We Welcome Your Application to Join Us!
We build each of our groups with care, keeping the groups small (no more than twelve students), and paying close attention to age, grade, gender, and the mix of hometowns and schools. Our goal is to put together great groups — groups where nice kids thrive in a supportive, wholesome, and caring environment. Please note: availability as shown is based on students traveling without a friend; if your child is interested in traveling with a friend, please call our office for availability.

Hometown: Mechanicsville, Virginia

Last summer, as a horse wrangler at a camp in Colorado, I felt great joy witnessing my campers’ excitement as they learned how to ride horses on the beautiful Rocky Mountain trails.
Originally from Mechanicsville, Virginia, I am a mechanical engineering student and a senior at the University of Virginia. I’m on the snowboard team here, so in the winter, I spend every weekend and many weeknights snowboarding in Virginia or North Carolina. I’m also a part of Young Life College, a Christian ministry for college students. In my free time, I like to play sports with friends, go on hiking trips, take spontaneous road trips, or read a good book. On a beautiful day, I enjoy playing Spikeball or volleyball on the Lawn at UVA for hours.
In 2019, I led Rocky Mountain Explorer. Overland has a culture of kindness and selflessness. Whether it was helping encourage a student to complete Mt. Elbert, our challenge hike, or helping students develop their independence around camp, I enjoyed each moment I spent with my groups.
