is a Monktonite who loves problem-solving, music making and learning new things. He’ll be offering campers opportunities to discover what it means to be a superhero, how to be one and the opportunities to make a difference in the world. We will all unearth our unique abilities, discuss and play as we discover what it means to be a superhero as a friend, an entrepreneur and an artist. We will hear from superheroes in our own community, learn about some of the most amazing superheroes through history and how we aren't so different from them. Ultimately though, if you have an idea of what you want to do, we can do it.
If you are interested in business, justice, politics, health, or art you should join us! Liam studied Social-Entrepreneurship at Champlain College and has recently worked in two start-ups, developed and implemented afterschool curriculum, and worked on state-wide projects around Restorative Justice. Most importantly he's been having a blast making music for 8 years communicating messages of political, social and self-awareness.

is a recent Mount Abe High School graduate. She enjoys hiking, swimming, dogsledding, horseback riding, long boarding, watercolor, spray, and acrylic painting, and mixed media art. She is excited to share her passion for expression through art and writing.
Leeya will be leading a mixed media art project at the camp this summer: With a variety of media, we will explore art in many forms. Learning techniques and being exposed to new ideas will make up a big part of our time, but developing style and continuing to practice skills is encouraged too. Art gives a unique voice to its creator and eventually we hope to tap into that, making personal projects to say something important that the artist is passionate about. From traditional watercolor landscapes, painted wooden cutouts, or whatever any aspiring artist can do, the main goal is to create.
