After 10+ years of significant adventures working for other summer camps and experiential/ecological education schools in Colorado and Upstate New York, wilderness therapy programs in Alaska and Ontario, Canada, she was invited to work at Camp Dudley in the outdoors programming department in 2011. Mollie helped with the development of the 10-day Aides experience while working at Camp in 2012. Mollie is excited to now build up programming in all things outdoors at Camp Kiniya! She is passionate about mentoring girls and young women to find comfort and confidence in their engagement with the natural world.
