Dear <<First Name>>,

Our staff have all arrived and are hard at work preparing for campers, setting up kitchen and program materials, learning skills and become a community. You can meet our awesome counselors and support staff below! I've enjoyed getting to know new staff members and appreciate their energy and perspectives. We've also heard from our CITs and staff who were once campers about how Mountain Friends Camp changed their lives and helped them grow.
Your donations make Mountain Friends possible! With just two days left until campers arrive, we are over halfway to our $5000 match challenge! Your gifts will be doubled, and go even farther to keeping camp going for more campers. Thanks to all who have given and continue to support MFC!
Lastly, we do still have space July 24-29 for more campers, so please keep telling families about Mountain Friends Camp!

In Gratitude,
Anastacia Ebi // 435-554-1132

Mountain Friends Camp 2022 Staff

New Staff
Aliya Fagan: Hi! My name is Aliya, I use she/her pronouns and this is my fourth year attending MFC. I was a counselor in training last year here at camp and super excited to be a counselor this year! I’m from Santa Fe, NM and was introduced to MFC by my sister Natalie years ago at tree house camp. I hope to get to know both new campers and fellow staff this year, as well as welcoming familiar faces. Despite the pandemic and the devastating fires, I look forward to camp and all it includes this year!
Cameron Davidson: Cameron, or Cam, or Cammy, is a 19 year old incoming college sophomore from Tucson, Arizona. He was brought up Quaker and attended Pima Friends Meeting in his youth. For 5 years he attended MFC as a camper and is now returning for his first year as a councelor. He is an avid musician, playing trumpet, guitar, bass, and singing, and studies music at the University of Southern California.
El Ravenwhite: Hi ya’ll! My name is El and I use all the pronouns interchangeably. I grew up going to Mountain View Meeting in Denver, and attended MFC for a few of its formative years. Lately I’ve been around the country a bit doing odds and ends from blacksmithing to no-till agriculture. I currently live in the foothills of the smokies, making plans for all the seeds I’ve saved. I am looking forward to returning to a camp that set me down this path that continues to bring me joy daily.

Rae Smith: Hello! I’m Rae. I’ve been going to camp for 4 years now and I absolutely love it! I am very excited to meet new people this year and help run fun activities, especially waterfront and musical activities. Can’t wait for this summer!

Returning Staff
Kylie Hunter: My name is Kylie and I just graduated with a degree in computer science and peace studies! Some of you may recognize me as I was a regular at camp from 2011-2018, and am now returning full circle as a counselor and waterfront coordinator. I have so many amazing memories of camp, and I can’t wait for this summer to build new ones as we create community and practice peace at beautiful Collins Lake Ranch.
William Viavant: Hey, I’m William! I’m from Salt Lake City, Utah, and this is my third year as a counselor at MFC. I love board games and tabletop games like D&D, writing, paleontology, fishing, and fossil hunting. MFC is such a special and unique place, and I can’t wait to participate in camp this year and see all our awesome campers again!
Theo Bloyd: Hello! I’m Theo and I go by he/him pronouns. I live in Santa Fe, New Mexico, will be attending UNM come the fall, and hope to become a published sci-fi & fantasy author in the future. I’ve been at MFC for some eight years, and will be working a dual role of counselor & kitchen staff this year. I’m looking forward to spending time out in nature with everyone, and hope we have a great year!
Adriana Puente-Reinhardt: Hello! My camp name is Moony (she/her) and I will be serving as your Program Manager this year! I grew up attending Tempe Monthly Meeting in Arizona and am dreaming of the greener (and cooler!) pastures of Collins Lake Ranch.  My passions are reading mystery books by the lake, hiking up glorious mountains, and making art! I have been a part of Mountain Friends Camp for over a decade and I am looking forward to making sure everyone has the fun, safe, and supportive camp experience that they deserve.
Neil Norby: Hi everyone, I’m Neil. I live in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and attend the Santa Fe Monthly Meeting there. I’ve been at Mountain Friends Camp ever since 2013, as a camper, kitchen-staff in training, and kitchen staff. Every time I’ve been there has been fun! Unfortunately I wasn’t part of Zoom MFC this last year; I’m very glad it is happening in-person this year. I will be helping Beverly out in the kitchen, making sure everyone has enjoyable meals, so don’t be surprised if you don’t see me around very often.
Mary Gray McGee: I’m delighted to be here at camp with my two grandchildren, grand niece and grandnephew.  It’s exciting to be camping out in my own tent surrounded by so many young people having so much fun. I’ll be helping mostly in the Arts and Crafts/Rabbit Hutch Yurt for the two week session this year. I taught elementary school 25 years.
Liam Wheeler: Hey, my name is William “Liam” Wheeler. I was a counselor in 2017. Now, I’m a nursing school student with a Wilderness First Aid Certification, here to help provide a healthy and safe environment as the medic. At the end of the day, everyone here can consider me a friend. Through everything I do, I’m here to foster an accepting, friendly, and loving community.
