Hi I’m Sarah! I am super excited for my first summer at camp! I’m a junior at the University of Wisconsin study psychology. Last winter I took off a semester of school to go on a 2 month expedition backpacking and canoeing through Big Bend National Park in Texas, and dogsledding in Minnesota. I love art, music, and pretty much all things creative. I’m excited to meet everyone and have lots of fun this summer!

Hi everyone, I’m Maddy from Winter Park, FL, and this is my first summer at Sanborn! I graduated last June from Princeton University, majoring in Ecology & Evolutionary Biology (with a minor in Environmental Studies), and I’ve spend the last year-ish doing epidemiological research. A few fun facts! I have 3 younger siblings, and we’re all almost exactly 2 years apart from each other. I love to travel – I spent the year after I graduated high school living and working in Dakar, Senegal, and have lived for various amounts of time in Morocco, Panama, and Mozambique. This summer I’m super excited to meet new people, go hiking, and spend tons of time outdoors!

“Hi! My name is Astrid, and I’m a Cleveland, OH native. This will be my first summer at camp, and I’m super excited to spend it with some great counselors and campers!
A bit about me: I’m technically a sophomore at the University of Chicago, but I took the winter and spring quarters off and did a NOLS semester in the southwest region of the United States. During the semester, we backpacked through two different wilderness areas in New Mexico and Arizona, canoed down the Rio Grande (just part of it, of course), and did some rock climbing! Most other trips I’ve done have been bikepacking trips, because that’s my family’s preferred mode of adventuring. I also love to sail, run, and play an assortment of sports (soccer and ultimate frisbee being two).
A bit more about me, in the form of fun facts:
- I have three younger siblings, we’re all two years apart, and the order is girl/boy/girl/boy, starting with me. Three out of the four of us were born in June.
- I love women’s soccer! I played up until college, and now I like playing when I can and watching when possible. I’m excited about the upcoming Olympic games, assuming they’ll still happen.
- I only recently found out that you can send library books to kindles (from an online library), and that has had a negative effect on my sleep, but a very positive effect on the number of books I’m able to read. I’ve also been working at a bookstore during May, which means about half of everything I make goes back into buying books. Whoops.”
