Ana Gargollo — Co-Head of Tripping & Overnights

First year at camp?

2005! I was a camper in the Dekopi unit and I came with my sister. Didn’t really know it was a bilingual camp, so that was a fun surprise.

What are you most excited about returning to camp for?

I’m most excited to go on A LOT of canoe and hiking trips! Can’t get to get out into the wilderness and teach girls survival skills! Also, many trips = a lot of campfires = a lot, a lot, a loooot of smores!

What's something you're into right now?

Right now, I’m really into hiking and being outdoors, actually. Very cliché from the future Head of Tripping to say, but lately the weather has been beautiful and I just love feeling the sun on my face! 

Being a counsellor. Thoughts?

It's underrated! It takes a lot of hard work, but it is very rewarding in the end! You learn a lot about your campers and it is amazing to see them grow over just one summer, and accomplish their goals. You also get to learn a lot about yourself, which is a great bonus!

Any last words?

Not really, just very excited to see everyone this summer!
