WHO WE ARE
PLAYSHOP LEADERS COMING SOON
Don't let his infinite wisdom fool you—Flashlight is determined not to grow up. He's full of jokes and loves to color, often outside the lines. He spends his time outside of camp as a member of the bustling creative community in the midwest, often carrying a torch and turning visions into reality. He also loves riding his bike and running in an attempt to take advantage of his long legs and is determined to grab the megaphone at the chance to fly his freak flag, despite having a secret fear of speaking in front of crowds.

CAPTAIN DANCE PANTS
As co-founder of Pones Inc, a True Body Project instructor, and founder of Nourish Cincinnati, Earl Grey wears many hats. She specializes in silly dance moves, floating in water, and eating her vegetables. Her expertise in nutrition and wellness comes in very handy at camp, making sure that campers get quality food made from real ingredients. She saved many firsts for adulthood: learning how to ride a bike, camping, zip lining, babysitting, and tree climbing—some of which didn't happen until attending adult summer camp! She has a soft spot for experimental performance art and hopes to be a member of the party planning committee when she grows up.

Midwest native turned Portland, OR local, Luxx has been a total camp junkie since first grade. After a youth full of summer camps, she worked at YMCA Camp Carson for 4 summers before the fun police told her she had to “grow up” and get a “real job” in her field of study. Jokes on them, because she eventually discovered the world of adult summer camp and now she can do both! At SPARK she combines her creative background with her passion for the camp life to conjure up unique experiences that bring people together. When she’s not dreaming up new ideas, she enjoys rollerskating, skiing, rearranging the furniture in her house, and rocking out to live music. You can catch her around the campfire singing with her friends and experimenting with new s'more recipes.
