Anna Stone, 22, hails from Spartanburg, SC, and has impressed us with not only her accomplishments but also her enthusiasm for adventure. Her academic journey includes her honor as Valedictorian of her high school, a gap year program with American University, and her spring graduation with a degree in Environmental Sustainability from Sewanee: The University of the South. She attended the Moondance Cataract Canyon, Costa Rica and Belize, Northern Lights, and Chamonix trips. Her experience as a Moondance student combined with her gap year in New Zealand, Fiji, and Australia has made her very well-traveled! She led our Big Wild in 2021 and Iceland in 2022, and we are thrilled to have Anna back for another season after her final semester at Sewanee! Anna is dynamic, passionate, silly and excited to give her all to her students for a third summer.
Foster Barnard, 22, grew up in Atlanta and recently graduated from the University of Georgia with a degree in Finance. He spent his previous summers working for law firms to prepare for law school, but used any free time he could get outside and find adventure! Foster loved leading the younger Boy Scouts in his area in camping skills, cooking, orienteering, and service. The relationships he build and spontaneous fun he was able to create meant so much to him! He has contagious positivity and energy that will make him a wonderful Moondance leader, and we are so thrilled to have him on board this summer!
Maggie Mattox, 21, is a rising senior at the University of North Carolina and is originally from Charlotte! In addition to studying Psychology and Chemistry, Maggie is involved in a variety of clubs and organizations on campus in Chapel Hill. She is also no stranger to Moondance! After attending Camp Merriwood for eight summers, Maggie went on our South Africa trip in 2017 and absolutely loved her experience. She was inspired to lead this summer after her sister, Sarah, came back from Kenya + Zanzibar last year raving about her leaders. Welcome back to the Moondance Family, Maggie!
