She loved, and will always love camp, and enjoyed nothing more than spending her summers in the woods of BHEC. Camp brought her the most special friendships of her life and holds an extremely unique place in her heart. Camp taught Rachel the importance of community and gave her a strong foundation for communication, friendship, and independence. She loves to read, write, paint, and listen to music. She enjoys yoga, art, theatre, and being with her friends. Rachel is currently applying to graduate schools and hopes in the future to work in the mental health field with children.
