Hi, I'm Dana!


Dana grew up in Pinehurst, North Carolina, and spent 6 summers as a camper at GRP. She now attends UNC Chapel Hill where she studies Sociology, Women’s and Gender Studies, and Studio Art. GRP ingrained a passion for the outdoors and creativity which have stayed important parts of her life. She went on an Outward Bound expedition in Colorado after high school, and is now on the ski and snowboard team at UNC. She usually spends weekends sneaking away to the mountains to snowboard in the winter and rock climb/camp/over roast marshmallows/play in the dirt during all other seasons. Dana has a love for photography, ceramic art, and drawing too. She is on the quest to find the perfect burrito (which may or may not exist). This will be her first summer working at GRP, and she is especially looking forward to mentor hikes and council fires!
