Christy
Camp Director
I am so excited to be your Arizona Camp Director for the summer of 2016! I have spent years working with kids in fitness, educational, and camp settings. I was with Camp Shane California last summer and it was such a great experience that I knew I had to return to the Camp Shane family, even after my recent move to Tempe, AZ. I am originally from San Diego, CA and received my BA from San Diego State University. I love yoga, my dogs and painting. After years of struggling with my own weight, especially during middle and high school, I knew I needed to make a lifestyle change and have since made my health a priority in life. I hope this summer will have a similar impact on your life. Get ready for a summer to remember! Yes, you will lose weight, but you will gain TONS in memories and lifelong friendships. Can’t wait to meet you all!

Fitness, Arts/Crafts, Theater

I attend college at the University of Richmond where I run on the Women’s Division 1 Cross Country and Track Teams. Academics are always a top priority and I lean towards pursuing a degree in leadership and education. At home in Massachusetts, I enjoy visiting Boston, shopping, hiking and spending time with my family, friends and my two dogs. I also love to travel which is why I am so excited to spend this summer in Arizona.

I cannot wait to share my love of fitness with our campers. I love working with kids and have spent time as a volunteer teacher and a camp counselor before. I’m most excited to serve as a motivational and supportive voice to help campers achieve their goals. I’m so excited for summer 2017!

I am a senior at the University of Utah. I have always had a passion for exercise and athletics in both the competitive and recreational fields. I have been a competitive skier and soccer player for my entire life. I also love camping, hiking, biking and many other outdoor activities. I have been coaching gymnastics for the last 6 years and have loved working with young athletes of all ages. I am a Kinesiology major and will also be graduating with a minor in nutrition. I am very excited to meet all of the campers and staff at Camp Shane and am looking forward to having an awesome summer with everyone! I have worked at many other summer camps but am positive that Camp Shane is going to be my favorite one yet.

Two of my biggest loves in life are fitness and kids. Being able to combine those two things for a summer makes me incredibly excited for Camp Shane. I am currently a senior at the University of Utah studying Exercise and Sport Science with an emphasis in fitness and wellness. I really enjoy weightlifting and running when I am not in school or working. I also enjoy softball, volleyball and being outdoors. This will be my first time in Arizona, so I am really excited to spend my summer here. I am excited to be a part of Camp Shane to have fun, make memories and experience new things. Most importantly, I hope to have a positive influence on campers and help them reach their weight loss goals!
