Introducing another super cool riding instructor!

Meet Emma!

Hi I’m Emma and I’m from England, this will be my first summer at Coppercreek and my first at camp.20150331_134922

I enjoy exploring and going on little adventures. I do a lot of horse riding and enjoy skiing and playing golf.passion 7

I first started horse riding when I was 8 and since then I have taken part in Show jumping competitions and been on sponsored rides over XC fences as well as taking part in a Christmas musical ride. When I was younger I even got the chance to ride a pig!DSC_0095

This summer I am most looking forward to meeting you amazing people and working outside all day long!20150407_162328

We always love catching up with CITs after its been a few years! Introducing…

Madi McKinstry

Returning to Coppercreek? Wahoo, I’m living my dreams!
IMG_1413Hi everyone! My name’s Madi, and I was a camper for four summers and eventually a CIT for two summers. My last summer was in 2010, so it’s about time I get to come back to the best place in the world! I’m so excited to be returning as a counselor, and can’t wait to meet happy new faces and reunite with old ones. IMG_3616 - Copy

I am from Steamboat Springs, Colorado and currently attend Montana State University in Bozeman. I am working towards a double major in Global & Multicultural Studies and Latin American & Latino Studies. I love to travel and through my ski racing, I’ve been able to visit handfuls of countries in Europe and been fortunate enough to live and train in France for a winter. I also love playing in the meowtains whenever and wherever, and splashing around in any river I come to. And sometimes I like to climb up rocks. 479799_474034265947601_1798518223_n

Where are my capture the flag lovers at? Running through the forest on capture the flag night was probably the highlight of my summers as a camper, so remember your camouflage and let’s play! My boondoggle skills are a tad rusty, so I am looking forward to having boondoggles upon boondoggles hanging off my water bottle again! Can you tell boondoggle is my favorite word?
IMG_4614See you in June! Or July…or August…maybe all three!
