Clay Covington, 22, was born and raised in Jonesboro, Arkansas and recently graduated from the University of Arkansas. Go Razorbacks! Clay is an avid outdoorsman and loves to ski, hunt, fish, hike, and rock climb. While in college, he also found his passion for studio art and photography, and he is so excited to share the things he loves most with his students this summer. After attending Camp Ozark as a kid and working as an Indoor Guide at CLIMB Bentonville, Clay has a great sense of how to create fun and positive environments for young people. We believe he is going to do just that during his first year as a Trip Leader! Welcome to the Moondance Family, Clay!
Lucy McCollum, 20, is from Atlanta, Georgia and is currently a sophomore at TCU in Fort Worth, Texas. Go Horned Frogs! She was first introduced to Moondance by her cousin turned incredible Trip Leader, May May Lanier, back in 2017 and absolutely fell in love with it. Lucy went on Northern Lights, Kilimanjaro, and Yosemite as a student and has dreamed of becoming a leader ever since. Lucy’s favorite thing about Moondance is “the community that it creates, not only on a singular trip, but with everyone that has ever been involved with or been on a Moondance trip.” We are over the moon excited to have Lucy join us for her first summer as a Trip Leader on Colorado Trail and can’t wait to watch her give back to the community that means so much to her!
Sandy Lum, 21, is a rising senior at the University of Virginia and is originally from Atlanta, Georgia. At UVA, Sandy studies Global Environments and Sustainability and used the spring of her junior year to expand her education at the School of International Training in Portugal! Sandy first discovered her love for the outdoors while attending the Outdoor Academy, a semester-long boarding school that delivers experiential education. She is driven, quick to get involved in leadership roles, and enthusiastic about everything she does. Sandy is going to bring on the energy and fun this summer!
