’m no stranger to the camp scene, this will be my first camp summer at Sanborn in beautiful Florissant, CO. This May, I will have completed a 6-year career at SUNY Cortland; I received my bachelor’s in 2019 in K-12 Health Education with a minor in Outdoor and Environmental Ed and in 2021, I received my master’s in Recreation Management. Here’s a couple of fun facts about me: while my favorite outdoor activities is definitely mountain biking (cannot wait to get out on the trails in Colorado!), I love anything and everything outdoors from backpacking to skiing to climbing to paddling. If I have the time, I also love to write. I grew up in the Hudson Valley in southern New York, about an hour north of NYC. This summer, I’m beyond excited to get outside of my comfort zone in a new place with new people and encourage our campers to do the same. Growth begins as soon as the comfort zone ends after all! I love to learn and a summer at Sanborn is going to provide an incredible opportunity to become even more experienced as a recreational professional.

Hello! I’m Mikey. This will be my fifth summer on staff at Big Spring! I am from Denver, Colorado, where I attend Metropolitan State University and I work as a tutor at a middle school. I love running, hiking, camping, and just being active! I am super excited to get back out on the trails and camp under the stars! It’s been too long!

Hey guys and gals!
My name is John Burns, though most people call me Finn.
I was born and raised in South Texas and live down by the Mexican border in McAllen.
I graduated from South Texas College with an associates degree in automotive technology and work as a mechanic and commercial equipment technician.
I went to Sanborn as a camper for 4 years. I am beyond excited to return as a counselor and I can’t wait do do some rock-scrambling!
Some tid-bits about me: I work as a mechanic for clubracers who do SCCA, NASA, and PBOC events.
I spend most of my time working, but when I have free time I like to spend it at the ranch where I grew up, or playing videogames. Have really been enjoying Escape From Tarkov recently. Board games are a big pastime of mine, Catan being my favorite.
My dream job would be restoring classic cars. Restoring Porsches in particular if I had my way.

I am currently studying Family and Child Sciences at Florida State University. Some things about me: I love music, I will sing along to nearly any song! I also love to be active which has made camp a great fit for me.This summer I am excited to just get back out to camp, hike, and meet my campers!
