Dear Friends,
We are midway through our first virtual staff orientation, and I couldn't ask for a better group of MFC veterans to work with this summer. Thank you to everyone who has supported Mountain Friends Camp, your flexibility, concern, and trust in us as we move forward with all the unknowns and challenges of 2020 is huge. Special thanks to everyone who has donated to help MFC continue, and hire these wonderful staff members, and extra special thanks to all of the campers who are signed up for our Community Camp at Home sessions, we're excited to get started!
Ana Ebi, Director, Mountain Friends Camp
PS: We're still accepting camper registrations for week 3, July 20-24!

Meet Our 2020 Camp Staff!

Lydia Bateman
I grew up in the dry heat of Arizona as an attendee of Tempe Monthly Meeting. This spring, I graduated from Soka University of America with a B.A. in Liberal Arts. This summer will be my eighth summer at Mountain Friends Camp, and my first summer as part of the program management team. I am excited to find creative ways to bring the camp experience to this new virtual environment. I hope to see you on a Zoom call soon!

Hello, I'm Theo! I use he/him/his pronouns. Currently, I find myself living in Santa Fe, NM, though I wouldn't say no to a trip to Japan when I learn the language. My interests include reading, writing, cats, video games, and more reading. I've been attending Mountain Friends Camp for several years now, and look forward to making new friends this year!

Nicola Gacy
Hello! My name is Nicola and my pronouns are she/her/hers. I’m from Lafayette Colorado and I will be a sophomore at Earlham College this fall in Richmond Indiana. I grew up Quaker in Boulder Friends Meeting and made life long friendships at MFC as a camper, counselor in training, and counselor! I love making bread, fermentation, cats, geckos, reading, and playing music. I will miss the beautiful Mora air for just this year, but I’m so excited to experience a little magic from home!

Tynan Gacy 
Hi! I'm Tynan Gacy (my camp name is Tiny), and my pronouns are he/him or they/them. I am a born-and-raised Quaker currently finishing my Neuroscience degree at Earlham College in Richmond Indiana, but my family and my heart are firmly planted in the Rockies of Colorado. I have been a camper, CIT, counselor, and medic through the years of MFC, and I am excited to see what this year will hold for us! If we were in person, I would be itching to hike, camp, play Ultimate Frisbee, and sing songs around the campfire, but my loves of reading, writing, cooking, art, and games of all sorts will be better expressed through our shared virtual space. I am so excited to see all faces, both fresh and familiar!
Jamie Slick 
I live in Louisville, CO, and attend Boulder Friends Meeting. This will be my seventh summer at camp, and my first year as a full staff member. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone again on Zoom!
Ana, Beverley & Eric,
will be returning for our combined 30th summer of Mountain Friends Camp! Beverley is the mastermind and muscle behind the “buddy boxes” for campers, and Eric and Ana will be supporting our counselors in the virtual camp sessions. We’re all looking forward to seeing new and returning campers and making more camp memories!
