Hi, I'm Wade!


Wade grew up in Chapel Hill, NC, and attended GRP for 7 years—5 at Base Camp, followed by the Outer Banks and Blue Ridge Expeditions. He absolutely loves the Western North Carolina mountains, and all of the outdoor activities that come with it, be it fly-fishing, backpacking, climbing or paddling. Wade is finishing up a gap year, where he did a 30-day NOLS course, traveled for 3 months in Central America, interned for the state legislature, and worked at a restaurant. He will attend Washington University in St. Louis in the fall. Wade loves sports; he ran track and cross country and played high school basketball. He also plays violin, guitar, mandolin, and will sing the occasional tune around the camp fire. He’s very excited to be back at GRP!
