I can still remember my first float plane ride to Langskib in the summer of 2009. I can remember the first time I saw the Island, the first night I spent on trail, but more than anything I can recall the first time I realized Northwaters Langskib was more than just a ‘camp’. I could tell, almost immediately, that there was something different about the people here. There was purpose in the way they carried themselves, and when they spoke, there was care. I knew I was somewhere special. The community at NWL has changed my life in more ways than I can say. I’ve learned how to be honest, courageous, and strive only for the highest degree of excellence in everything that I do. Working here has given me a chance to pass that same experience on to the next generation.
When I’m not paddling the waters of northern Quebec and Ontario, you can find me at Bates College studying Physics and Chinese, with a concentration in Environmental Science. I also enjoy hiking, rock climbing, and essentially any activity that lets me live like I’m wild and sleep under the stars.
