I grew up as a tomboy with two older brothers and a household of animals. I was riding a pony before I could even walk and I’ve never stopped loving everything about horses.

I love to surrounded myself with new people and new experiences. I am a recent Animal Science graduate from UC Davis where I found my passion for being a horse back riding instructor.

Some of my hobbies include traveling the world to work with wildlife, camping, kayaking, snowboarding, skateboarding, photography, and adventuring with my dogs- The Terrier Team (Teagan and Tango)!

Currently I live in Northern Colorado, very close to the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. I just graduated with my Bachelors in Psychology from the University of Northern Colorado. I love being around children, and hope to one day work as a School Counselor.

Aside from my professional and educational goals I love music of all kinds. Recently I have gotten into music that emphasizes the use of the saxophone as it is one of my favorite sounds.

I am a very easy-going person and enjoy the simple and fun things in life; swimming, hiking, going to concerts at the beautiful Red Rocks in Morrison Colorado, traveling, spending time with friends, and family.

I hope to spend more time working with children, traveling w/in the United States and eventually make it out of the country. 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!!
