Henry Dyke, 25, joins the Moondance family as a first-time leader from Chicago, IL. Henry currently works in D.C. as a consultant for Deloitte Consulting, but is taking advantage of their leadership sabbatical program to serve as a leader for us this summer and we couldnÍt be more excited about it! Henry is a graduate of the University of Virginia where he studied foreign affairs. In prior summers, Henry worked as a counselor at Woodberry Sports Camp for multiple years until he stepped into the role of assistant director there. Henry has always held a passion for working with teenagers as well as a passion for exploration. He completed an Outward Bound course as a student, which sparked his fascination for the outdoors that he holds to this day. He completed the Camino de Santiago on a solo hike after studying abroad in Spain for a full semester. We are so excited to have Henry as a leader this summer and canÍt wait for him to change the lives of his students in Chamonix!
Bowen Spottswood, 23, grew up in Point Clear, AL, and is a recent graduate of Washington and Lee University. As a student, she studied both Religion and Poverty + Human Capability Studies. Bowen loves to work with others and really values serving as a positive role model for teenage students. This passion has manifested itself in many facets of Bowen’s life. She served as a peer counselor since her junior year in high school and continued to hold this position throughout college. Bowen co-founded the “Sunset Club” at Washington and Lee, which seeks to encourage college students to experience and appreciate the outdoors. Furthermore, Bowen volunteered through the Owings Fellowship, which provided her with the opportunity to work with middle and high schools, where she engaged with the student body while strengthening their honor system. Bowen’s passions extend beyond working with teenage students. Her love for adventure led her to lead an Appalachian Adventure trip for Washington and Lee’s pre-orientation program, which was a five-day backpacking trip designed for incoming freshmen to experience outdoor adventure. Bowen worked as an amazing leader for us on our Northern Lights trip last summer and spent the first half of this past year working for the Outing Club at W&L in an administrative position. From there, she traveled to Spain to live with a host family and explore more of Europe. We are so fortunate to have Bowen as a trip leader once more in Chamonix this summer!
