Camper, CIT, JC, COUNSELOR… meet Emily!

Hello! My name is Emily and I am BEYOND excited to be coming back to Coppercreek (finally!) for my sixth year but my first on staff! I am so excited to finally be coming home! I am an English major, Russian minor at Lafayette College in Pennsylvania. On campus I am a part of a student run musical theatre group and our equestrian team. The outdoors has always been my happy place. I grew up hiking and camping with my family and spent my summers here!

I adore animals and have been riding since I was 10. Though I’m not riding staff you’ll still see me at the very least sneaking in some pony kisses! I’m so excited to be a cabin counselor so you will see me everywhere!

Some personal favorite activities of mine are small animals, high ropes, deck fun, drama, horses and of course outpost! I met some of my best friends at camp who I still see and keep in touch with today and I am so so excited to be coming back for a full summer of FUN! I can’t wait to meet you all!

9 years in the making… Meet Caitlin!

Hey everyone! My name is Caitlin and I am so ridiculously excited to be coming back to camp this summer! This will be my ninth summer at camp and my first on staff (which is something I’ve looked forward to being able to say since I was ten years old!)


I’m from California but am currently studying Theatre and English at Wesleyan University in Connecticut. I love all the wacky theatre things I’ve been a part of here so far! Aside from theatre, I really love music and singing, and my ukulele, Luna, will definitely be joining me at camp! I’m also on the Wesleyan equestrian team!

I absolutely love horses and am so glad I’m going to get to spend my summer down at the barn at camp! I’ve been riding in lessons consistently since I was 12 and showed in jumpers throughout high school.

Fun fact: I actually found out about Coppercreek because of an ad in the back of a horse magazine! My summers as a camper down at the barn were always one of the best parts of my year, and I’m so happy I get to share that with you all this summer! Can’t wait to meet everyone!!
