Lucy Greer, 22, grew up in Winter Park, FL, and currently studies Consumer Affairs at the University of Alabama. Growing up, Lucy spent all of her free time outside, which culminated in her appreciation for the outdoors. This passion brought her to Camp Mac as a camper for eight fantastic summers! It was here where Lucy discovered her ability to connect with those around her and her appreciation for tight knit communities. After gaining this appreciation, Lucy joined the Moondance family as a student on our Vietnam and Cambodia trip in 2015. This experience sparked her love for international travel, which encouraged her to spend the summer after her freshman year of college studying abroad in Cape Town, South Africa, where she also pursued her passions for service and leadership. Lucy served as a wonderful trip leader on our California trip last summer and we are so happy to have her rejoin the family in 2019 in Costa Rica!
Jack Polk, 21, was born and raised in the beautiful Gateway City. ThatÍs right folks, St. LouisÍs own is a rising fourth-year at the University of Virginia where he studies Foreign Affairs. While in Charlottesville, JackÍs been able to capitalize on some of his favorite activities like hiking, fly fishing, camping in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley, and skiing. When heÍs on campus, you can find him playing the guitar or DJÍing his hour-long radio show on WXTJ radio. Jack is no stranger to Moondance, having participated on the Northern Lights trip as a rising sophomore in high school. Like his Trip Leaders, Jack is eager to help the teenagers on his trip grow as people and learn to be their best selves. Jack reflects back fondly to the camaraderie shared on his Northern Lights trip as a student and looks forward to creating that same environment this summer on Colorado Trail, and then in Costa Rica! We're thrilled to have Jack on both trips this summer. Pura Vida!
