Ellie Bradach, 21, hails from Roswell, Georgia. Ellie is a big runner. When she’s not spending time with family or friends, you can almost always find her running trails. Ellie is a rising senior at Washington and Lee University, where that running pastime has, if anything, grown larger. She is a varsity member of W&L’s cross-country, indoor track, and outdoor track teams, participating in collegiate sports all year-round! During the little free time she now finds, Ellie loves to bake, paint, kayak, camp, stargaze, swim, and truly, anything else that can get her outside and moving. The summer before her junior year of high school, Ellie went on a Bold Earth program to Fiji. This trip further increased her passion for community service, working with teenagers, and being in the outdoors. Coupled with years of summers spent at Camp Illahee, Ellie is a fantastic addition to our Moondance family! We are so excited to have Ellie leading our Colorado Trail trip!
Addison Smith is a Nashville native! As a student at Texas Christian University, he loves majoring in Finance. Growing up, he has always enjoyed being active in the outdoors. Whether it be fly fishing, hunting, or playing lacrosse for MBAÍs Big Red, Addison did it all. His three years at Camp Rockmont prepared Addison with a passion for the outdoors, propelling him into going on a Moondance trip himself! As a rising ninth-grader, Addison participated on the Big Wild trip in Wyoming and loved every moment of it. Here, he was able to continue pursuing his love of fly fishing in the beautiful Wind River Range. This experience was so powerful that, as soon as he could, Addison found himself applying to lead for Moondance. Now here we are, full circle, so excited to have Addison leading our Colorado Trail trip this summer!
