Layton Ward, 21, grew up in Spartanburg, South Carolina and is at the University of South Carolina studying Finance and Accounting. Layton has pursued leadership in many different ways, including earning his Eagle Scout Award, acting as the Vice President of Professional Development and Alumni for his Greek life chapter, and being a selected student for the Carolina Finance Scholars. Layton started his Moondance journey as a student on Pacific Northwest and knew he had to return as a leader to bring the joy and fun his leaders brought him! He led Colorado Trail in 2021 and is back with even more passion for the Moondance family this summer.
Brita Quello, 21, is from Sioux Falls, South Dakota and just finished her junior year at Creighton University where she majors in Biology. She heard about Moondance all the way in the Mount Rushmore State after a Moondance catalog was delivered to a neighbor who had recently moved; she was immediately hooked and decided to go on the Italian Dolomites trip in 2019! Brita has been actively involved in her local community throughout her life—sharing her passion for tennis by giving youth lessons, serving as a camp counselor for Kidz Kamp, and working at Here4Youth as a caretaker for children with intellectual and physical disabilities. Brita’s high energy, fun spirit, and passion for Moondance are going to make her a fantastic leader this summer on Canyonlands!
